60 Gallon ZMax: My new toy.

This got delivered today, and wow! It's awesome. So many great changes from my 2010 Max.

Pros:
-ride quality with the suspension forks is drastically improved. Should help with accuracy.
-access to to the motor and working components is much improved.
-love the new open access to the pump and filter of the aux tank. Should also help with the aux tank not bouncing around as it's now attached to the frame instead of dropped into a tray.
-foot grip on the standing plate is much better.
- air filter and motor configuration is much better positioned. Should help remedy burning up stators.
-speedometer
-better positioning of brake mechanisms on the tires. Should give better brake control.
-hoses are much better protected now against rubbing.
-oil changes are going to be much easier. Same with spark plugs.

Cons:
-disappointed the foam marker hose isn't clear. I'll be changing that. I like to see the foam making its way down to the droppers.
-the switch for the foam marker is not beside the switch for the main pump. It's where the aux switch is on my 2010. I'll be switching those back. One thumb movement to turn both on is how I roll.

More to come....

10,500ish

I had a mower guy freak out about what I paid for the machine. He didn't believe me that per hour my machine could do at least 5x revenue than his 10k mower could do.

Love mine. What a beast of a machine. My foam switch is next to the main pump. Why are clear hoses a concern? It doesn't take long at all for the foam to come out.

I don't like where the pump is located (or is that a separate pump for your foamy deal) at all but good for them for finally turning the motor 180 degrees.

I also wonder if those new funky casters fit a pro locker now.

It sure is a smoother ride! Love my 60 gallon max! We use two 2x4's and drive back tires between and lock the break. No movement, but we are also in a box truck
