The Hustler Raptor Flip-Up features a patent-pending push-button deck lift for easy cleaning and maintenance. In only 22 seconds and without removing the deck belt, the deck raises. This technology is a first in the industry and was received with high praise and excitement when introduced to dealers in September at Hustler Days in Orlando. The Flip-Up’s other features include a Kawasaki FR premium engine, heavy-duty fabricated steel deck, Hustler’s patented automatic brake system, and push-button deck height adjustment, and a three-year/300-hour limited warranty.

The Hustler FasTrak and FasTrak SD have been redesigned with a large fabricated front-end, new 1-1/2-inch by 3-inch tubular frame and new 10-gauge fabricated deck that is more than five inches deep. The FasTrak and FastTrak SD also feature a new custom bolstered seat with internal suspension and 22-inch rear tires, and continue to come equipped with great components such as Kawasaki FR premium engines and Hydro-Gear transmissions.

“The FasTrak and FasTrak SD have been at the top of their class for more than 10 years and have been redesigned from the ground up to provide even more value and performance than ever before,” said Adam Mullet, vice president of sales and marketing.

Mullet continued, “The overwhelming excitement is about the Raptor Flip-Up. It finally gives the dealers a good answer to the question, ‘How do you get to the blades?” Simply amazing!”
