    How much does a 36" Trimstar go for?

    Nothing new from this owner, still love it. Still no hand fatigue like I had with my old pistol grip. Got the controls down pat and take it on hills and in places that I never dreamed of before. Would never dream of going to a machine with different controls. I still think if you've ever rode a motorcycle you would appreciate these controls more. All I can do is echo coolluv's comments and say demo one. It may be for u and it may not. If it was for everyone then all the others would be out of business.

    What keeps the pace if you don't need to hold the twisted handle in a specific position? Why doesn't it return to "neutral?"

    There is no resistance again the controls so your not working against anything.

    I guess its not designed to automatically return to neutral.

    The controls are stiff enough to hold the position by themselves but not too stiff as to be hard to operate. Its very easy to operate.

    I guess I'll have to use one in a real world situation to get the best understanding.
    The thing I like about my current hydro WB's is that if I want to go forward I do nothing at all while using it.
    My other 2 Hydros are 48" and 52".
    I'll be looking for a 36" only for backyard gates so it probably won't matter much anyhow.

    I have the previous model hustler 36". The new controls are much better and the deck adjustment lever is super cool! Don't get me wrong I love my WB and will by a new hustler if mine ever wears out. Even after 7 years this machine still kicks a$$.

    I had a 48" trimstar until I traded it in on a rider. It was an awesome machine for a walkbehind. I would love to get a 36" someday. They are pretty pricey for a walkbehind though. Controls are awesome on these things
