Raptor® Reviews

Raptor is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 116.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mower I've had the 52" RAPTOR for a little more than a year now and love it. Added the mulching kit from the dealer and a pair of LED lights from Amazon. This mower cut my mowing time in half. I only have two complaints. The foot deck, having holes in it, lets a lot of grass and dirt swirl around your legs and in your face. Secondly, having a little concern about the Koehler engine. If it sits for 2 or 3 weeks, it's a little hard to start and it's not my gas. None of my other small engines have an issue with my gas, even sitting longer, so not sure what's going on. Wish they'd kept the Kawasaki engine. Hence the reason for only 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine! I bought this In April 2017 just before my first cut of the spring. I was very satisfied after its first use. After two uses I adapted to the controls and it saved alot of time compared to using a normal riding mower. I used this machine throughout the summer and had no mechanical issues with it after 25 hours of use. It is a great peice of equipment! Just make sure you keep the front wheel bearings greased because they do push out the grease after just a few uses. This is normal though because they are basically free floating. I have the 42” deck and it is perfect for my 1 acre property. I would recommend this to anyone with a lawn big enough for a zero turn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST MOWER I'VE EVER OWNED i just purchased this mower a week ago from my local Lowes. And i'm pretty sure i'm hooked now. I've had craftsmen, cub cadet, and a snapper. Granted none of them were a zero turn. But they were still a riding mower. This is by far the BEST i've had. Got it first thing in the morning. Cut my grass in less than an hour. Enjoyed it so much, I went cut my neighbors yard, then went to my mother-in-laws to cut hers. And made it back home for lunch... Super impressed. I would recommend this FANTASTIC machine to any and everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid construction and great cut I bought my Hustler Raptor 52 Limited with the Excel 2 bag catcher a year ago this past fall. It does an excellent job mowing with very level cuts. It is both fun to operate and greatly reduces my mowing time. I especially like the solid construction of the manufactured deck. Maintenance of the Kholer engine is straight forward and easy. I am amazed at how well the bagger works in spite of the fact that it is not powered. The bagger installs easily, but I wish Excel would design a more substantial connection of the chute to the deck. Overall, I love my Hustler. It is a great value and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in a zero turn mower

When will a stripe kits be ready for the raptor 42 inch

Asked by: Anonymous
I am sorry - we do not have strip kit for a 42&quot; Raptor. We do have a strip kit for our 42&quot; Dash - but they are not interchangeable.

any easy way to reattach the belt that has come loose

Asked by: duckman
Duckman, you can replace any of the belts, there is a diagram on the deck of the raptors that will lead you through the correct configuration. However, we need to determine why your belt came off, or is loose. This is not normal and will continue to cause you problems until it is resolved. Please visit your local dealer and work with them to find out why your belt is loose.

How well does the double bag grass catcher work? I seen that style on an other brands and it just clogged in the chute.

Asked by: Dave D
Hi Dave. The trick to getting the best experience with the baggers is to cut slowly and cut only 1/3&quot; of the dry grass per mowing. If you still struggle, we sell high lift blades they produce more air flow and can assist the grass up the chute. Remember, these baggers do not &quot;vacuum&quot; the grass, it is blown up the chute.

Is there any difference in a mower purchased from Lowes compared to a dealer?

Asked by: bigboy
Great question. The short answer is no. The mowers are made to the exact same specifications, at the same plant, on the same production line. The only difference is the after care of the product. Lowes uses service centers to service our mowers for warranty work. They do a find job, but the process usually takes a little longer as they only move mowers from the centers to the stores on a weekly basis. On the other hand, when you purchase from a Authorized Hustler dealer - you will be working with them directly.

Asked by: dcbcmc
We do not put ROPs (roll over protection) bars on residential mowers except for the Fastrak - which is considered a step up to our commercial line.
