I was picking up some trimmer line at one Dealer I frequent today, they sell Hustler, grasshopper, Walker. I have been kinda looking over the Hustler Super Z XR-7 30hp kohler 66" deck $ 11,199. The Hustler is "growing" on me each time I vist, until I looked under the deck today. I was impressed at the design, thickness & quality of the deck. Expect I noticed the grease zerk for the spindle's is on the underside of the deck WTF that cannot be easy to grease anytime period, now my infactuation has worn off. Their is no perfect mower, you give up certain features with a company, to gain a feature on another companies ZTR, and in the end, you still don't have all the best features, only a compromise. This is why it takes me at least 1 year to purchase a ZTR.
