    I am 16 and have been in lawn care for a couple years. Currently I'm using two walk behinds, 48" and a 62"with a sulky. I'm wanting two buy a new Hustler Rider (52"cut) to take the place of my 62" mower. The Fastrak seems to be a realy nice unit but I have not yet looked at a Mini Z. Would the Fastrak be ok for light commercial use or is it strictly a homeowner unit? Would it be worth it to a 16 year old to spend more money and buy the commercial Mini?

    No commercial warranty on the FasTrak.
    I would consider the Mini Z if I were in your shoes.
    The Mini Z will give you a better seat, larger tires, more HP (depending on which model you choose) and a faster blade tip speed, and a better hydro system for heavy commercial use.
    Here is the model selection with pricing in the Mini Z category for 2003 / 2004

    Hustler Mini Z, 19HP Kawasaki / 44", standard seat. 926816 $7,195
    Hustler Mini Z, 19HP Kawasaki / 52", standard seat. 926808 $7,295
    Hustler Mini Z, 23HP Kawasaki / 52", standard seat. 926832 $7,795
    Hustler Mini Z, 24HP Honda / 52", standard seat. 926824 $7,895

    And then there are Super Mini Z's (13 mph and more HP)
    Super Mini Z, 23HP Kawasaki / 44", suspension seat. 926840 $8,195
    Super Mini Z, 25HP Kawasaki / 52", suspension seat. 926873 $8,595
    Super Mini Z, 24HP Honda / 52", suspension seat. 926865 $8,495
    Of course these are MSRP, call your dealer for your best price.
