“There are so many features I can list about how great of a product Hustler has put into a small budget zero-turn mower. I love the quality of the cut the Raptor puts on my grass, and how evenly it throws it out. The smoothness of the levers has you moving with just a simple touch. The Kawasaki engine is quiet, even at high rpms, it runs smooth and it is easy to change the oil. Another quality that I like that I didn’t find on other zero-turn mowers is the fabricated deck, verses others with molded decks. I wanted a machine that would last long and be durable to what I put it through. You can tell Hustler took their time in designing this mower. I give the Raptor a 10 out of 10 and would recommend it to anyone looking for a zero-turn mower on a low budget.”
“Even after three weeks of growth, The Raptor easily cut through the toughest, tallest grass at three quarter throttle. The result was a perfectly even cut as good as mowers costing thousands of dollars more. The Kawasaki engine has more than enough power and is surprisingly quiet, even at full throttle. I am very pleased with my Raptor and highly recommend Hustler products to anyone looking for a mower to fit any budget. The Raptor definitely lives up to the hype! My next mower will definitely be another Hustler.”
