This looks like a good mower from the specs and whatnot, with a 5 year warranty. How well does it mow? And can I get a vaccuum bagger on it?

The 42" iZ is a solid little no frills mower at a good price. It has the same basic hydraulic system as the larger/heavier LZ (same pumps/different wheels motors). This makes it very reliable. You should have no hydro issues with the machine.

17hp Kawasaki KAI. - Good commercial engine.

It has a relatively small footprint. Good for storage, trailering, gates, etc but it rides a little rough compared to a larger machine.

There is a 3 bin collection system available for the iZ.

In my opinion, the iZ is probably the most trouble free commercial Z from Husqvarna. It's a decent machine.

would the 17 hp engine have enough power to power an impeller? Also, does anyone know if it cuts and bags well?
