    Pj-

    When will these machines hit our dealers for touch/try/buy? I need a 36" WB soon and a new model Ferris 36" Hydrowalk is the best fit for my needs--unless a TrimStar is in the pipeline. I would MUCH rather get a Hustler H-bar and would wait a little while if they are headed our way.

    Are the models and prices still as you posted a vew months ago?

    It's April, now--what can you tell us?

    Jim

    The Trimstar and the Gatestar line is going through a deck design change and testing at this time.
    They are not available and I have no information to when they will be.
    Also, I have not heard on the pricing yet, if it will change or not.
    Sorry I can not help you anymore than this.
    our current Hustler WB's are available in a 37" and in H-Bar steering, but is a bit more in price.

    I'm not Trying to Rub Salt in Your Wound but You guys Need to Listen to Mowing Contractors...When that Deck design was first Shown in 2002 I posted Here and sent e-mail to Hustler telling them that 4 chambers w/that tiny discharge opening and the huge overhang would not work.

    You could tell that deck was a lemon by looking at it.

    Best of luck getting the Gatestar off the ground. I have Lots and Lots of Gates.... What you need is 3 chambers and either an articuling offset or somthing like the new Cub Z-wing which halves the offset by putting flip up deck on either side.

    No wounds to rub salt in, so no need to worry.
    We do listen to contractors, we develop our product with input from many contractors and end users.
