I finally got my new mowers this week (hustler super z 60 with 27 kohler and hustler super walkbehind 54 with 25 kawasaki) and I am super pleased with the way that both of these mowers performed. The super z with the 27 kohler is even better than I expected it cuts the thick stuff better then the 25 kawasaki super z and it holds it's power longer. The super walkbehind is a monster and I couldn't find grass tall enough to bog this mower down, this is by far the strongest walk behind mower on the market. I am glad that hustler listened to us (lawnsite members) when they made these changes to their mowers. The best thing about these mowers were the price, my plow dealer just became a hustler dealer and he gave me my discount that he gives me when I buy a plow so if anybody is looking for a great price on a hustler e-mail me and I will get you in touch with him.
