Worth the money
I debated spending the extra $ for a zero turn mower, for too long and the grass got very long & wet, the Hustler didn't care, it turned long wet grass into lawn effortlessly. It takes a while to get the hang of steering especially on a sloping block like mine. It's tricky when the ground/grass is wet and the wheels loose traction, suddenly no brakes and no steering, not for the faint hearted. Tyres need more grip, nobby tyres would be a good investment. On the flat it's hard to beat, fantastic maneuverability in and around trees. Finish on the...lawn is very even, visibility because of the seat position is excellent. With practice I'll get mowing straight lines and close to edges better. Ran out of seat adjustment, I have long legs and would like to be able get the seat back just a bit. Great machine built like a truck, feels sturdy under you and while it has traction is very nice to use. Don't believe what the salesperson says about steering on slopes, it's tricky, if you have a sloping block buy a conventional ride on.

The deck is a complete junk!!!
They had a recall out on a bolt falling out, dealer didn't fix it. Deck fell off and actually tore the cheap metal and horrible welds they used. Over 3k and refused to warranty anything. Never did fix the left/right control to get it straight. Nearly every year this junk needs deck work without ending. Just junk, two years old and scrap other than the motor, which thankfully they didn't make.
