Raptor® SD Reviews

Raptor SD is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 219.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best... ...better than all the rest! Seriously though, the Raptor SD has exceeded all of my expectations. We bought a property that had been severley neglected for years. 3.5 acres of buffalo grass and some fescue. This machine turned it into the property we'd hoped for in just a few mowings. The 54" deck is tough and durable. The mower has plenty of power and runs like a dream. The hydrostats are the smoothest I've ever operated. We are up to 24 hours on it and it hasn't missed a beat. The 0% financing was a no brainier as well. Do yourself a favor and take one for a test drive, then buy one. One note, I did add the engine guard, a necessity for the trees and bushes I have to mow around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good mower I bought this mower in August of 2016. It mows great. The only issue I have with it is the grass sticks to the underside of the deck very badly. I mow in the afternoon when the grass is very dry. If you don’t lift the mower and scrape the grass out every time you mow, after the second mowing, the grass buildup will total about 4” thick. My previous mower didn’t do this. I could mow all season and have only about 1/2” of grass buildup. The deck is very heavily built but the grass buildup is terrible. The grass “bonds” to the underside so bad that when you scrape it off with a plastic putty knife, it pulls the paint off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome machine!! I purchased my new Hustler SD a few months ago from a servicing dealer and this is my first zero turn mower experience. Wow is this thing fun! I love the Kawasaki engine (easy starting w/manuel choke). I mow my yard in half the time that it used to take on my old mower, but it's so much fun I find myself mowing it twice a week instead of once! I bought the SDX because I liked the extra wide tires it has front and rear, as well as a more comfortable seat. I also like the easy mower deck adjustment that Hustler has, easy and fast! I highly recommend the Hustler brand if you're looking for a well built fun, fast mower!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality problems I purchased a Raptor 54” machine on Aug 2, 2018. I purchased it from Lowe’s and it was delivered in two days. I checked the oil, added gas , pulled up on the choke button and the rod came completely out. I had to manualy move the choke to start the engine. I returned the mower, and was given a replacement. The first time I engaged the mower deck, the engine cut off. I tried again and smoke came from the deck. The problem was the drive belt was under the pully, and the belt was damaged. It appears the belt was never on the pully. The machine is made well but these quality problems exist. I finally purchased a 60” Raptor that works great!

I have a 2019 raptor sdx 54. It has left and right deck/pulley covers. How are these things supposed to securely attach to the deck? The threaded studs are just loosely inserted into hex shaped holes. They pull right out no matter how tight the knobs are

Asked by: Bullcreek85
Sounds like the holes might not be tapped correctly. Please take your mower to your dealer for help.

How do you change the hydraulic oil on the Raptor

Asked by: Budyzer
Budyzer, that is a pretty detailed question! The Raptor transmissions are sealed and do not require changing. However, if you have a Raptor SD, you will need to change that oil and filters.
