    Is the deck lift available for pre XR-7 decks? Any other information on it?

    Thanks,

    The lift kit will fit any full frame Hustler Z and Super Z, including diesels all the way back to 1999.

    I use my foot to lift the deck quickly in a lot of different situations, can this hydraulic lift respond fast enough to do anything other than just raise and lower the deck at a slow speed. There are always places you need to raise the deck a few inches and then let it back down after you have traveled only a very short distance, it does not seem to me the hydraulic lift could react that quickly.

    Kit, Hydraulic Deck Lift, fits Hustler Z / Super Z part # 102186 MSRP $499.00
    (does NOT Fit Mini Z / Super Mini Z)
    It is very easy to install and you only drill 2 holes.

    The lift is quick, but not as quick as you can do it with your foot.
    The foot pedal is still fully functional, so you can lift the deck quickly if needed and still use the hydraulic lift when you want also.
    This lift kit is great for anyone that wants it, and for the larger decks and of course anyone who may have a weak leg, or just may need to use it instead of there foot.

    I had it installed on my Super Z diesel, not as fast as I had hoped.

    It is useful. The other thing I di was installed lever extendors so I
    could get my knees back . That lets me react with my foot petal
    quicker. Get it!
