nice buy, for that price you did not lose at all.
But this is a belt driven mower, they are typically slower than hydrostatic mowers...

I dont want to start anything I voiced my views already

My issue with it would be operating a Z with 4000 hours and not realizing that it's at the end of it's life and planning appropriately for it...

Not trying to be mean but I wouldn't buy a Z with that many hours with low cash flow and without a backup mower.

they are pretty much the same. .25 mph doesnt really make a difference.

i bought the mower new and haven't had a single problem out of it until now other than normal maintenance. the guy that bought it from me called me today and said he had the engine apart. he said the rod had some stress cracks and just had a weak point and it finally broke. it had many hours on it and i got well worth my money out of it! im planning on buying a new zrt soon.
