    Very few people knew I had a prototype Hustler Trimstar all season. My job was to put some hours on it and field test it.

    1st impressions were its a very heavy built machine. Leave it to Hustler to build a small w/b tank. It was their first attempt at a pistol grip hydro. Yes it does come with the H-bar, but since some companies want pistol grips they are trying to accomodate them also. I field tested the pistol grip model.

    There were some pro's and con's to this machine. Rest assured everything I could tell them on both sides I did. I will get into those later.

    This is a 3 blade (12" blade) 36" w/b with the new 15 hp twin kawi. Its a beast of a motor and it very rough high conditions you didn't even hear the motor change sounds.

    I used the machine with mulch kit installed and also side discharge.

    To start...here are a few pics...
