    It'll be nice when all these engine manu's finally get their act together and rate them the same.

    They still don't have metal on both sides of the scalp roller to keep it from bending like just about every other Manu. Too busy makin spoilers and sporty lookin black seats that are gonna burn you when it's hot I guess. Lol.

    With no HP increase over the exiting Courage engine, in what ways is the 7000 Series an improvement?

    Can't speak for the ZT shown, but on my outlaw the metal flange the scalp wheels are bolted to has to be 3/8" or more with a support welded on the side. Can't help but think if you are hitting something hard enough to bend that, it would be the least of your concerns. But if you did you can replace that outer wall at not much cost. Again this is speaking on the Outlaw. The ZT is still a homeowner model. The likes of the Gravely ZT XL has the same setup, is the same price range as the ZT and has the same type of flange. If we are talking apples to apples.
