    I'd buy one. I had the older version bought it used. Hustler really needs to make a 60 inch WB. With the H bar and XR 7 deck. But this has already been discussed . According to Hustler not happening. A larger capacity Bac-Vac say 13 bushels. This is a big advantage Exmark has over Hustler; they offer all of these things.

    I think the shortcut is better then the stand-ons. its high but so are the stand-ons.

    What height is the seat at? Some people would get a nose bleed climbing into the seat of a Gravely ProMaster 20-G. :D

    Sitting high does give you a better view. Till you run into a tree limb.:(

    Picture below is of 2 of the PM 20-Gs and a Modified PM-50 converted to a 2 wheel Gravely.

    True. Sitting on the PM 20-G puts the top of my head at about 6'3" above the ground. Standing on the Gravely ProStance puts it at about the same height. I'd think that the Hustler would put your top of your head at about 5'6" or so. Mowing in the Avocado grove is ruled out for anything that puts your head over 5' 6" up.
