    Does anyone have a swb 54'' with an added flex-deck? How is the cut? Is the 25hp enough for the 54'' + flexdeck? thanks
    PS- Brad feel free to awnser:p

    I got a 15 hp 36" with flex deck, if I can get the darn scanner to work, I'll post pictures of the beast.

    Yes I think you will be fine on power.

    jsaunders - 25 hp is plenty
    2. the hustler needs no deck cutting as it is round and has no dead space on the left front corner
    3 have one on a hustler -here is a pic

    Thanks Brad, I'm looking for a larger w/b than my 52'' ferris. That leaves exmark, ferris, and scag. I'm also trying to get away from 'pistol grips' My hands are sore after a long day on the ferris. Now the flex deck is 18'' right? how long does it take to put it into transport mode because I don't think it will fit on my trailer with it down.
    I'm just looking to be more efficient and get home quicker and still get a good cut/look. Joel

    Brad could you post some pic's of the cut using the Hustler? I'm thinking one of those might be great for my 54'' SWB. also in the transport mode if you have them. Thank you!!

    It takes 10 sec to put in transport. WE run 5 flex decks and what a saving in time.
