What do you want to know? A bunch of us on this site run Super Z's.
Mine is a 08 31hp Kaw with 66" cut XR7 deck. 1152 trouble free hrs [knock on wood]

I was just wondering what pros and cons everyone has had with these machines. I am targeting alot of large lawns this season and if I get enough I may add one of these to the fleet. I really like the design of these machines but hearing from someone who has run one would really help my decision making. Thank you

Really the only problem I have ever heard of on the super z's was the hydros failing pretty early on people that mowed a lot of hilly terrain. The new super z's have a different hydro setup that I believe they warranty for 3000 hrs and are supposed to be pretty darn good.

If I was buying a new mower this year I would definitely be demoing the new Gravely. The Pro Turn 400 series

Because Gravely has done their homework and the 400 series machines are excellent mowers. Gravely stands behind their products too, and their customer service is top notch.


There are several guys here who use their SZ's on northern turf and most complain about the VX4 deck's discharge clumping. Most in the south have no problems on the stiffer turf grasses found down there.
