    Interested in hearing from owner who have these and how they like them. What kind of lawns to you cut, commercial or residential? Anything that you dislike about them?

    Had one for 2 LONG years.

    #1 NOT ENOUGH motor for that size deck
    #2 Deck NOT deep enough. If I was cutting fescue over 2.75", I would have to double cut at the minimum.

    I think Hustler makes a good product, but the Mini-Z has it's limitations. I was not happy with the cut at all.

    Good luck.

    I know its not a 52", but it has a 19hp Kaw. Anyway, Love it...beat'em to death.

    You could get the 42" and make 3 extra passes each yard and forget about it. :laugh:
