Hi, Ive been looking at mowers for a few months now. And had at first steered away from ZTR's becuse they jsut couldnt take hills and i was looking at walkbehinds. At my state fair this weekend I stoped by the mowers and saw hustler which was a brand I had never really looked into I looked at there walkbehinds and was actauly alowed to test one out rigth there on site at the state fair! Then when I was about to leave they asked me why I was interested in the walkbehinds and I told them about hills and such. He told me he wanted me to try out some of the mini z's and said that they could handle hills so i did. And wow i was impressed the hill probly wasnt to steep of a grade maybe 10-15 deggres but it felt like i was mowing flat ground! So after looking into them and the state fair deal priceing I decided to demo one out. Hopefully I will be demoing it sometime this week for a couple days! the one thing I am worried about is that everyone is saying northern grass's give the blades cutting problems. I live in minnesota and the grass grows preety thick around here. but im also worried about 19hp for a 52 inch deck. I mean im not sure if it will be able to take tall grass. But at the same time im getting the mower for a very good deal so if it works i would love to own a hustler. Any thing people know about the hustlers this size or problem i might have or this i should get please post! thanks.
