Z Master model 74923
We are excited that you love your current Z Master mower.
Since the time you have purchased model 74923 in 2009, there have been some changes to the naming of the product series (G3 Performance to 6000 Series). We still carry model 74923 today, but under the 6000 Series name. From a product specification standpoint, the product today is essentially the same vs. 2009 models. It features a 52” Turbo Force deck and still has the tool-less adjustable deck baffle standard. From an engine standpoint, we are using the same Kawasaki engine (FX751V) today as the 2009 model 74923 that you have. What is different is that the engine manufacturer has changed the way they rate horsepower. The engine’s HP was rated at 27 HP in 2009. Now, the same FX751V engine is rated at 24.5 HP today. The engine has not changed, only the way the HP is rated. In addition, the product today features a standard deluxe suspension seat vs. the 2009 model which did not have that standard.
Thanks for your interest and continued support of Toro products!
