Residential Hustler 2021 Zero Turn Mowers
Hustler has redesigned the Raptor Series mowers from the ground up for this year. The residential line now packs better performance and more features into the new and improved Raptors to deliver a smooth ride and clean finish.
Since the Hustler Raptors already had great motors and solid transmissions, the brand set out to ramp up the durability of the construction and the comfortability of the mowing experience. Hustler also set out to increase the feature set on these premium residential models.
Now, the Raptor X, XL, XD, and XDX include 1.5″ x 3″ one-piece tubular frames and a new deck lift system with four-point leveling. BigBite rear tires provide superior traction. You can remove the floor pan easily for maintenance, while the mowers all feature vented pulley covers.
The Raptor X zero turn mowers feature a 4.5″ deep deck, Hydro-Gear ZT-2200 transmissions, and 18-inch BigBite rear tires. They come in 42″ and 54″ cutting decks, offering the choice between the 18 horsepower Kawasaki FR600 engine and the 21.5 horsepower FR651 engine, respectively. Both move at a top speed of 7 mph.
The Hustler Raptor XL also comes with 42″ and 54″ cutting deck options. Here, the 42″ deck comes with a Kawasaki FR651 engine, while the 54″ features a Kawasaki FR691 engine with 23 horsepower. This mower has been updated with standard flex forks and a high-back premium bolstered seat for operator comfort.
The Raptor XD, which comes in 42″, 48″, 54″, and 60″ decks, can move at a top speed of 7.5 mph. It also includes the upgraded high-back seat, as well as 20″ rear Bigbite tires and Hydro-Gear ZT-2800 transmissions.
Finally, the Raptor XDX joins the Hustler 2021 zero turn mower lineup as the top of the Raptor residential series. This model features Kawasaki FR engines with up to 24 hp, as well as Hydro-Gear ZT-3100 transmissions and 22″ rear BigBite tires. It also comes with a 48″, 54″, or 60″ cutting deck option, all of which feature 5″ depths. It even features cast steel deck hangers for the optional powered catcher as well as removable pulley covers for easy maintenance.
All of the mowers in the Hustler 2021 Raptor Zero Turn lineup come with a 3-year, 300-hour warranty.

The 2021 Hustler zero turn lineup also includes the upgraded Super S stand-on mower. It now features a Kawasaki FX850 EFI engine option and upgraded controls and user features. Yet it still remains compact enough to go where other machines can’t.
The Super S features the VX Deck, a fabricated 7 ga. steel deck engineered for extreme suction for better performance and cut quality.
The 2021 Hustler Super S Zero Turn Mower also features an ergonomically-designed control tower. The streamlined and comfortable controls cause less fatigue, while the adjustable spring-loaded suspension foot platform provides all-day comfort as well.

The 2021 Hustler X-One Zero Turn Mower sees three major upgrades to provide the commercial landscaper with all-day performance.

Finally, Hustler has also upgraded the torque with Parker unitized 12cc/rev pumps.
