im serisouly planning on buying a Z this next few weeks, im demoing a 144z 17hp on thursday.

should i get a 17hp 144z - $4999

a 19hp 144z no computer $5599

or a 19hp 144z with computer $5899

or should i go with a 34z? or a wb?

now that im thinking... maybe i should just get a 34z all together to cut down on costs. because a 44 might be to big for some. but i dont know, its a real tough desicion

Go for the 44, everyone always starts off with the small stuff and then gets larger because they realize bigger equipment = higher efficeiency = greater profits. If you plan on growing get the 19hp 144z with comp. Spend more now because a year down the line you will be happy you did. There is always 21" for properties that it wont fit on, but a 36" takes a loooong time on the bigger properties. Its not just 8 inches wider, because when you figure in overhand and such, it can be around 20% more efficient.

definetly go with the 44" inch and I would strongly suggest getting a 19 hp.

i havnt had any problems with my 19 horse on the same mower. It am sure glad that i got 19 with mine. 17 just doesnt seem like it would "cut" it.

go with the eye-q system...i do believe that is what your reffering to when you say computer. That thing looks sweet
