    I saw the same machine at a local TSC and IMO it's the same machine BB has in theor brochure. Also it's the same price as BB lists through their dealer network. Only issue I can fathom is service... TSC aint got none, so you'd still hafta go to a BB dealer for any service.

    My question would be why buy a 60" ZTR with a top speed of 7mph? I mean really whats the point?

    true on the mph of 7 and the service is always a question. I'm not in the market just curious since a toro t-2 wb is $7,000 for a 52" its not so bad for the part timer. just wondering if anyone has any history with one

    Its a good mower, but if you have a dealer near you, you should really check out that mower with the 23hp Vanguard. Or if you want to step up the speed, check out the Pup model that tops out at 10mph. The Pup starts at $6000, so it's real affordable.

    Thats true for a part timer it would be a perfect choice and at a good price.

    For $6000 I wold probably look at something else! Not saying that it is a bad mower just saying there are more reputable mowers available in that range! Although probably with a smaller cut!

    Again the Speed debate, unless the you all have perfectly flat accounts with the space to get going over 10mph whats the point of the top speed, Please I had SCAGS that were rated for 10mph, never could maintain that speed with a quality cut,at 10mph I wore a kidney belt for pete's sake, and turf damage at those speeds. Are we racing, The faster you go, the less time you have to avoid objects like "rocks", clients crap they leave in a yard, gosh I felt like I was a Nascar driver sometimes no fun. IMO I'm out of the Midmount speed mowers game, WALKER all the way 6MPH tops, I win the race with a quality cut, and no double cutting ever, the turtle won the race???. I finish early each day now, verse my Mulching days.

    The price may be? :hammerhead:

    I don't know of any other real commercial grade 60" ZTR at this price point...

    Most 60" users are not mowing faster than 7 or 8 mph anyway or they have to double cut :cry:
