I just purchased my first Hustler Super Z 60" here in Ct and all I can say is wow!! This thing is built like a like a heavy piece of equipment. It looks like caterpillar built the frame on this thing. It hold slopes incredible and stripes awesome. I demoed grasshopper, exmark, scag, ferris, ETC. you name it i tried them all. I just cut my 1.5acre lawn with hills trees and share of bumps in 40 minutes... this thing cuts incredible! The comfort level is second to none and the 3 bagger vac system is the cats *****. I have a hydroseeding buisness and was getting sick and tired of giving away all the lawns I installed. So i simply put my retired father and lazy brother to work LOL. I honestly believe that I made probably the best investment ever. I bought the machine and bagger system for 10k out the door 6% tax included. I love the adjustable handles and im sure my father will utilize the coffee cup holder. I made up my mind after cutting my property with 5 different machines and felt the hustler was the best overall. Only time will tell how the machine holds up...but from first impressions It is prbably the most underated ZTR on the market. Don't shy away from the fact that they are new to the ZTR industry they have been building commercial equipment for 35 years. I'll tell everyone out there to try all the others first and then try the hustler.
