Just bought my new Mini Fastrak a few weeks ago! The cut quality is awsome! The ride is fun! I've only used it three time and can't wait for summer to have more fun. :blob3: Although a home owner's machine, this thing is build tough! I looked at everything from Snapper, Dixie Chopper, Scag, John Deere and everything else in between, with the 36" GHS Walker a close second. The difference was not so much the price, but the dealer, Gautreaux's Lawn Care. They are great, honest, very helpful. We service and repair all kinds of equipment including large and small commercial grass cutting equipment so I know the difference in build, problems,and issues, believe me, everyone has some. Hustler has a great product and nothing to be ashamed of, in fact I wish the name "Hustler" was out in front and sides so people would stop asking me who makes it and I could keep on Z-riding! LOL!.
