    Well a simple but very important ? can you push down on the bars to go over roots, rocks etc? That seems to be the one advantage to pistol grips. I tried Lesco's new handles great but I can't push down on the bars to raise the deck, this is important to me.

    Don't know about hustlers but it's not a problem with Exmark's ecs controls.

    I can push down on my hustler to raise the front fine. It's easier when using the sulky though. With the larger front wheels of the hustler it will drive up curbs at an angle whithout having to push on the handles. I just go around big rocks and roots but have crossed gravles drivways by just pushing down on the handles. I also wheelie up the trailer ramp a bit to keep from dragging the deck. No problems. Try the h-bar hustler. you should be pleased.
