Raptor® SD Reviews

Raptor SD is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 201.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from All in all a nice mower! EXCELLENT MOWER!!! Two complaints. One is that it isn't as fast as advertised. I have contacted hustler and they say things like rider weight, ground condition, ground grade, etc...is figured in the max ground speed. Well I'm 6' 208 lbs and yard is flat as they come. When I ride mower down road, it as flay a a road can be. And yet mower only goes 5.9 mph. I wouldn't mow my yard as fast as mower is advertised to go, but since it only goes 5.9 mph I do sometimes. Not always. Second complaint is mower chute clogs up way too much.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weak Hydro System Ive had this mower for almost 2 years now. It has approximently 500 hours. Its performed flawlessly except for the hydro system. The bolts holding the hydros up have broken numerous times, the brackets holding the hydros have broken in half a couple of times as well and needed to be welded back together. You can always know when its broken under there because the drive belt will break and upon inspection you will see a broken bolt or bracket. Seems to me like the framing they have holding the hydros up just isnt sturdy enough. other then that its a great mower and cuts beautifully! was considering upgrading to an X-one but after the hydro issues im hesitant to go with the Hustler brand in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine! Bought a 2016 RSD 54 with Engine Guard, Stripe Kit and high lift blades. Excellent Mower for larger Residential mowing. I have 2 acres, with some slopes, Large trees and gardens this machine offers great value, excellent performance and is built tough! 100 hours on it and no issues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't own another one My hustler sd 54 has had steering issues from day one and even after taking in to the dealer it's still not right. It's not even a year old and the paint is peeling off. The grass clippings constantly clog underneath and I have to stop and clean it out before I can keep mowing. Doing any kind of service work yourself is not an easy process at all. I was very happy with this mower AT FIRST simply because it was the first zero turn mower I have had so anything was an upgrade over what I had. However, over time it has shown its warts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Mower This is the first Zero Turn mower that I have purchased. Took a little while to get use to mowing around trees, etc....But practice makes perfect and have had no accidents. Cuts my mowing time in half compared to a regular riding mower. Great machine and no maintenance issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality control issues Bought in April 2016,within a month hydraulic reservoir was empty, but no sign of leaking on garage floor. I'm just glad I purchased it from warner sales in Rome ny because they came to the house and picked up the mower and left me a mower to use while repairing mine, you won't get that kind of service from Lowes.Problem was a loose hydraulic clamp that was discovered at the factory but NOT repaired . How can a company inspect a product and document it as defective and still ship it? within 2 months the crankshaft seal failed. Once again warners came through with great customer service. If I didn't get the service that Warners Sales provides this would probably be a 2 star review. Hustler co. For some reason thinks I bought this mower at Lowes. No way I would buy something like this from Lowes when they can't handle the service end of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Raptor SD Long-Term Review Had the raptor sd 54" for 3 years now and I give it 4 stars. It has decreased my cutting time significantly over the JD lawn tractor I used previously. My only complaint is the dealer-installed mulching system and the way it spews clippings out the front of the deck covering my legs in dust every time. The underside of the deck has to be pressure washed every month because of the buildup of caked on grass. I have also had to replace the left plastic fender twice for cracking near the attachment screws. Third fender is now cracked but mower is out of warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Commercial grade mower at a residential price Bought the Raptor SD 54” with the Kawasaki, very powerful engine and clean cut. Pros: -very affordable -quality craftsmanship -easy to operate -Warranty Cons: -Had some trouble when cutting slightly damp or taller grass, as the grass exiting gap is not wide enough and as a result, grass continues to clog up. -tires slip on slightly angled ditches, nothing too steep but it somewhat struggles to hold a grip. -the lack of a gas meter: it’s hard to tell when low on fuel, wishing there was some type of meter on the machine. Overall i am a very satisfied customer. I love the power of the Kawasaki along with the maneuverability of the SD, and considering it’s a residential mower, you couldn’t tell.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Happy with mower Blades furnished with machine did not eject grass very well and it would jam up, sometimes stalling the engine. Had to buy Hi-Lift blades to solve problem, should have been furnished with them to begin with. Not at all happy with control of mower, it "snakes" and is extremely difficult to keep straight. Must continually fight controls to keep it straight. Sent machine back to Dealer and they said it was "normal". I never had this problem with other brands that I previously owned. I'LL never own another Hustler.