    Just to let ya'll know. Our Exmark distributor had their annual dealer meeting this past weekend w/ a couple of Exmark factory staff on hand. From Exmark executives, there will be a 34" and 44" introduced in EARLY spring 06', if there are no problems in testing. The 34" has integrated hydros and a 19hp Kawi. I'm sure the 44" will be equipt the same. I believe the deck will similar to the CT series in construction. No pictures are available yet!

    They haven't built any or taken any orders for them. I was told fall of "06". I wasn't able to get any pics either. The R & D guys wouldn't let it out yet.

    While you're out there taking pics would you mind going over to Dixie Chopper R&D and getting a few of the new 34" RunBehind? Yup, the cat's out of the bag now.

    Anybody wanna buy a pair of slightly used (29 & 44 hours) Ferris walkbehinds? j/k

    Not only passing, but also through with them. Great product but less and less dealership in town besides unsatisfactorily slow, who-care repair service.

    Would someone explain to me where in the world (or why) you would use a 34" Z, or even a 44???

    I hear ya Cc.

    One of my college guys is a ex-wrestler at around 6,4, 300 pounds. My one 61" Z (Ferris 1000) looks small with him on it. In fact he dwarfs it and I will not let him use it anymore other than flat areas. I can just imagine the sight of him on a 34" Z...now that would be flippin' comical for sure.

    I wonder which would weigh more???
