“Hustler. From a price point of buying these machines new, the Hustler brand tends to be cheaper than comparable models but they don’t lack the quality. Currently, we’re running two Hustler X-ONEs with 26-hp Kawasaki engines and 60-in. decks, and I also have a Hustler TrimStar walk-behind with a 17-hp Kawasaki and a 48-in. deck. The product has far exceeded my expectations.”

“We use Walker mowers because they improve our efficiency with their handling and maneuverability, and they produce the highest quality cut. We purchase the diesel model for longer life and better fuel economy. We use 48-in. bagging decks on most of our properties and 74-in. discharge decks on a large 30-acre estate. We also use the bed edging attachment to cut beautiful edges on landscape beds very quickly.”

Heads Up Landscape Contractors added John Deere stand-on mowers with propane conversions in 2013 and 2014.

“The opportunity to use propane mowers was attractive, especially with the rebates available in 2013/2014. We worked with John Deere to arrange financing to purchase 10 QuikTrak 648R stand-on mowers and installed propane conversion kits on eight of them. Once everyone had the opportunity to use them, everybody wanted them (over the ride-ons). As a result, we purchased 10 more.”
