    Is the Hustler Fastrak suitable for commerical use? I like the compact dimensions and weight, and the 44" deck makes it fit through gates better. And I'm aware that a lower hp mower may not handle stuff a big mower will. But for part time or 2nd mower status, would it be a good choice?

    What aspects of this design would be negatives for commercial use?

    The FasTrak is for home owner use only.
    It is not for commercial use.
    The items that differ between the FasTrak and the Mini Z or Super Mini Z (the FasTraks bigger brothers) are drive system, seat, tire size, frame differs a little also.
    The main thing though is the drive system, we use the Hydro Gear IZT system, it is intended for home use. There are a couple of other MFG's that are using this drive system in a commercial unit, but they do not have anywhere near the amount of steel we put in our units. If we took a bunch of steel out of our unit it would most likely be ok.
    If you want a commercial unit built like a tank with a 44" deck you need to look at our Mini or Super Mini Z, they even offer larger engine options.
