Hello everyone, new member here. I am at a crossroads as far as my next piece of equipment. For the last 12+ years i have used a craftsman 15.5 hp kohler 42" riding mower on the 3 properties i have lived during that time. All have had 3 to 5 acres with my home now having 4. The craftsman is still moving forward (that's all it will do) and will cut if you have the patience but it is about had it. As far as mowing is concerned everything tells me to go with a hustler. Last summer i went to a dealer and checked one out and was very impressed. Also a couple of friends at work have one for there homes and they love there's. While there is no doubt that the hustler would be a giant upgrade in mowing performance over what i've been using, i also core ariate, water, spray weed killer and fertilize my centipede to have the best looking yard in the neighborhood. And you never know when the wife wants that #*^! garden again. With that in mind, i think maybe i need a high end lawn tractor because it may be more versital. But when it comes down to it which ever one i choose mowing the grass is what it will be doing 90% of the time. What is the towing capacity on the hustlers because whlile i like the finished results, my yard work does take up a lot of my time and i would like to speed things up without sacrificing quality.
