It has been a bit of everything small on the older one (pull out the welder)....also blown motor, turbo went out, overheating, trouble getting parts quickly. The fan also blows heat on the operator sweat + dust =

I must say without lots of details..... Ventrac made good with the latest problem.

In Fantasy Land, This would be the best mower for you...

To bad it is discontinued!

I saw this thing in person at my hustler dealer one day. The thing is as huge as a car. I immediatly thought for some reason about crushing cars!

See attached pictures and spec sheet!

i would use a walkbehind with a sulky. kind of dangerous around the pond,when it rains everything will run down to the pond and the z might get stuck. th walkbehind might get stuck too,but i think it will be easier to ge out.

Another vote for the ATZ (if you can find one); I mow some crazy slopes with mine and it has performed flawlessly.
