2015 Hustler Raptor with Flip Up Deck Option
The new 2015 Hustler Raptor will feature a Patent Pending push button deck lift for easy blade access. Simply push the button and within about 20 seconds the cutting deck will flip up nearly 90 degrees upwards. The deck drive belt is held in place by steel plates. This means deck maintenance is much easier without the need of removing bolts or deck belts. This technology is not an industry first but however the Hustler Raptor will be the first flip up deck that does not require the deck belt to be removed and is fully automated. Country Clipper and Grasshopper commercial grade zero turns were among the first to start with flip up technology.
