The demo I used today had flex forks so I wonder if they are pushing it as a band aid stock to solve a possible problem? They may have taken all the flex out of the chasses and the added weight does make a machine beat you more or is this just in my head and he was full of BS the guy who told me this?
I think I did notice how stiff the machine was,just solid as hell, a tank feeling.But it did not feel as solid as say the Cub Cadet Tank!
Thanks for helping.
The person you talked to has a mower problem. I've been running most of the afternoon full stick, and would not want a better riding, or smoother operating mower. The added weight and longer wheel base alone will make my 72 ride much better than yours, and I know this for a fact from comparing it side by side with my 66. The lighter weight and shorter wheel base on my old mower and yours produces a little choppier ride in comparison to the added weight and longer wheel base of the newly designed Super Z.
