ZK is faster(15mph), stronger(31hp and 37hp), bigger(hella thick steel), has two large gas tanks, floating deck(originals dont have them).
Hills? Standers can climb very steep hills very well. The ZK can climb mountains. I have made a video of my ZK going up one of the steepest hills I cut. Used to weed eat the whole thing. Regular 52/23 just slid down. I am still editing the videos, but ill put them up soon. Obviously youve never demoed a stander let alone a ZK. DEMO ONE
