Any experience with Fastcat RZ?

    I'm looking for a good zero turn to use on my own 1.25 acre yard. Right now my front runner is the JD z425, at 4K the cheapest thing with dual pumps and motors. There is a dealer less than a mile from my house that stocks Toro, Bob-Cat, and Hustler. I'd just as soon buy from him if I can find a model that I like.
    He says that theToro 4200 is more than enough for my needs. I'm wondering how the homeowner lines from Hustler and Bob-Cat (the Fastcat RZ) compare to the other zero turns I'm considering? So basically, help me decide between...
    1. John Deere z425 w 48' deck and 23 HP Briggs and Stratton
    2. Toro z4200 w 42' deck and 19 HP Kohler Courage
    3. Hustler Fasttrack Sport w 48' deck and 21 HP Briggs
    4. Bobcat Fastcat RZ w 42' deck and 22HP Briggs

    also, if anyone knows a price on the FastCat, that would be helpful.
    Thanks.

    Actually, I realize that this thread isn't named very well. If knew how, I would delete or re-title it "JD z425 vs Toro z4200 vs Huster Sport vs Fastcat RZ"
