    I'm looking at getting a new 36". The Lesco has the same 15hp kawi motor as the hustler. The Lesco is a couple hundred cheaper. I know lesco is basically an MTD mower. What do you guys think is more durable, or better, or what's a preference? Lesco or Hustler?

    When customers ask me "Whats better" I always tell them they need to go more on whats better for you I can't tell you which is better. As far as motor and trans yes they are the same and so are the warranties for both those items but thats usually were the similarities end. How is the dealer support for both items, parts availability, and repair turn around time(everything will brake at some point even new). Demo both and see what one feels better to you. Remember everyone will have an opinion but your the person who has to work with your decision everyday.

    Hope this helps:)
