Bob, I bought the 2006 model 52" before the start of this season and I am very satisfied with my purchase. It has been my main machine all year long and has performed flawlessly. It gives a very good cut whether the grass is dry, damp or wet and the convenience of being able to switch to a walk behind in about 5 seconds (instead of going back to the trailer to get one) when mowing hills saves a TON of time. I realize that lots of guys will just go ahead and drive their ZTR on hills, even steep hills, but I like not having to worry about rolling over or sliding uncontrollably down a hill. My machine has the Kohler 28 EFI which has also performed great. No fooling with a choke, lots of power when needed, and is easy on the gas usage. Call up the factory and see if they can arrange a way that you can demo one for a week. If you do get your checkbook out because you will want one.
