Went to a toro dealer today

I was looking for a 60" toro z 500 with a 27hp kohler turbo force deck. The price was $8,000. The triple bagger was another $2,899. I live in CT this seems to be the best price around. I would like some input from people that run this mower, to see how they like it pros and cons.

the differences are night and day. less parts to break. lower center of gravity, more responsive, built more durible, handels hills better then any ztr i have ever used. same deck as z-500. best cut in the buisness. does the z=500 have flat free front tires. depending on modle you can look foward to increased ground speed with g3.

i went to my toro dealer last week and he quoted me 8,000 out the door for a z 500 52" with the 27 hp kolher. the g3's here are about 1200 more dollars, it puts you around the price of a turf tiger.
