    i am just starting out and i have a 2008 hustler z 60 deck and for the lawns i am doing it great for some but to big for others. I am doing some 1 acre and then some small single fam homes in south Florida and the smaller yards have a lot of change in them so its either leaves a few grass blades behind or it scalps. need ur help on whether to go to a 48 Z4 Hustler that being a shorter deck but would i be lacking in the guts and beefier machine or step up to the Hustler 54 super Z which has bigger pumps and the whole bit but it being only 6 inches smaller than the mower i am trying to get rid of not a big enough decrease in deck. Or do i go with the "new Exmark" with there new pump system and the whole bite it would be a 48 or 52 lazer Z or do i go dixie classic 50 .... all said and done i am leaning toward the 48 Z4 hustler but don't want to be throwing money away. let hear for yall :usflag:

    I probably wouldn't go with a Z4, but I'd definately go with the Hustler brand. Have you taken a look at the FasTrak Super Duty? They are very nice mowers IMO. And, the now come standard with ROPS (if that makes any difference to you).

    I would personally suggest the Exmark, but that's just my preference.

    So i think i have knocked it down to the hustler 54 super z or the "next" or NEW Exmark 52 ... this is where i need your opinion on the next or new exmark over the 54 super z as far as guts and glory and pumps and trany..... also jumping from a 60 deck to a 54 do u think that is enough down size to get a better cut on my smaller yards ( cause the guy who used to cut my moms had a 50 dixie a cuts great straight and flat and smooth but when i am doing it with the 60 its scalping and a little wavy) so once again thanks for your help and opinion and if yall could help me with comparing the guts on them would be great to help me make a better decision for the long run.
