Nope, they too are different. Saw one last weekend next to the 2006. It has the revised TANK design and now also has a ROPS standard.

Looks good, how much did you pay?

Also, for anyone who knows, do the Tanks generally run more $ than the Z-Two for the same setup, because of the name, or are they pretty close?

The cubs will definitely cost more as you are paying for the name. I believe the Lesco 2006 60" is running around $6,499. I think the Cub is at least $1k more.

yes i have compared this mower to the hustler... the hustler was a little smoother but it did not cut the northern grasses very well. I would put the cut of this mower at or above the ultra cut deck of an exmark... yes i have used that mower too!

I paid 6900 with tax and doc fees. 0% 24 months puts it at $290 a month if that helps.

Yes you will pay about 1000.00 more for the same mower with the cub name... I like the lesco paint colors better anyways!

Our cub dealer is very close in price and the dealer has good service thats why we went with the Tank. Got 0% for 3 years and that put it at $190 a month.

When you say cub,do you mean a scag tiger cub? Also,is it 60" machine with a 25 hp kawisaki motor? I ask because I am looking to buy a new mower and I am going nuts trying to figure out which one to buy.

By the way,I was looking at all the Lesco mowers last week and they look like they are built like tanks. Of course,I am comparing them to 20 year old scag walk behinds,a 48" and a 52".

No I am talking Cub Cadet commercial. The Lesco Z-Two is the same mower as the cub Tanks just different paint.
