    The guy at Lowe's says it is, but I want non-salesperson confirmation. IMG_20190404_140846551.jpg

    It is classified on Hustler's website as residential.

    So yes n no?

    Hustler doesn’t really have a bottom line residential

    Yoire looking at something that’s “estate” or every level commercial

    What’s that mean?

    It’s not good for 5 years of work every day
    It might make it two

    But if you’re just mowing a few days a week
    Sure it’ll hang in there a few years.

    Other problem is they drop those lower lines like a hat pin... meaning parts support and trouble shooting is next to non existent, compared to a true commercial unit

    The fact that it’s at Lowe’s would prove it’s not commercial.

    When you say 40 hours a week, is that mower run time or 40 hrs that you're off your sofa? The manufacture stated its intended use. It's about the price of a gear/belt drive commercial walk behind mower. If you're serious about cutting lawns and don't have a ton of big lawns or anything the mower is going to take 30 minutes to cut it could last a few years. You would have a good size route and be able to upgrade.

    I started with one of those Hustler. Used it for 2 seasons before upgrading to a real commercial unit. During those 2 years I've put 500hrs on it and I didn't have any major issue. Just a few things here and there to replace. It did good and considering this was what I could afford at the time I was happy with it. You just have to be prepared to buy something new in 2-3 years, that's it.
