Raptor® Reviews

Raptor is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 121.
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.

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.

On my Raptor 52; having trouble taking the blade bolts off, before I use a very serious breaker bar, are the threads LH or RH. I have encountered both on other mowers. Thanks.

Asked by: Duh?
Hi Texas. Raptor mowers are RH bolts. Don't forget to check your service manual for the correct torque - Blade Spindle top bolt is 60 ft/lbs and the Blade Spindle bottom bolt is 48 ft /lbs. If you do not have a copy of your service manual, you can find a copy at hustlerturf.com / support/ manuals.

Does the rear, where the engine is located, have that bumper that says Hustler come on the Raptor? I see some of the pictures and some have it and some don&rsquo;t, just would like to know.&nbsp;

Asked by: Penguino95
Dear Anonymous. We have made various improvements to the Raptor line of mowers over the years and adding a rear engine guard is one of them. Older mowers may not have them, but they are available to purchase as an accessory.

Are there any reasons NOT to put tire chains on my new Hustler Raptor? It is a recent replacement for my old JD lawn tractor. I totally love it BUT.. there are areas that are chronically very wet and I'm getting stuck big time.

Asked by: Hard Wood Farm
You would not hurt the mower by putting chains on your unit, but we cannot recommend any equipment other than OEM.

Paper work says go on line to this web site to register the mower.. How, this web site does not have a way to register. ???

Asked by: Tommy
Hi Tommy. When you are on the Hustlerturf website, look to the top, click on Support and one of the drop downs is for the Raptor Warranty Registration. This is only for mowers purchased at Lowes or one of the other big box stores. If you purchased your mower from a dealership - they will register your mower for you. If you need help, call our Customer Care line 1-844-594-2448 and we will be glad to assist.
