    “I bought a Hustler Raptor SD would like to share my initial opinion. This is not my first zero-turn as it replaces another zero-turn mower that I managed to wear out. I decided to go with Hustler after doing a lot of research and reading many reviews, all of which were positive. I happened along a video of someone reviewing their new Hustler Raptor SD. I love this machine. It cuts beautifully. It cuts fast while still maintaining a great cut. The Raptor SD holds up great while cutting my hill and my ditch. I also noticed that it glides over the muskrat holes around the pond with ease. I love the smooth running Kawasaki engine and love the fact that the Hustler is made in the USA. I have cut some really heavy ungroomed field area just to see how it would do, and it did great! Long story short, I have been recommending Hustler to everyone I know. Thank you for making a high quality product right here in the USA. Keep up the good work.”

    “As this is my first foray into the ZTR market, I did a TON of research on nearly every brand and model of zero-turn that I could. I demo’d nearly a dozen different mowers. My local dealer brought out a 60” Raptor SD…I WAS SOLD! Every thing about this mower was a notch up from every other mower I’d tried, most of which cost several hundred dollars more. Better deck construction, heavier gauge frame, upgraded transmission, higher tip speed…the list goes on and on. I purchased the Raptor SD 54” and am looking forward to MANY seasons of trouble-free mowing and continued jealous stares from my neighbors!”

    – M. Sudrovech III, Oxford, MI

    “I bought my Raptor SD to replace my 50+ year old Ford Tractor and mowing attachment. The Raptor far exceeded my expectations. I have 5 acres plus a 2500′ grass runway to maintain. The Raptor cuts mowing time in half! My fuel costs have also been reduced not to mention the outstanding comfort. Did I mention it is fast…Highly recommended!”
