    Simplicity in design...
    And of course having the right dampeners.

    so alot of it is in the AVM dampeners? Aren't they bi-directional?

    Hmm...some of it must be in the steel hydraulic lines. Steel doesn't stretch like traditional hose when a load is placed on it... :weightlifter:

    It's a secret Hustler is hoping no one will figure out. A friend of mine is a Gravely rep and I told him I had to buy a Hustler partly because of the smoothness of the controls. He told me that Gravely is trying to figure it out.

    Some of it may also be in the operator position. You're sitting like a foot lower than most other mowers.
