In 1964, Hustler® introduced the world’s first twin-lever zero-turn lawn mower. The twin-lever design created by Hustler is used by most all zero-turn manufacturers today. With a jump on the competition, Hustler quickly began improving the original design by implementing a rigorous R&D program to engineer, test, and push the envelope on what was possible with a zero-turn mower for the commercial market. In 2012, Hustler took these years of innovation and experience with heavy-duty commercial equipment and put that knowledge into a residential zero-turn mower called the Raptor®. The success of the Raptor led to a complete series of Raptor models, and eventually spun off the Dash Series. Today, homeowners rely on Hustler equipment for its durability, reliability and professional looking cut quality. They also depend on quality customer service, industry leading warranties and a dealer support network of over 1,000 US locations.
