Raptor® Flip-Up Reviews

Raptor Flip-Up is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy While expensive for a personal use mower residentially, it has really helped keep my lawn in good shape. I no long dread cutting the lawn and so it happens more frequently. More frequent cutting prevents grass clumps and thatch build up thus promoting a healthier lawn. Two issues: 1- the use timer runs even while the engine is not on. So if you leave the key in the ‘on’ position. The time will continue to run and result in an inaccurate gauge of use 2 - I’m unable to use several deck heights because the deck is shifted too far over to use the drop pin. Contacted the dealer and they said they will correct the issue but will not cover the transportation of the mower so haven’t been able to get the mower there to fix yet

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very well made product I purchased this mower specifically for the ability to flip the deck up to easily clean without removing it or crawling under it. For this feature it gets an A+ ! The seat itself is comfortable, and I like the automatic choke feature and fuel gauge. I really like the fact that it is made out of heavier gauge steel than most mowers in this class. As far as negatives rides very rough, and the fact that the steering levers do not return to neutral automatically is still taking some getting used to. Because of the flip-up capability....there is a lot of loud rattling due to all the linkages involved. Overall I like the mower....but would really like it more if there was some type of suspension built in somewhere without having to pay out extra money for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I enjoy mowing! Bought the flip up this spring and it did a beautiful all summer. I am disabled so I have to be placed in the seat but then it is a joy to mow. The flip up deck makes it easier for my wife and kids to help with the maintenance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect. The flip up is a thing of beauty if you don't like getting on the ground to change blades. It is a compact comfortable machine. Had some deck level issues and believe my dealer figured it out. On the 48" there is only two scalp wheels on the front of the deck. can be a problem on the discharge side. I am fabricating a bracket to hold the third scalp wheel like it should have had. I can see why they did not put it on because space is limited on the 48" for one. I put a mulch kit on and it does a great job mulching but does increase the noise factor quite a bit. had problem with the lever safety switches that would come out of adjustment. The bolts that you loosen to adjust are hard to get at because they are on the bottom side of the switch. I turned them around and it is a lot easier now.

My father in law has a 54&quot; Raptor w/tilt deck and electric lift feature. I believe it is in it 3rd year and this weekend I noticed that the lift takes much longer to raise to the deck than previous times. Down seems fine. Any clues if why?

Will the engine guard from my 54&rdquo; fastrak fit a 54&rdquo; raptor flip Up?

Asked by: Bogeyman
Unfortunately, no. The 54&rdquo; Raptor Flip-Up has a different frame than the 54&rdquo; FasTrak, so the engine guard would not work on that model.

Are there wider front tires for my 2016 54&quot; Flip Up? The tires on my Hustler are smaller then the tires were on my Toro 50&quot;. The Hustler leaves deep tire tracks. Love the Hustler otherwise. Would the Flex Tire/Wheels help eliminate the tire tracks?

Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for your question! We do not offer a wider wheel and tire for the Raptor Flip-Up. Unfortunately, Flex Forks would not help this particular issue.
