    Was at the PA Farm Show this week and saw the new Hustler Super 104 on display
    http://www.hustlerturf.com/products/super-104-new.html

    Says its new for 2013. Looks like a beast of machine. The Hustler rep was not there. Couldnt find any pricing info, other than less than $30k. Must be $29.9. Any one demo one of these yet.

    $22k sounds a lot more realistic. I would be interested in testing one out

    I wouldn't invest in one. You could buy 2, 60" or 72" mowers with the same money, have higher productivity, easier to resale, used on more properties. Draw back is one more employee which costs more.

    Only reason I would buy one is if I could run 30hrs plus a week in the season and have a 3yr contract on a account(s). Otherwise the gamble of getting stuck on a high price niche machine isn't worth it to me.

    Drove one at GIS expo this year. The machine is a beast! Drives like a much smaller machine however is not practicle unless cutting sod farms or something of the like.
