Z5000 or Z500? The Z500 is commercial and the 5000 is a homeowner machine.

You added one too many zeros. The 25 Kohler Command is on the Z-masters. To answer your question, yes its a good mower.

Do you mean the Toro Professional 5000. New for 2012. My dealer just got them in stock. They look really nice but I think the price tag was some where around $9500

If you are talking about the Professional 5000 you are right it does come with the Kohler Comand 25hp.

AH HA. Its the new name for the G3 toros. I have one. Did not know they changed the name. Yes its a good mower IMO. Thought it was weird that you mentioned a 52 inch deck and Kohler command, the Z5000 is a 50 inch stamped POS deck and a lower end kohler engine. But apparently the Professional 5000 is the new G3. They now refer to my machine (74915) as a 5000 as well. Been out of the dealer scene for over year. This will confuse people for sure.

And 8300 bucks is a good deal, they retail for 9999.

Yeah thats some BS. John Deere does this with their machines, too. Change the numbers around. Like the older X595 is not the same as the new X500 series garden tractors, they are now the X700 series. Shenanigans!

OP, did you get the 5000 series? I'm looking at a 52" 3000 series. Would like to hear your thoughts.
