Raptor® SDX Reviews

Raptor SDX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hustler One! Leaves Zero!!! I bought my 54” Radptor SDX with the 23Hp Kawasaki on it almost 4 weeks ago. I know December of all times was a weird time to buy it but, after getting a leaf cleaning estimate it was time. My dealer knew I was interested in the copperhead mulching blades so they swapped them for the stock blades. I managed to use it for 2.9 hours cleaning up the leaves. It pulverized piles that I had stacked 11” deep. Our yard now looks great even after the snow has cleared. The two main negatives I heard were about the blade height plate being in letters (not numbers) and the spindle/belt cover plates collecting debris. I fixed both of these so you now can see the height in numbers and you don’t need a wrench to remove the deck covers anymore. I bought this machine to save time and I already know it will. I’m just waiting more time before I review it more. I compared other ZT mowers and figured I’d get the best bang for a buck with the Hustler. Hopefully I don’t need the extended warranty and if I do my guys at Wando Power Equipment will take care of it. I heard about bolts falling off and hopefully all that is nonsense and partially Lowes fault? Hopefully this will be my best first zero turn but, the summer will tell. I wanted the Fastrack SDX but, my wallet settled on the Raptor 54 SDX. I compared many reviews and models but, I wound up with this. Hopefully it was a wise decision but, time/hours will tell.

Hi Jackie 23, Unfortunately, the SDX is no longer offered through Lowe&rsquo;s. However, you may be able to locate one through our Independent Dealer Network. The following link can help you find a local dealership in your area: As an alternative, the 2018 Raptor SD that is now offered through Lowe&rsquo;s has all of the same features as the SDX, with the exception of the open deck design.

The New 2019 SDX sounds exciting. The trans is upped to commercial grade HG ZT-3100, plus improved drive wheels etc. Compared with SD, the SDX forward speed is 7mph, and there is no blade-tip-speed presented. Anybody know the bts for the 2019 SDX?
