I purchased my first Hustler on Monday. I bought the Fastrak 18/44 and I must say that the performance of this mower is unbelievable for the price. There is an old saying that you get what you pay for....well in this case its what you pay for times 2. My hats off to Hustler for supplying a residential mower that is essentially a cormercial unit at a good price. The Honda engine sounds so smooth you can tell its hardly working. I cut 1 acre and I expect to get 20 years of service from this jewel. Its so fun to cut on. I never thought I would ever wait for the grass to grow, but here I am praying for rain.
