I am comtemplating selling my 60" SuperZ. If I remember correctly it has between fifty and seventy hours on it. It was purchased in the last part of 2002. If I opt to sell, what would be a good price for it.

I'm not sure about the price you should sell it for, but am very interested to know why you are selling it. Are you not satisfied with its performance?

What size engine does it have?

I would think that it is worth between $6000 and $7000.

I am not happy with its performance. It does a good job when you do not have very thick grass, otherwise it bunches up. If you look at their shute, you will see that it is much narrower than Toro;, Exmark;Skag; and Gravely. I tested an Exmark, after buying this(my mistake) and I was able to do three forths of an acre in about twelve minutes less time. I even have one yard that I mow each week and the bermuda is so thick in parts that I have to take a blower and blow some of the grass into the ground. This statement may seem to be incorrect, but is true.

I can't say for sure, but I think there may be some differences in turf between our areas. Before you give up on the machine, try running double high lifts. I get about 15 to 20 feet of clipping discharge using this method. Never a problem with clumping ect.

I'm with metro lawn on this one. I don't have any cut quality issues, but I have been running doubles since late spring for the super blower effect.

this is definitely not the first time I've heard this "complaint" about Hustler decks.

I still say the hype about mowing speeds over 10mph is just that, hype, unless you're in low grade mowing situations or cutting off the tips.
