The Hustler lawn mower was compared to the other top walk behinds in the following categories...

Walk Behind Mower Cut Durability Handling Maintenance
  Quality   & Balance & Ingenuity
Bobcat Hydro B+ B+ B+ B+
Exmark Turf Tracer A B+ A A
Hustler Super WalkBehind B B+ B+ B+
John Deere Hydro-Drive A B+ B B+

Scag Hydro Walkbehind B+ A B B+

Cut: Rating B

The cut is acceptable, but not great. This is the weakest point of an otherwise great machine. Hustler reveals its new XR-7 deck this year. Hopefully, it will live up to the hype.

Durability: Rating B+

A very tough machine. Well thought out. The Super WalkBehind is a relatively new machine, so it is not as tried and true as Scag and Exmark. However, it has held up very well in commercial use.

Handling and Balance: Rating B+

The H-Bar steering system is excellent, easy to use, and takes stress off the hands and wrists. The mower handles great. Machine only fell short of a “A” due to its long length. When a mower is too long, it hinders maneuverability. It’s ironic that this walk behind is too long while their Super Z zero-turn rider is very short and nimble.

Maintenance and Ingenuity: Rating B+

A strong B+. Very well thought out design. Very little daily maintenance. Easy to work on.
