A couple of days ago a buddy and I were headed to the JD dealer and across the street is a mower shop that deals (I thought) Snapper, and a few other brands. Out in front of the mower shop is sitting this huge ZTR in yellow, and a few other ZTR I had never seen. After a futile discussion with the JD man (new owners took over that day) concerning pricing on a 737 or a 777, we headed over to the mower shop. The huge ZTR was a Hustler diesel and there was also a Fastrack and a Mini Fastrack. After a long discussion and a short test drive of the mini, we left with literature and a buring desire to consider a couple of Hustlers. Now the question is this: I am leaning towards either the Super Mini Z 52 inch or the Hustler Z or the Hustler Z XR7. I cut three acres of ex cow pasture land, and I know this is over kill, but after 25 years of cutting it with various lawntractors and taking hours and hours of my time (life), I just want to finish it a lot guicker and have time for other more enjoyable things. Now the land I mow is ex cow pasture that is irrigated by sprinkler, (unlimited supply of free water). I only fertilized once in 25 years because it grew so fast I could not keep up. I am past the point of scalping any spots cause in 25 year you wear them all down but there are about 50 trees on the land with 6 or more feet between them. What mower will get me done quicker with the least amount of trim work, or is it a tossup? Should I get the Honda motors or are the Kawas as good? Is the XR-7 deack worth it or is the regular deck going to do a decent enough job. The mini Super Z seems to be very popular but the short wheelbase worries me. Is it an advantage over rough ground or a disadvantage? I would like to fertilize and water more, and still only have to cut once every 7 days or so. I live in central Wyoming at 6000 ft, and it is bone dry and sunny from May through Sept.The grass is whatever grows in a Wyoming ex cow pasture and it is (with a lot of water) thick and green. Any opinions would be appreciated. I read all 97 pages of posts on Hustler's and that is how I gave up ( maybe depending upon price) the JD 737 or 777 (massive overkill) idea. Lastly can I expect to knock about 20% off the list prices or I am just killing all the dealers profit. I do want him to make enough money to stay in buisness but price is of concern. Should I add a mulch kit on any of this possible machines?