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mows well This mower does a fine job of mowing. It would have earned an excellent rating had it not been for two issues. First, the mower deck clogs with grass clippings and needs to be cleaned after each and every use. Second, maintenance done on the mower is much more difficult than it needs to be. I have changed the hydraulic oil and changed the drive belt and both jobs were made complicated by the fact that you need to do many small jobs just to get to the job you are attempting. Some simple engineering could make maintenance a breeze but that is not the case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly Disappointed I have over 10 years of experience as a mechanic & mower on a golf course, so I have experience with multiple brands of mowing equipment. I picked the Raptor SD as a step from the average riding lawn mower. This is my personal mower, I mow a acre of property 40 times a year, this is the end of my second year. Pros: engine power, mowing quality, ease of handling, strong frame, ease of height adjustment. Cons: control handles need frequent readjustment to drive straight, paint quality, deck hard to clean, tires slip with minor resistance i.e. slightly wet, tall growth. Lastly I also purchased the bagging system. Chute plugs easily, holding straps don't keep lower chute tight to the deck. The connection of the 2 chute pieces drops if the ground is the least bit rough. The bag material isn't holding up very well for the amount of time I have had it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Machine I have 2 Raptor SD 54's one for the house (1 acre) and 1 for the farm (8 acres) They were bought is 2015. The have held up extremely well.(Approx 400 hrs each) I added stripping kits and grass flappers. They leave a very nice stripe with this attachment. So much so that the neighbors are now paying my 2 HS age boys to cut, trim and blow their lawns. They now do 20 lawns in the development and turned it into a nice little business for them. The guys at Kuhn Turf are the best as well. They treat you like family. Their little neighborhood business has grown to the point will likely upgrade to the XOne this year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality for hustler I have noting but problems with the 54in Sd. It has less than 200 hours on it. In that time I have had the left steering handle completely break off, both safety sensors have failed. And the cross brace that holds the two hydros together has snapped twice. It has been to three different authorized dealers to calibrate the steering and to this day has never mowed straight. I will never recommend this mower to anybody.
Date published: 2018-05-23
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sensor failure less than one hour I’ve put 45 minutes on this mower and it’s already in the shop. Left parking brake sensor does not work therefore mower won’t start. The well advertised parking brake feature is not very conducive to comfortable driving since the slots the arms go in do not allow flexibility in moving the arms to a comfortable spot. Got cramps in my arms and could not adequately adjust the seat and arms to alleviate the uncomfortable driving. Because of the lack of flexibility going backwards was nearly impossible. I’m going to ask the dealer if I can return this poorly designed mower. We’ll see what happens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mine I purchased mine about two years ago now. I like the speed of it. That's is a good thing that I must cut the lawn over and over to get all the uneven uncut grass I didn't get the first time. It has been sent in to have the issue's fixed. Which took a month one time then almost two month the second time. Will still not success fixing the issue. The repair shop wanted to fix other things and do maintenance. (With only less then 200 hours)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good mower but many early hour issues Purchased my 52” Raptor SD after using my parents a few times. Mows well, quick & powerful but I’ve had the following issues in 70hrs - multiple loose/lost fasteners, failed front wheel bearing, update to hydro support, & now must have the frame repaired b/c there was a weld placed in the wrong position and has cracked. If it wasn’t for my dealer I’d probably persue a replacement mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raptor xd 60" We bought this mower this spring to cut down our mowing time. It used to take my wife and I 2 1/2 hours to mow with a 38" zero turn and a 48" tractor. With just the hustler I can get it done in an hour and twenty minutes myself! Needless to say I have sold the other mowers! Great mower and VERY WELL BUILT! We also have some side hills and we love the fact that you sit low on the mower. My wife feels very safe on the side hills with the hustler.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk raptor sd 54 I brought a Raptor SD just over 3 years ago. It has never mowed well. Sometimes I have to drive over the same weed 3 times to get it to cut. The deck belt has broken twice. The deck paint is coming off and now 14 days after the warranty is up the rear end bracket breaks and the mower is sitting on the ground. It has less than 100 hours on it. I would never buy another. Check out the web plenty of issues with these mowers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mower for the money I bought the mower last summer in 2016 and price was a big selling point. Great for home use with a smooth lawn. With no suspension the ride is very rough if your going over any bumpy surfaces. The deck height adjuster pin will Also come out on bumpy surfaces causing you to scalp so I suggest getting a cotter pin to hold it in place. Overall am very pleased with the reliability and the mower overall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor performance Just over a year of having it the left side bearing went out, the thing would not move. The gas gauge quit working. The service company had it for four months brought it back, first time I used it gas gauge still doesn't work although the gas tank had been replaced, still makes a loud noise, and now it is dead in a my yard as it will not startThink I was given a lemon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hate the automatic choke! I've had this mower two years. The automatic choke has already went out. Had to take it an hour and a half away, one way to the place I purchased it. A week later I find out the authorized repair facility was less than five miles from my house. They did send a set of forks for the front end, as an apology for my trouble, that are supposedly to help the suspension, they don't.