I got a PZT 60 about a month ago when I was also in the market for a new ZT. Out of all the shops in town, the Husqvarna is by far the most impressive. I liked the MZ a lot, but REALLY wanted a true commercial motor. When I saw that the PZT came with the Kawi FX, I was sold. The PZT was a couple thousand more, but for me, it was worth it. My yard has me mowing 6.5-7 hours a week with some hills.



Here's my weeds first starting to come in and the first cut.



I'm really surprised these machines aren't more popular than they are. I sure love mine.

Nice machine. The changed the deck to the pz design when they came out with the mz-t. I have the Dixon version of the pz and they are awesome!

Anybody looking at the mz 6128 should be aware that it's specs have changed some since last year. I got mine last year largely because it used the 3400 series trans and had 23" tires and was $200 cheaper than the others I was considering. This year I noticed that they are using the 3100 trans and 22" tires and is $100 more. Maybe some other changes, I'm not sure. I suppose they could have made some improvements in some areas, too, to be fair.

It's still a nice machine, but not quite the same now,

They downgraded it so they could make a case for the new m-zt 61. It has 3400 series and 23 inch tires.

I see. Thanks. I'm sure glad I got my 6128 when I did. No way can I even go 10 mph on my ground, or need the extra 2hp. or ROPS. Everything else like the linkages and deck adjustment and all look the same. So for $1000 more, they gave it 2 hp more and let it go faster and gave it a ROPS

It must make marketing sense for them, but they lost a lot of edge over the competition by downgrading the 6128 so much and increase the price at the same time. It was that edge that sold me on it.

I posted in the homeowner thread but why not here too. I just picked up an 2012 MZ6128 with zero hours. Nice machine cut mowing time by a little over an hour and I was able to eliminate some trimming time by getting closer / under trees I couldn't previously. Well built machine, runs strong, cut looks nice, etc. I'm like a kid in a candy store right now.

Question - Is everyone still running the supplied blades or have people moved over to something else?

The supplied blade on mine was a joke. The replacement blade
from my dealer is far better, thicker and harder steel, same part
number from husky, just much better.

Hmm that is interesting. I'll keep using these and monitor them to see how they hold up. Thanks for the reply.
