Thank all of you for the excellent information and advice - especially the comprehensive discussion provided by the moderator. Based on all of that input - plus a few field trials - I ordered a Hustler Mini Z this afternoon [24 Honda/52" Deck] from the Hustler Dealer in New Hope, PA. The unit was on the floor, but I added Flex Forks, Hitch and suspension seat [the farm lawns in northern Bucks county are extremely bumpy]. I expect the machine to be delivered within a week +/-. Thanks again for your advice and assistance.
