    I've had the 48" Sport with Honda for a year now. I mow 2 acres with 20-30 trees with some mild slopes. So far the mower has been great, I have no complaints with it. My only regret would be not getting the Fast-Trak for the serviceable Hydros. I'm just worried how the hydros will hold up 5-10 years from now. Worse case scenario, I can replace both hydros for around $1000. I spent months researching mowers in this range and I feel the Sport is the best value under in the $3000-$4000 range.

    I have a hustler sport 42" I got it 6-10-10. I mow about 15 yards every 2 weeks. I love it. I bought it instead of the bad boy because the warranty was longer and it is lighter ( I pull my trailer with a car). The only problem I have had is the drive belt come off. It is very easy to put back on. The whole mower is easy to work on. Someday when it dies, I will buy another Hustler.

    I went with the 42" with Honda LOVE it. I have had no issues and the best compliment I can give it is this, it still starts and mows like the day I bought it. I don't have a link but if you search my user name you will see how I have it set up with grass catcher, sprayer, and snow plow. I did post a lot of photos. There are better zero turns out there but not for the money. :usflag:

    I have an 09 sport 42 with the Honda. Mechanically, the machine has been flawless. It cuts well and has plenty of power. Only drawback for me is the cost and width of the bagger system. It cuts well and maintenance is foolproof. The machine is built like a tank.
