    I realize these are not available yet, but which machine would you anticipate being better, the Hustler Mini z 36 or the Exmark Phazer 34?

    I would think that Hustler may have the advantage because they already have smaller sized units in their line up already in the Fastrak and Mini Fastrak and these have been successful. They will be increasing the thickness of the frame tubing, changing engines, and hydraulics but the mower seems like it looks pretty close to the design of the current Mini Fastrak which has the 36" and 42" decks that the new one will use also.

    I agree. I think the Hustler would probibly be the better choice.

    I'd be interested in either. But here, Exmark is a the dominant brand, and dealers are more plentiful, more committed, and closer by. They look very similar in concept and design. I like the fact that I have experience with the deck on the Exmark and like how it works in the 48" configuration, so that's one less variable to worry about. I'd have to take a good look at both, though.
