ZTwo

Envy, what is a ZTwo? Did you get the DVD on the TANK with the Gunny? Need to watch it again.
Thanks for all the help and advice.
Dave

Same thing as a TANK.

Just available at Lesco in their colors.
That's one in my avatar.

My main mower is a 52" ztr. I also use a 36WB belt drive for gated yards. The majority of my yards average around 12K with the smallest being around 5k and the largest 3 acres. ( mowed 75 weeklys this season)

I have demo'd several mowers this year to determine what to buy next season. I am going to need some more mowers. I used a 60" Z with good results, however, the 66" was too large and scapled quite a bit in areas I have never had problems with.

The 36" is too small for the open spaces. I have decided that for my crews a 48" WB hydro is the way to go. It is virtually as fast as the 52ZTR and takes up less space and weighs less.

Simply not true. I prefer 52" decks and have and will continue to take jobs from 60" LCOs who scalp the hills of this area leaving unhappy premium customers. You couldnt be more wrong in this case.

Just and update, I no longer own a 60" deck and I have not missed them yet.

For all purpose mowing the 52" is a much better choice in my opinion.

i hear alot about scalping. and now that i consider myself a pro mower, last year i started running a new 56" exmark. from 36&48"exmark wb's to 56"z, i thought was to big. i dont have any experiance on any other brand of mower, but i know i will not allow my mower to scalp! it has the deck lever that raises it. my leg at times may get fatigued from pumping the heavy lever, but when i drive away its worth not seeing a scalped spot that us mowers can spy from a mile away....thanks

don't forget the 54" decks- I like my hustlers yet I still want to get a flex -deck so I can get wide when needed.
