    Trying to decide between the Super Walk Behind 54 inch or the Hydro Walk Behind 54 inch. Is the Super worth the extra $500? Any pros/cons of either. I currently own a Hydro Walk behind 37 inch so I am familiar with Hustler. I would not be using a grass catcher. It seems as though the Super is has more power than I may ever need, but maybe that is a good thing. Any advice would be appreciated.

    If you can afford the extra $'s, it is worth every bit of it.
    I have never had anyone complain that they have to much hp.
    Larger tires = smoother ride and the HD remote air filter is a big plus also.

    I have the super 48" and love it I looked at the "standard 17hp ones but waited for the super. I like having enough power for anything. I use a sulky 90% of the time and bag about 50%. I run double blades always. The larger tires and wider stance of the super gives it great stability and smooth ride. I think it is well worth the extra $ for the super. With the super and a sulky you have a WB that can do anything a similar size rider can do and more.
