Excel Hustler model XL172. Serial # A2691123
According to the Hustler website timeline, these were made 1966-67 and was their first zero-turn model with a 72” deck. Given that they pioneered the zero-turn in 1963, this is one of their earlier models. Offered for restoration or use as a parts tractor to fix up your model 172.
It runs, drives, and mows just fine; though slow and anemic compared to today’s zero turns. It is all mechanical belt/chain drive; predating the hydrostatic drive models. All new belts and chains have been fitted. Engine is the original air-cooled Wisconsin model TJD twin. 72” deck has three spindles and quick release latches not seen on later models. Main turf tires in great shape. We do have the sheet metal for the rear that covers the engine and it is included; it was removed to make room for a non-standard fuel tank. Battery is not included.
Location: zip code 19342.
