Hi guys sorry if this has been posted before i tried to look thru prev post before posting. I am sexton of a 40 acre cemetery and currently use a 2003 gravely 260 monster z and a 2001 260z. I have used gravely for the last 15 years and have been ver y satisfied with performance and maintance etc. I have looked at scag kubota john deer exmark etc. and have never seen any i acutally wanted to demo. Well this just changed I have a new dealer as my old went out of buisness and he carries hustlers as well as gravley. So the super Z xr7 caught my eye and ralph gave me a good product speel and I asked him to demo one in my cemetery. all I can say is wow! I am seriously considering buying this hustler. My question is not which is better I know that verys with the person. what I would like to know is track records for maintance on the hustler. now let me tell you I take very good care of my stuff. I cahnge oil and filter at 25 hrs which is 1/2 the recomended time every time. my pop off valve for air cleaner has never moved because I replacce regular. in 15 years with gravley I have had no real down time. I buy new mower every 5 years and give mine to another dept so my original pro master 300 is still in use at the street dept today. If I keep to my strict preventive maintance schedule can i expect the same performance out of the huslter? Thank you in advance for any input you may be able to give me Grave A grave digger will be the last person in the world to "let you down"
