Mower Review: Hustler Raptor 42in deck

by George Wheeler
(7867 Raymary st, Bokeelia fl 33922)

I purchased this mower strictly because it was american made and with the belief that it would be high quality and found that this was not true and I was mislead to the quality and assembly of this product. After about five or six months while cutting my grass the assembly that holds the deck for raising and lowering of the deck completely apart leaving the deck to fall to the ground.


Later, about three or four weeks I tried to engage the PTO and found that the spindle for one of the blades had completely locked up. Not only did this happen to me but the same thing happened to a friend that I had told that it was a good mower and now his is in for the same problem for the second time. I was so disappointed in the assembly and the quality of the bearings of the spindle that I gave the mower away and purchased a Bad-Boy mower.

I can not see ever purchasing another hustler when a sales rep had said to get rid of the mower because of poor quality. Get your act together Hustler or your going to go bankrupt in time. ABOUT A 3000 DOLLAR LOSS FOR ME. THANKS HUSTLER!!!!!!!
