Raptor® Reviews

Raptor is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 132.
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 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 Fantastic Mower! I have had my Hustler Raptor 52" mower for 3 mowing seasons, now going into the 4th. I just started it up last weekend for my spring mower maintenance after it had been sitting in the shed for 4 months during an extremely cold Midwest winter. It cranked a little longer than normal (normally it will fire right up) but after about 3 seconds it roared to life. Kohler makes a great engine! This mower has been fantastic and has cut the mowing time of my 1 1/2 acre yard in half. Scheduled maintenance is a breeze and the dependability is top notch. I recommended this mower to a friend of mine after I had mine a few months and he loves his new Raptor mower as well.

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.

My Raptor SD has 64 hours on it and a hydro pump belt snapped, what can cause the belt to have a (clean cut) failure?

Asked by: Dade
Hi Dade. There could be a few reasons, that is why we always suggest you take your mower in to your local dealer and have them take a look. They are the best at advising you of the next steps.

Lost my owners manual..Bought my first Hustler mower about 2 months ago and now doing my first oil change. 2.6 quarts or 83 ounces right? It reads way past the full line so drained about 20 ounces before reading perfect. What am I doing wrong?

Asked by: Handyandynotfeelinghandy
Hi Handy. It is common for the oil to look a bit full, run your engine and then check the oil again.
