    Hey everyone.

    As most of you know, I can't drive yet, but will be able to this December.

    I was thinking about m set-up for next year, and was wondering what you thought about it.


    • Truck:
    • 2000 Chevy S-10...4.10 Rear Axle, With Air Shocks
    • Trailer:
    • 5'x10' with 3500# axle...2' high sides
    • Mower:
    • Hustler Mini Fastrak 36" with Honda Twin 16HP
    • Trimming Mower:
    • 22" Toro Personal Pace
    • Trimmer:
    • Echo SRM-210
    • Stick Edger:
    • Echo PE-200
    • Blower-
    • Echo PB-261
    • Hedge Trimmer
    • Echo HC-150


    Yes, I will have racks for everything (Trimmer, Blower, and Hedge Trimmer)

    I think this Set-up will work really well, only because all my customers have less than a 38" gate.

    What do you all think?

    Substitute that mini FasTrack for a gravely 34Z and dont even bother with the push mower. The mini FasTrack is not a commercial unit.

    I don't like the Gravely. It rides too rough, and I read on here, The hustler gives the Gravely a run for the money. It's not like I"m going to be doing 100 yards a week with it. Maybe 30 at the most.

    And best of all, The Hustler is 2k cheaper.

    Better yet if you need a small deck and like Hustler I would step up to the Mini-Z 36" Commercial unit

    Ride rough? Where did you get that idea from? Also how much does the hustler go for? You can get a 34Z for around 4K. We absolutely love our 34Z.

    I think we payed like $3,800 for ours. I am surprised they went up that much in price.

    Well, I know that, I said I could get it for 4,800. I just didn't like the 34z.
