    I'm sick of all the hype of everyone saying that there Z is the best. I would love to hear if anyone has one that they hate and would never buy again or has already 'boycotted' because of past experience. So can we do this or is this too against the rules to say that I or someone else won't buy a particular mower because this and that happened to me in the past?

    I have 2 dislikes about my turftiger-
    ride,it needs a suspension seat.
    stripe ability,it wont stripe anything like my w/b-both have advantage decks and run same blade combos.

    I really like this. The two posts are great. I think that we as a group can work something new here and move forward putting our dislikes out there for others to read or this can be a way for people to solve others problems instead of the usual banner waving that is all to common on hundreds of posts about the same subject.

    i hate great dane, and would never buy one again. I dont hate MY great dane, just the company. Parts availability is rediculous, and the dealers, ive been to over 10, are very unknowlegable, and unhelpful.

    Personally, I don't think I will ever buy another Z no matter who makes them. They tear up the lawn and by the time you make a K or Y type turn, I've caught up to you with my slower ground speed, dual drive hydro WB. So where is the advantage I ask, of a Z over a WB? Answer...there is none believe me.

    Maybe not, but I will have less trimming to do than you:D . 30k average...how many obstacles though? A dual drive WB will run circles (no pun intended) around obstacles over a Z with far less turf damage and trimming. You may finish mowing b4 me, but I will be sitting on the tailgate having something to drink while I watch you finish :D
