Hey, I admit, I wasn't too pleased with some issues we had out of the 26els, but this year I am a huge Briggs fan. The Zt has a 27hp professional Briggs 50" at $4499 this year (I would recommend paying $150 extra for the seat upgrade, the new pup seat is sweet), and I have sold a bunch with no issues. The Zt has a beast of a deck with all steel pulleys, the spindles are very heavy duty. Briggs has revamped everything this year, and made the CZt 50" 23hp vanguard and the 30hp Briggs commercial outlaw with cyclonic air filter for $6499 my best sellers. Just for fyi Briggs has an Intek, then els, then the professional in order of grade of motor and expected lifespans.
