Introducing the new Hustler Z ­ the Z-rider with the toughest frame, deck, spindles, and caster wheels in the industry. The Hustler Z also features an integral park-brake system incorporated into the steering system. When the steering levers are in the off (folded out) position the automotive-style drum brakes are automatically engaged. A foot-operated, spring-assisted deck-lift system makes trailering and cutting height changes simple. At 75²
in length, the Hustler Z is the most compact unit in the 60-inch market. Seat height of 29² is the lowest in the industry. Wide stance, low center of gravity and outstanding machine balance makes the Hustler Z the king of slope mowing. The 23 hp, Kawasaki engine powers a 60² deck that produces a beautiful cut and finished appearance. An optional Mulching Kit is available. http://www.excelhustler.com

Hello Everybody:

During the Holidays, LOL everyday is a Holiday for me. I was talking to my Nephew who lives on the Florida Panhandle & he was telling me that His Company runs nothing but Hustler.

All he could talk about is how durable these machines are. They had tried out a lot of different Z mowers & the Hustler was the only one they liked & they have been running them for a while & no complaints at all.

They cut a lot of Condos & Subdivisons!

Also one of my Mechanics back years ago worked for a Cemetery for about 6 years & he said basically the same about them. He said it was the only mower they could find that could hold up to the harsh working conditions that they run across in cemetery grounds maintenance.

This paticular Cemetery during the summer has over 30 grounds maintenance workers full time & more.

It's got my vote for being a Killer Machine & Excellent Money Maker!
That's a Fact Jack.!

I am the Hustler territory rep in your area, I work with the dealer in your area.
From your profile I see your in Brunswick Ohio.
Your Hustler dealer is about 15 to 20 minutes from you.
take 303 out of Brunswick to 271 north to exit 19, take a right and then your first left, that is Freeway drive, take it almost a mile or so and your dealer is on your right.
there name is Baker Vehicle, they have been a Hustler dealer for many years.
I was just there yesterday, and they have had a chance to use this unit, and have some on order.
call and ask for Ron, Rick, or Harland, and they will treat you right.
I have a demo unit you can check out, just ask the guys at Baker, and they will arrange it.
If you have any questions just ask.
see ya later.

If the Hustler Z is built anything like the Hustler Hydro Walkbehind then Hustler has a real winner on it's hands. Hustler is my first choice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

unit is built stronger that any mower I have seen or used, in this size unit.
the deck is the same design as the walk behind deck, just larger.
call your local dealer and ask them to demo a unit for you.
I think you will be very impressed.

That's the problem. They make some great products, but their dealership network is weak.

I demoed one some years back and was going to buy it because I was SO impressed. But i wasn't going to buy it from the hodgepodge dealer who was nearest to me (25 miles away, and no other dealer anywhere)

Guys like to buy where they can get service.
