Only problem I can see with that is this makes it so wide, kind of defeating the purpose of having a narrow Z, ie trying to fit through a tree/garden bed while mowing or just a couple fruit trees planted together etc.

Im now trying to imagine the husky with those wide tires fitted, providing it doesn't make the machine too much wider for gates, then it would be an excellent mod!! could make the difference between mowing after some rain or not for the risk of rutting.
I had a gravely 34 stander and it was 730lbs...way to heavy!! I had to get rid of it for the ferris because those narrow tires were horrible...and it would just barely fit through a 36" gate, so if I had've put wider tires on it there was no way it was gettin through. I sure do miss that mower! Gravely makes a great mower...

Yea theres always a catch eh! The OP was after a Z that will get through a 36" gate.

Although I think some guys were measuring 35.5" with the wider tires on stock rims in that thread.

I think the Gravely is out for me because it is way too heavy and I would have to pay for shipping because it is not a model that the dealer that stocks gravely sells... Oh well

Yeah WAYYYY too heavy.... No catcher for me except for in the fall. It's all mulch and SD while mowing... I don't have a clue on the Husky price just yet because I didn't get there in time before the dealer closed at 6:00 but I,ll get a price on it tommorow.

I demoed a 34" stander like you use to have but I found a Wright Sentar to be more pratical with it's sitting/standing capability.

Got a quote today from my Husqvarna dealer for the RZ3016 and it would be $3,164 tax included and he said it's a model they can't keep in stock! So that must say something about the mower!!
greenology... What's the price where you are? I'll do the conversion so don't bother doing that.
Feel free to add anymore feedback anyone.

The RRP over here is $4499. I have got them quite a bit lower than this.
You should check your retail price & do some bargaining with the dealers in the area.

Cant quite compare our prices based on conversion rate alone however, as there would be some import taxes I'm sure & of coarse freight costs added onto our price over here.
