All New 2014 Bad Boy ZT Elite Still $4999!!

Ok, this thing is really nice now. They did quite a few improvements last year, and now they hit it further out in the stands this year with the new tweaks! New seat is awesome, new baffles in the deck for more streamline cutting like the new 13 czt deck had, Bigger wheels and tires, 3100 transmissions with dual reservoirs so oil doesn't cross contaminate.. 48" 54" and 60" deck options, all new Kohler motor (Kawasaki is a little extra). Pricing will be final November 1st, but looking at $4599, $4799 and $4999 in deck order with Kawasaki option costing more. Guys, this thing has a 7 guage deck, if you really look, anything else this price is 10 guage. That is a huge difference if you ever hit anything... Tons of design changes also enjoy the pics from this weekend!

Retro-
what is that plastic cowling thing for (other than looks) and I assume it folds up for easy access to the engine compartment?

it just swings open for access..... We have everyone and their dog asking for a spoiler, so that's the closest they came up with. It looks really neat on there, fits the looks of the motor. I heard the Kohler rep talking the motor up and spitting out all the techs on it, but I wasn't paying attention....lol. Bad news if you want the rops though, the spoiler wont fit with them at same time...

If that engine is supposed to be so high tech, why no high tech air filter?

Price brother, its still a homeowner motor, even in the top tier homeowner range.... You get into the $6000 to $7500 and up mowers you start getting the cyclonic briggs with cyclonic filters, 30hp Kohler command with canister, or FS Kawasaki with over double the life expectancy.....
