    Has anyone got any new info on the new cub Z wing I noticed on the web site the tank had what they called modular transmission, and the z wing has a white
    transmission. Anyone know the diffrence. They are still both classified as cooercial but the z wing is cheaper

    I think what they mean by "modular" is that is has a pump and a hydraulic motor as individual pieces rather than it being in one housing like the IZT that the smaller mowers use. The IZT is not typically used for a commercial grade machine. The Z-Wing uses motors by White Hydraulics and pumps by Hydro Gear. It is still a "modular" design. Just Cub Cadet chose to print the names of the manufacturers.

    There's been a few threads on here about this recently. Do a search on z wing and you'll find them.

    Oh come on, people? All the interest in a mower that can get through gates and no one has taken one of these for a test?

    Do not make me do this. Do not make me drive a long distance and waste a day on this.

    Bueller? Bueller?





    Bueller?

    My dealer got one in today, he called me. As soon as the snow stops, I'm going to take a lookie. He claims he the first around to have one. After doing a lot of thinking about it, though, I'm not sure that that mower is really the one I need. I've got my share of gated lawns to do, but really not that many that a riding mower would really work in. I'm kinda partial to a stander or even a sentar, myself. We shall see.
