Hustler Flex Forks
Hustler Turf Equipment has engineered many innovations throughout the lawn care industry. Zero turn riding mowers manufactured by Hustler deliver impressive ground speed, smooth steering and a high quality cut.
Uneven turf and rough terrain typically derail the best designs. Mowing bumpy lawns results in operator fatigue, poor cut quality and even damage to lawnmowers. Every rut ripples through belts, springs, bolts and your back. Hustler designed flex forks to ease this trauma. Flex Forks replace the rigid front caster forks with a flexible design.
Each flex fork absorbs sudden changes in the turf like a shock absorber. The caster quickly flexes then returns to the standard position. This innovation contains the disruption so the frame, deck and rider avoid the sudden jolts and excessive vibration typical of rigid designs. This accessory has become so popular some Hustler models now feature the distinction black flex forks as standard equpment.
