    I can get a Shortcut with very low hours for the same as a Fastrak. Is one better for hills? I noticed the mention of a miniZ coming out soon in one of the discussions below. How is it different from the Fastrak? Thanks

    The Shortcut is an excellent unit, and when operated right can handle most hill applications with ease.
    One advantage of the shortcut is it has a commercial duty hydraulic drive system, the FasTrak has a drive system made for the homeowner.
    Either unit should handle your hills with ease.

    The Mini Z will be coming in the near future, it will have more engine options than the FasTrak and a commercial drive system.
    It will also have larger tires, better seats, and easier accesible areas than the FasTrak.
    The Mini Z will be available in 19, 23 and 25hp Kawasakis and 20 and 24hp Hondas with 44 and 52 inch cut
    There will be the standard Mini Z and the Super Mini Z.
    The Mini Z and Super Mini Z will be the industry leaders in small frame ZTR's

    Hope this helps
