Hustler Raptor flip up 2016 Mower Review

by Robert Talarico
(Moose Lake MN)

I now have 20 hours on my new lawnmower, it has been to the shop at least 3 times for problems and the service tech has been to my home 3 time for problems where I could not start or move the mower.


Needless to say I am extremely disappointed with this product and I am also very worried about what I will have to do after warranty ends. My payments will continue for a year after warranty ends.

Worst mower ever NEW
by: Gaskill

Since the last post we took the mower back to our local dealer to be fixed to the point that they finally told us we would have to take it back to where we purchased it from and it's still under warranty. Crazy! We have been back to them numerous times and they have even went above and beyond to try and make this right. After our sixth return to them to fix it they finally got the manufacturer to meet with them about it. They are replacing the deck and said if it has issues after that then they will replace the mower??? Not sure about starting over with this mower. Hope with get a different choice. We did not purchase another mower yet so we'll see what happens. Good luck to all.

horrible NEW
by: Anonymous

delivered. blades would not engage. service man comes out. wires not even hooked up under panel.
When mowing, makes metallic clacking sound. Sounds like a piece of junk and I'm wearing hearing protection. Then mow 4 hours and belts fall off. belt "wheel"
sitting on top of deck. center completely sheared off and washer broken in half. Dealer picks up.
I am done. I don't feel safe on this mower. 2016 model. inspection sheet shows only flip up function inspected. I'm sad. I feel sorry for the dealer who is a very nice person.

Worst Mower Ever NEW
by: Gaskill

Glad to know we are not the only ones who have had the awful experience with this mower. We have owned it less than a year and it has been in the shop nine plus times after throwing the belt. We got all the excuses for this happening, until they ran out of excuses. Now the dealer in our area cannot ever truly fix it and they have no excuse and agree that the manufacturer should make this right, but if you are dreaming for that to happen then your nightmare is just beginning. Our mower is paid in full and the dealer says they won't even take them on trade. Imagine that!! My husband said he will purchase a Bad boy and suck up this major loss. Shame on you Raptor Manufacturer, but I will post on every site I can to make sure no one else else makes the same mistake. Raptor 54" flip zero turn mower is the worst Mower ever!!!!

Disappointed NEW

I have had my Hustler Raptor flip-up deck mower for just over a year. It has been in the shop 3 or 4 times. The drive belt has thrown off or broken. At this point--not real happy with it.
