    P.J. What was Hustlers reasoning behind the discontinuing of the Shortcut ?

    There are a few......
    Expensive unit to produce for the smaller market share it appealed to.
    When we had to remove the stand up feature of the mower, the appeal wasn't as strong.
    Our Hustler Z series started coming out around the same time we discontinued the Shortcut, thus dealers demanding more Z's, and less orders for Shortcuts was the result.
    It is a great mower, I sold plenty of them, still one of my all time favorite mowers.
