Hustler Riding Mowers
Hustler riding mowers trace their beginnings back to a 1963 farm and agricultural equipment company employee John Reiger, who realised how swather technology could be used for lawn mowers. He invented the zero turn mower and sold the patent to Hesston (presently Excel Industries and the parent company of Hustler Turf). Today, Hustler Turf Equipment not only sells zero-turns, but also stand-ons, walk-behinds, side-by-sides and other lawn equipment and lawn accessories.
Hustler Zero Turn Mowers vs. Garden Lawn Tractors
From the name itself, zero turn mowers have a zero degree turning radius, while garden lawn tractors have a turning radius between 15 to 30 degrees. In terms of steering design, lawn tractors use their front wheels, while zero turns use their rear wheels. When it comes to their engine, zero turn mowers typically have a twin cylinder engines with a mowing speed of up to 25 mph. Standard lawn tractors, on the other hand, have single cylinder engines with speeds of 3-4 mph.
Should You Get a Hustler Zero Turn Mower?
Because of the nature of their turning radius, zero turn mowers allow for efficient manoeuvrability that saves you time and money. Not only do they eliminate the need for you to take multiple passes over already mowed grass, they are also faster than standard tractors in terms of miles per hour. Better yet, they are also easier to drive and gives your lawn the look of being mowed professionally.
What Are the Features of Hustler Zero Turn Mowers?
Hustler zero turn mowers have Smoothtrak Twin-Lever steering, allowing you to turn smoothly and get around obstacles with precision. As for braking, this riding mower also comes with patented parking brakes that stops the mower from moving as soon as you disengage the steering levers. More than this, the Hustlers also have a lower centre of gravity, making the lawn mower more stable, along with a heavy-duty fabricated steel deck.
