    :waving: Just joined and have a question. Looking at 2006 20/52 with Honda versus a 2007 19/48 with a Kawasaki. Both about the same price. Mowing 2.3 Acres mostly flat trees on 1/2 of it. Have a JD277 AWS 48 now but want to get it it done faster and nicer the JD looks like it always leaves circle around the trees like it leans when going around trees. I want a ZTR and Hustler looks the best to me now to decide the benefits of the 2. I'm 6ft 3 and I need leg room Recommendations?:)

    Just by you mentioning leg room, I certainly would go with the 19/48.
    They are both top of the line models and both are top sellers for us in the FasTrak series, but the 2007 has more leg room due to seat positioning and the no tools seat slide adjustment, where the 20/52 does not have this.

    Are there any other advantages with the 2007?

    I would go with the 2007 due to the upgrades. I'm 6-foot-1, and I just got a 2007 19/48, and I have plenty of leg room. The seat adjustment is great. There is also a lot of talk about the side chute. Many Hustler owners were wanting a rubber chute added, and Hustler has done that for 2007.

    The Kawasaki 19hp engine is fantastic.

    Does anyone know if the ZT 2800 series pump/wheel motors are the charged version?
