The Hustler Flip Up

Great Plains has only been selling Hustler mowers for two season, and yet they’ve already reached a “Diamond” dealer status.  The secret to this success lies within the Hustler Turf Equipment name, products, and dealer support that customers want and trust.  Products like the new Hustler Raptor Flip-Up, which was available earlier this spring are why customers seek out Hustler mowers from dealers such as Great Plains.
Hustler Flip-Up mowers are the world’s only high-performance zero turn with “QuickFlip” technology.  These models feature a push button deck lift that makes cleaning and blade changing effortless.  This patent pending technology simply makes mowing life easier.  From deck height adjustment, to creating more storage space, this push button option is one customers young and old can respect.
Some of the highlights of this innovative new model are: a push button deck to raise and lower for easy blade access, automated deck height adjustment, exclusive SmoothTrak™ steering,  SmartChoke™ technology that allows you to turn the key and go, and finally, oversized 20 inch drive tires for added stability.  These are just some of the features that set the Flip-Up apart from other zero turns.  In fact, there really is no comparison to this mower.  With today’s technological advances isn’t it time a residential zero turn lawn mower should provide affordable technology to make mowing easier?  This new mower brings an end to an era of cranking, lifting and crawling under your mower.
The Hustler Flip-Up is the newest member of the Raptor family, and is the easiest mower on the market to own and maintain.  It provides commercial grade performance and productivity at a residential mower price.  If there is one thing that can extend the life of your mower while improving cutting performance it’s having a clean deck with sharp blades.  These time consuming factors can go unattended, but not when there’s a button that does the hard part for you.  How can you put a price on such an option?  One might think that these mowers would burst the residential buyers bubble, but in fact they are only about $1500 more than their standard counterparts.  These new models come in the Raptor 48 and 54 inch deck, both equipped with a Kohler 7000 Series engine.  They also have the best warranty in their class, a three year, 300 hour limited warranty for added peace of mind.
Zero turn mowers are designed for fast, precise cutting, and the Flip-Up is no different.  What makes this mower stand alone is one simple button which does what all other zero turns do, and then some. The Hustler Raptor Flip-Up is not just an easy choice, it’s the only choice.

Kubota ZD1200 Series Mowers

Kubota has produced over twenty five million diesel engines since 1922.  Their engines are recognized the world over as a symbol of quality and reliability.  Likewise the Kubota ZD Series (diesel mowers) have consistently produced powerful yet clean running mowers that homeowners and lawn care professionals have grown to depend on.  This year Kubota has extended their level of mowing performance and productivity even more with the introduction of the ZD1200 series mowers.
The ZD1211 is available with 60 and 72 inch mowing decks with side or rear discharge.  Both are equipped with a 24.8 Kubota diesel engine, and have several new features that will increase efficiency and productivity.  The ACS or Aerodynamic Cutting SystemTM  of the Kubota pro decks have been designed for optimized airflow.  The ACS decks are built for faster, efficient cutting and discharge.  This improvement results in reduced power consumption and increases fuel economy.  New spindle shafts, blade designs, and a flexible discharge chute all play an integral part in optimizing airflow within the deck.  The deck’s spindle shaft is now larger and more durable, while the redesigned cutting blades are shaped to improve both cutting efficiency and overall load balance.  These new blades also provide a longer service life!
Improved airflow within the deck is a great advancement                      for performance, but there are also several new features that will ensure a smoother ride with the ZD1211 and improve overall comfort.  A more comfortable seat will result in less operator fatigue and great productivity, and that’s exactly what customers are getting with Kubota’s new 1200 series mowers.  With dual armrests, higher backrests, and lumbar support, the fully padded reclining bucket seat ensures a high level of comfort.  The new low profile tires are sure to improve stability and traction on turf and the 3 position damper force adjustment lever lets owners personalize their comfort even more.  The new ergonomically designed control layout and large bright LCD panel allows for faster operations and easier handling.
There’s a lot of changes with the new Kubota 1200 series diesel mowers, but customers can still expect a rugged design powered by a dependable engine that will get through the toughest mowing jobs with ease.  The 1200 series is now available at your local Great Plains Kubota.
