New zspray

I forgot we got another zspray the other day, it is a 2011 intermediate with both tanks on the rear(all separatable).

the new gps speedometer is sweet, hardwired and even has mode for temps.

springs under the foot platform(also redesigned and more comfy with more foot room it feels) for a way better ride. we are switching all of ours over to springs now. the side deflector is cool too.

i tried to take pics so you guys could see some of the upgrades including many frame parts especially the front castor frame.

very nice machine man, very nice

way to go zspray and Ltrich

I knew you'd like that speedometer. It's been nice to have and I've become spoiled. I'd like to retrofit my 2009 with it. If I had some decent instructions, I'm sure it wouldn't be that difficult. I just ordered a new muffler for it today. The present one is beginning to leak at the seam.

Congrats on the new member of the team!

Congrats man, very nice machine, and nice upgrades.

All it needs now is a steering wheel.

Ted, the computer and new deflecter should work with the old machines. I took me about 2 hours to put it all on mine intermediate. As for changes, computer, deflecter, moved the lid for the tank, and put the pump back on top of the tank. And since im not a heavy guy i took the middle spring out of the footboard so it was softer for me.

yeah, that one is my machine most of the time so the others have the choice of how many, we have up tp five per so plenty to work with.

i did not think anyone would notice the tank lids, actually less in the way there.

also, the plumbing is completely different with shut off vavles under every tank to simplify things, and also the way the front castors are mounted to the frame.

the foot switch is also a dif brand or model, for whatever reason it is, it is a more responsive switch and easier to use.

Cool stuff. Looks like LT Rich ain't sittin' down, always improving. One idea I have is why not use a retractable hose reel? (one tug, and it rewinds itself).

BTW.....DITTO on the steering wheel

Grassman, I kinda cheated. I talked to Shane last week when I was at LT RICH getting my computer and deflecter for mine. I saw them and looked it over. Although a retractable hose reel would be pretty cool.

I've searched the web for a small retractable hose reel for our T3000's, but they are all to big in diameter to suite my needs. Most are as large as 15 - 18" in diameter, but they should fit nicely on a Z. These retractable reels are designed for electric cords, air hoses, and/or liquid. If I was a Z-owner, I'd buy one, use a 3/8 inch braided hose and see how it works. Many retractable reels are about $70. my 2 cents
