    I've known him (my dealer) for years and he told me about a new commercial mower but MUCH cheaper then what I currently have now (ferris and snappers) that he just picked up the product line for...

    It looks like a residential zt, no where near as heavy as a snapper/ferris, but has a kawa motor and prices starting at:

    42" 2995.00
    48" 4200.00
    54" 4500.00

    Has aonyone else seen these or run one? I was looking at the smaller ZT for 3k... would be nice on some of my smaller yards, might have to go demo one of these for a week but wanted to see if anyone else has had any expeience with one on here...

    Any thoughts?

    They had an ad in Turf magazine, and Ive never seen a homeowner model of any mower in that magazine.

    Just reading over the flyer my dealer handed me... They say its a commercial mower and comes with a commercial use warranty... This would be MUCH cheaper then any other commercial mower we've used before...

    Just wondering if anyone else has used one yet? I was planning on upgrading to a larger walk behind, but for the same cash can get a ZT rider?! Guess I'm gonna have to demo this big dog and write a review of it on here....

    I demoed one from a dealer in Conneticut. I felt it was a good machine. Plus it has a kawi engine. I think this is a good machine

    For those prices, you could get 3 48" for the same price of a 60" zero turn like some of them are going!! Id demo it and take a look!!

    I was told that they were made by Hustler, much like Land Pride mowers.

    I have seen one in person last month at a show. They kinda look like the old husqvarna`s to me. I am sure they are good mowers, cant be any worse than bad boy.

    There is almost always a reason for cheap, this machine is probably no exception.

    I agree with this statement, and I am almost "waiting" for their to be something wrong with them... BUT, I'm not sure yet... It just kind of seems like a bare bones mower, nothing fancy, which is maybe why its cheaper... Think I may just have to go and grab one for a week and test it out and see for myself... The idea of only paying 3K for a NEW commercial mower would be great, at this price I would buy a new one every freaking year!
