    Who has run a 34" phazer or Toro Z300 34"? I'm looking to find out how fast it can give a good quality cut. Any guesses on miles per hour? Top speed is 8.0 but will it cut at say 6mph? Thanks guys!:hammerhead:

    The faster you cut the less quality cut.

    There are so many variable to that question that I don't know if I could give you an answer. What kind of grass? How long is it? Is the grass wet or dry? Mulch or Side discharge? Is the ground hard or is is spungy or maybe even muddy?

    The reason why is because I am debating between buying another WB the Z300 or the wright stander. Productivity is a big factor to me compared to price.
    Thanks!

    I just got an email from exmark and they said that the phazer will cut at full speed 8mph!

    I have the Z300 34 and cut at full speed and the cut is awsome.Go with the Z300.

    I have the z300. I love it. I run it at full speed and have no problems. With the grass being taller, go slower of course, but I think both will work fine.
