    I'm thinking about buying the hustler raptor 52". It has a 23 hp kawi and a welded deck. Just had a question; Will it mow in reverse?

    I blow off my sidewalks of the clipping going backwards. I'm thinking you feared it was like some models that turn the blades off when in reverse. No worries with the Raptor.

    Do you have it? If so, how do you like it?

    I was looking at one but ended up with a fastrak superduty. If it wasn't for the fact of the size and amount of lawns I have I would be all over it. I really couldn't tell the difference in the controls between it and the $6500.00 machines. I've found the lower priced units get a little squirrelly in the controls, not so with the Raptor.
