Dang, let me know where I can find one for $4k! husky website says $5,299.95 for the MZ6128ZT. Are Husky MSRP's known for being higher than what they actually sell for?

Thats msrp...who pays msrp? Not this guy. I always hunt for a sale or better price for every large purchase i make. Keeps my overhead low and gives a little more slack in my budget.

Yes, I have always played music,the drums are maple Ludwigs. The shop
doubles as music practice room and as a general workshop. The Ludwigs are about eight years old and have been on the road one time,which tells anyone I'm no good.
Have a set of Tama's that stays at a club and/or goes on the road.The
MZ has been used twice since I last posted , this crazy weather has me
needing to mow again tommorro, in the winter even.

Up until about 6 mos ago, I hadn't picked up a set of sticks since around 1974. Yea, I'm an old guy but always enjoyed my starter Slingerlands & then my Rogers. Another set of drums are on my bucket list but so much has changed since then. For now I'm relegated to para diddles on my practice pad until I can get my arms around everything again. I bet your Ludwigs sound great!

Yes, the Ludwigs sound wonderful and keep in tune. I used to have a set
of Slingerlands. Both Tama and Yamaha have some very nice mid grade
sets,just put a couple of coats of sealer on the insides and you are good to
play.Getb them feet working, they are still the key to great drumming.

dgfitz, any more updates on the 6128? I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a new mower in the next few days and the Husky is at the top of the list.
I gotta go look at the Dixon (which is practically the same machine, Husky owns/builds them) But the Dixon has a Kawasaki engine choice. Granted it's only a 23 HP engine but it's their FX series which I believe is their commercial rated engine line.

Thanks!

I have used the mower five times so far, cutting mostly winter weeds
and onions, does just fine. The Kawasaki FX engine is a true commercial
grade engine, more torque than the Briggs. We do not have a Dixon dealer
in this area for me to compare models, but if they are the same specs and
the price is close, I would go with the Dixon just because of the engine.
