    Just bought a new Z a week ago. This is one bad a-- machine!!
    My mowing time is almost cut in half! Constuction is just heavy-duty.
    I'm happier than a gopher in soft dirt. Dislikes include half thottle
    blade engagement,small air filter and no separate choke.Other than that you can't beat the quality.

    Thanks for your comments. For your information there is a seperate choke kit available if you would like to make that change. There will also be a remote filter available some time in the April - May time frame. Thanks again for buying Hustler and for your feed back.

    Yep, you did great! I purchased a Super Z in October and I love it. The one I have has the remote choke it work nice. If you have any question email me. I can't wait for the grass season. This is one bad machine.... Owen Bryant

    I drove a Z the other day an am convinced that it is the mower for me. It just felt solid and fast and I didn't feel like i would come off of the seat. This is a great design. Can any you tell me how deep the deck is? This is on a 52" hustler Z. and is the mulch kit just a baffle or does it keep all grass in seperate baffles? Thanks and have a good one, BIll

    The Hustler Z and Super Z decks are 5" deep.

    The mulch kits are baffles that isolate each blade and includes "kickers" to deflect the grass back into the blades to be cut and recut.

    Both of those things are exactly what I wanted to hear. Thanks so much for being quick with the reesponse. Can you by any chance tell me if there are any more dealer or prospective dealers in my area? The only dealer that i know of isn't conveniently located so that is the only thing keeping me from buying a Z. Dealer support is vital when you are such a small company. Thanks again and have a good one, Bill.

    By the way i am in Little Rock Arkansas:D

    The most up-to-the-minute dealer listing is on our web site. It is updated almost immediately after a new dealer comes on board. We are signing up dealers at a blistering pace, so check back often. We do realize how important a good dealer is. Good luck.

    I just bought a 60" Super Z today and mowed for the first time. just as I was finishing my last lawn it stared pouring rain. I thought, I would still be several stripes away from completion and soaked, great machine.

    One of the main reasons (besides quality) is the interaction and follow up by Hustler. I have meet Paul in person and PJ twice, great guys and great company.

    I have a question (if you have posted it already and have a link just let me know), what is the purpose of a remote choke? I may have to look onto the mulch kit.

    Is your choke in the throttle or is it separate??
    If it is separate, your all set.
    If not, you can have Chad update it to have a separate choke.
    We have recently been changing this.
    Let me know.
