    Ok, this thing is really nice now. They did quite a few improvements last year, and now they hit it further out in the stands this year with the new tweaks! New seat is awesome, new baffles in the deck for more streamline cutting like the new 13 czt deck had, Bigger wheels and tires, 3100 transmissions with dual reservoirs so oil doesn't cross contaminate.. 48" 54" and 60" deck options, all new Kohler motor (Kawasaki is a little extra). Pricing will be final November 1st, but looking at $4599, $4799 and $4999 in deck order with Kawasaki option costing more. Guys, this thing has a 7 guage deck, if you really look, anything else this price is 10 guage. That is a huge difference if you ever hit anything... Tons of design changes also enjoy the pics from this weekend!

    Retro-
    what is that plastic cowling thing for (other than looks) and I assume it folds up for easy access to the engine compartment?

    Somebody at badboy has a fascination with wings and spoilers.

    Bad Boy President: Have you come up with a wing for this new ZT yet?
    Bad Boy Engineer: No sir.
    Bad Boy President: Well just draw some useless spoiler looking thing on the back and we'll tell'em it helps to cool the engine.

    Maybe they spend too much time drinking beer and watching NASCAR, and figure "Hey Buford, that'd look gooood on a dang mower!" :drinkup:
