    There is a dealer in my area that has a new hustler sort on the lot. I have not looked at it yet and don't know what they want but want to know what I should be able to get it for.

    I am a homeowner wih 1.5 acres to mow with mild slopes and lots of fruit trees. Have looked at the raptor but wonder if his is a better deal and what I should have to give to get it. At what point do I buy the raptor

    The two units are similar with the Sport being slightly better grade. Both would do the job on 1.5 acres and would be the last mower you'll ever have to buy. One flag jumps out at me that leans me towards the Raptor. The fruit trees! With the low hanging branches the roll bar on the Sport may become an issue in getting close to the trees. Other than that either unit would do the job.
