2021 is Hustler’s 60th anniversary, and for this month-long celebratory tour, we are partnering with a tractor brand observing their own 70th anniversary, AGCO’s Valtra. So a Valtra T174 EV tractor will be towing Hustler’s wagon from one end of the country to the other.
This year, Hustler is supporting Farmstrong with various actions and fundraising events.
Farmstrong is an initiative designed to give farmers the skills and resources to live well, farm well and get the most out of life.
Hustler will donate $300 to Farmstrong for each demo day during our 2021 Roadshow, but YOU can also make a difference! For each adult coming to a demo (you’ll need to register on the day of the demo to count), Hustler will donate an additional $5.
“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.“

1. Twin speed rear pusher blade powered by hydraulic cylinders and greaseless slides provides longevity with low maintenance.
2. Our new Feed Control in-cab joystick gives fingertip control over the entire feeder, letting you control the feed row of any feed type and density.
3. With the toughest 12,000lb roller chains and hardened sprockets, the new RX range is built to handle the heaviest loads with ease.
4. Our unique HD Puckboard floors are slippery, durable and extremely tough. 15mm thick rear floor and 12mm thick cross floor for longevity.
5. When it comes to visibility no other wagon beats an RX. See right through to the rear of the machine and into the cross floor with no obstructions blocking your view.
6. We’ve gone to a larger feed bar, giving maximum torsional strength with a lower profile for the best of both worlds.
7. Unique drawbar provides superior maneuverability and weighs the load both when on the jack and attached to the tractor without the need to fold and unfold a parking stand.
8. All chains have adjustable tensioners with easy access for long life and simple servicing.
In longer wagons – unlike trailers – the load moves to the front of the wagon as it’s being fed out. This shifts the load balance around, and can often exceed a drawbar’s load and create a harsh ride. Adding a triple load sharing axle to our longer wagon range distributes the weight across the entire area, which provides more constant drawbar loading, safer operation and a smoother ride.
Thanks to the load-sharing design, the improved suspension of the RX218 reduces impact on the tractor and diminishes chances of unsettling the tractor while operating in winter feeding conditions. This provides far more safety in slippery conditions, compared to a tandem axle in which every bump is transferred to the tractor with fore/aft motion.
Bigger foot print provides a huge reduction in soil compaction and improves floatation on soft ground allowing for a smaller tractor to be used compared to a tandem axle design.
The combination of a rear steering axle, with a more popular tyre size range extends tyre life, reduces pasture damage and scuffing, and lowers the overall operational cost for the same weight class when compared to a tandem axle setup.
The heavy-duty leaf springs suspension with tie rods provides extra cushioning making for a smooth, fast ride, eliminating the bounce when operating at speed with heavy loads, and the 6 wheel braking provides massive stopping power with the heaviest of loads for added safety.