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good mower It did well during it's first season, but my only major complaint is no traction in reverse. Minor complaint: I have to wiggle the left steering handle to get engine to start.
Date published: 2017-11-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warranty Not Good I bought a Raptor SD 54" about 3 weeks ago. The only real problem I have with the mower is the steering. Hustler touts the precision steering as an attribute but to me it is too precise. Even though I am a veteran of ZTRs I find it difficult to mow along a fenceline and get close to the fence posts. The big problem I have is after reading the 3 year 300 hour warranty, It does not cover some parts that are most likely to fail if defective. The warranty excludes bearings. There are bearings in the deck spindles, deck idler sheaves, front wheels and spindles, drive belt idlers as well as multiple bearings in the two transaxles. This is not to say this is not a good mower, it just doesn't seem like Hustler is very proud of their product. I have never purchased a product like this that the warranty did not cover the bearings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mower for the price! I purchased the Hustler raptor SD 54in. I had a few small problems after I purchased it which were handled promptly by the dealer. Only regret I have is choosing the 54in over the 60in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from why did I wait? Mowing my cabin acreage with a standard lawn tractor was taking 4 1/2 hrs every time plus the trimming, leaving me no time to relax. I researched all the major brands of zero turn mowers. None offered all the features and things I wanted like welded deck and commercial grade transmissions in the price range I was willing to pay EXCEPT Hustler so I bought the SDX. WOW is all I can saw my mowing time is 1hr and 20 minuets now and mowing is actually fun again. The SDX is well built and performs like a dream and best of all made in America.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Bought a new 60”hd spring of this year. First problem I noticed was the way it discharges grass. It is bad about discharge chute stopping up and it leaves clumps of grass everywhere while mowing. With about 45 hours on machine the LR drive bolt can out and broke belt. I went and purchased a new belt and installed it myself because of turn around time to get it repaired. Now it has a little over 50hrs and the cross brace under it has broke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hustler Raptor SD My Hustler Raptor SD with the Kawasaki engine is without a doubt the finest mower I have ever owned, and I’ve owned plenty. The 60 inch deck cuts my mowing time in half. The owners at Small Engine Service Pro’s in New Carlisle, Ohio made me a great deal in September of 2015 and I’ve been a very pleased customer ever since. I love mowing with this machine so much I mow my neighbors yard too. He hasn’t mowed his yard in 2 years. Great mower! I’ll always have a Huster setting in my garage. Keep up the great work Hustler!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk I bought this mower new, 2 years ago and after dropping a lot of money, which I never thought I would do for a mower, it’s nothing but junk. When I take it to my local dealer I have to hound them to get it back in a week at best. I have had more problems out of this mower than any other mower I have owned. This is my first and last Hustler. I write this as my mower just broke down again. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER HUSTLER!!! EVER!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Deck Plugs Disappointed in the deck. It plugs very easily if grass is damp or of any height. It took several trips to dealer and many calls to manufacturer to get it fixed to a usable state. A loaner was provided while it was being worked on. I have not seen this plugging problem on other models.
Date published: 2017-11-10
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kind of Disappointed I've owned the SD 60 for two summers now. I mow a 1.5 acre yard. It takes me about 1.5 hours to mow the yard. 80 hours on the mower. It cuts nice and drives nice. Rides pretty rough. There's no roll bar, don't like that. The plastic side covers will break if you lean against them. The paint peeled off the deck in sheets the first year. Paint got worse the second year and all of the bearings in the deck are now bad at 80 hours. However Hustler is getting me a new deck. The muffler is rusted badly. I'll have to remove and paint it soon. My mower is garage kept, has never seen rain or wet grass, Just a quick water hose spray a couple times a year and a good cleaning in the spring. The transmission on the left is leaking and whines really bad. It's in the shop now. All in all for the price of the SD 60, I'm pretty disappointed in the quality of the mower. Hustler company has been very good about taking care of my problems. Now that it's out of warranty though, I'll probably sell it when I get it back from the dealer.

