    “I will be entering my fourth season with my TrimStar 48-inch cut machine. Through several hundred hours of work, my Hustler TrimStar has performed with ‘zero’ breakdown issues. I am especially impressed with the strength and durability of my machine. I work the mower hard yet the frame is still nominal in profile, balanced and the power train is still at peak performance. My TrimStar has been a great investment with no repair cost to date. So I bought an X-ONE.”

    – S. McCreary

    “The performance of the Hustler TrimStar and the quality of cut is unbelievable. The H-Bar steering is so user friendly and the response is great. Best walk behind mower out there!!!”

    – J. Schlesener, Schlesener Lawn Service

    “The TrimStar’s H-Bar steering takes my new operators on a short learning curve and shortly the efficient machine is an extention of their bodies. I also appreciate that my Hustler dealer provides the best customer service I could ask for. Above and beyond every time I step in the door.”
