I want to thank everyone for the advise on buying a new ztr. Today I bought a new 2001 Yazoo/Kees with a 52" deck and 25hoursepower Koler for 6600 dollars. I have 3 accounts that have large fenced properties, with 4 foot gates. I can get the 52" deck through their gates on an angle. The dealer also up graded the air filter, extra set of blades and an extra oil filter. I can't wait to start mowing again.