I HAVE A RAPTOR 42&quot; SD, THE SERVICE MANUAL OFFERS MANY BLADE OPTIONS, WHAT DOES THE CODE STAND FOR, AND WHAT STYLE COMES AS ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT.

Asked by: JOHNP
Low Lift Blade (L) -adequate for shallow decks and most consumer applications. Can be used to reduce blowout or deck packing in some conditions. Blade lift measures .79&quot;. Medium Lift Blade (M)-provides additional vacuum for consumer decks. Blade lift measures .95&quot; High Lift Blade (H)-standard blade for many deep decks. Provides more vacuum for better finished appearance. Blade lift measures 1.09&quot; Extra High Lift Blade (EHN)-provides lift required for high velocity style decks. Blade lift measures 1.20&quot; Catching Blade ( C )-generates energy required to transfer grass to bagging systems where there is no external blower. Blade lift measures 1.50&quot; Wavy Mulch Blade (MUL)-has both a positive lift on the outside of the blade and a negative lift toward the inside of the blade. This serves to agitate the grass inside the deck to bring it into more contact with the cutting surfaces and thereby reduce clipping size. While this is primarily for decks with mulching kits installed, using a wavy mulch blade in side discharge mode also reduces clipping size. Gator Mulch Blade (GAT)-has grooves cut into the blade sail to create multiple edges where the material can be recut. It can be used in catching, side discharge and mulching modes but is particularly effective in reducing the volume of dry leaves in fall cleanup. Sand Blade (S)-available only in 20.5&quot; length. The shape of the sand blade helps minimize blade wear at the radius between the flat portion of the blade and the inclined &quot;lift&quot; section. Blade lasts about two times as long as a High lift blade. The sand blade should also help with reducing deck wear in sandy conditions.

Asked by: LJ770
Hi Brandon, We're not sure what spacers you mean. There are washers on the bolts so if you are missing them then you need to get your mower to a dealer. If you have seen the upgraded seats on the the Hustler Fastrak then there are rubber shock absorbing spacers but that is an upgrade that is not available on the Raptor models.

Can a 54&quot; deck and 60&quot; deck interchange on a raptor sd? If so, any modifications necessary? Also, will it void warranty? Are warranties transferrable?

Asked by: Ozark redneck
Thanks for asking. Our decks are not interchangeable. Each deck is made for the specific mower it is designed for. We have also changed our deck design, with the open deck on the 2019 models. And yes, warranties are transferable. Your local dealer should be able to take care of that for you.

We now have the new open deck design and it comes with a adjustable premium seat with armrest. From my mowing experience, a good seat is essential. Hope this helps you.

Has any one experienced problems with the Kohler 25 HP engine?

Asked by: RCSiemers
Yes I have bought three raptors in the last 24 months I first bought a base model raptor with the Kohler and it dropped a cylinder within the first thirty days so I returned it and bought the limited I put 186 hours on the limited without a single hiccup I did have to replace all the deck pulleys but the dealer told me this was from cleaning the deck excessively and not engaging the blades when done, Wich spins the water out of the pulleys .I sold my limited because I wanted something with a more freely floating deck however I'm not complaining I wound up buying a 54&quot; Sd and have no complaints there either

I want to add a canopy to my hustler sd 54 but can't seem to find any info anywhere (it did not come with a ROPS). Suggestions? Also, I too am experiencing a problem with the grass clumping up under the mower. How the heck do you fix that?

Asked by: leondraw
Currently for the Raptor SD we do not have a canopy option. For grass clump ups, we suggest when you are mowing in thick, wet grass conditions that you raise the mower deck. If you have additional questions, please reach out to our contact us section at https://www.hustlerturf.com/contact.
