    Hustler is supposed to be a great machine Good luck with it.
    I have run Ferris mowers for decades.

    Nice machine.


    I'm pretty sure we talked about this. A tip for anyone else don't buy your John Deere from a big box store.

    Ferris was just too much money foe a homeowner machine.


    That's what a neighbor of mine recommended.


    Also a big part of the decision is there is a hustler dealer a quarter mile down the road.

    Agree. Very expensive, but tanks. Like the suspension on their riders. Snapper is a Ferris clone. Was cheaper, but prices crept up.
    Dealer support is most important.

    Yes suspension was very important to me considering a lot of what I'll mow was pasture. I picked up some flex forks for the hustler.


    What do you run for trimmers and blower?

    That eXmark stander in the pic you quoted is very nice. You can mow while on the machine or walk behind (on slopes).
    Some standers,you can't do that, without disconnecting the dead man switch.

    Yeah I haven't seen many standers. I see lots of walkers with a sulky added. That's what we ran when I landscaped.
