I bought the Phazer w/ 19 Kawasaki and 44" for $3,999. Just couldn't pass up such a good price on such a good machine. It is for home use only so this mower should last me a long time. Other brands wanted this much and more for straight home owner units. Also, the dealer was great compaired to some place I went to. Basicallly came down between the hustler fastrack and the Phazer and with the Phazer being $1000.00 cheaper a no brainer. The Hustler dealer was great also but buying an Exmark for that price won out.
