2 years ago i bought a Hustler Super Z 66/Kohler 30 mower for personal use and a part time lawn mowing business. Today I visited the dealer that has dropped the Hustler line in favor of the Bad Boy. I tested the Bad Boy Lightning Z 6000/Kaw 31 and the Kubota ZD 331 on this fine Bahia grass that grows locally. There is no comparison in these mowers! The Hustler will dust the others in all ways, except comfort. That Kubota is a very comfortable ride, but costs way too much and doesn't handle very well. It cuts pretty good, but leaves some objectionable patches in the grass. The Bad Boy seems slower than the Hustler Z 60/Kaw 25 I originally owned and doesn't cut very well at all. The ride is slightly better than the Super Z, but I only have the suspension seat on the SZ. I paid slightly more for the SZ than the Bad Boy, but a whole lot less than the Kubota. You could almost own 2 of the Super Z mowers for the price of the Kubota! I told the dealer/owner that I already owned a machine better than these two and asked him why he has the Bad Boy line instead of the Hustler!? Its because of the salesman. I think he should drop this salesman and get a new one! The only local Huslter dealer has far less competency, a much smaller shop, and some creepy looking people working there! I wish you'd go back with the dealer I bought mine from. My 2 cents... And I'm working on auditioning some of the Flex Forks.
