    There are four divisions of Hustler Commercial mowing machine: Hustler Z Hustler Super Z, Hustler Mini Z, and Hustler Super Mini Z. Do they all cut the same and have the same decks? If a 52" Hustler Z had a 27HP engine and a 52" Hustler Super Z had the identical 27HP engine, would both mowers cut the same? Is the only difference comfort features? Also, what make a Hustler ZTR better than a Toro ZTR assuming both parties providing the same great service? Thanks in advance.

    If you keep your ground speed the same, the Hustler Z and Super Z will cut identical.
    The Mini Z and Super Mini Z do have a slightly different designed deck, they cut just as good I feel as the full frame units.
    What makes Hustler better than a Toro? your dealer is major factor in there of course, but build quality, design, and components all have to factor in there also.
    The Hustler is built for less maintenance, more mowing, which means more money in your pocket.
    Demo both and then make your decision, I feel you will find the Hustler to be your mower of choice.

    AS A CONTRACTOR WHO HAS BOTH MACHINES, HERE IS A FEW THINGS that are different, the hustler is much faster getting to and from your mowing and the hustler has no mule belt from the back of the engine and running through idler pulley to the deck. It has a belt under the engine going straight to the deck no loss of power. THE hustler WARRANTY IS 2 YEARS NOT ONE LIKE TORRO. the deck is much heavier steel , the center of gravity is lower so it holds the hills better. the hydros are much stronger so it turns much better. The hustler is also shorter so it takes less trailer space. AND THE MOST IMPORTANT IS HUSTLER WILL BE THERE IF THERE IS EVER A PROBLEM AND TORO WILL NOT. The dealer might both be good but the company that built the mower meaning hustler really cares about there customers, and wants them to be happy with there equipment. Torro is just another big company that is bottom line driven.
