    I'm looking at the hustler vs toro in the 42 " frame. Both have the Kawasaki 21.5 engine. Everything about them are close to the same, except the toro is a stamped deck, but seems to have a couple of more whistles and bells, (speed control, blade assist, and higher seat. Warranty's look similar...

    I would like some opinions which way I should consider, they are comparable in cost. I will be bagging when necessary, I can't find any prices on line for the hustlers catcher. That will be a consideration as well... Has the raptor performed well since its been out? I need to replace for a last years Dixon that kept throwing the drive belt at dealer expense but I couldn't take it any longer. I mow a flat half acre with lots of trees and planted beds...
