    Whats the going rate on this mower? The deck size is a 48, and it has a commercial grade deck on it, with the stripping kit an a Kohler engine. Hydro Gear ZT-2800 with oil reservoir.

    DON'T DO IT. You'll thank me later. Spend your money on a better built mower.

    I am a former Cub dealer. DO NOT buy that machine if you intend to use it for commercial mowing. It is not even a good homeowner machine. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

    Cub has terrible quality control at the factory. The Z Force is just a poorly designed, cheaply built piece of trash. Deck, spindles, pulleys, belts, controls, linkage parts, you name it. All are items just waiting to fail. Cub used to have a 3 year warranty. I guess they were going broke trying to keep the junk going that long. That Zforce will be in the shop so much you will curse the day you bought it.
    Also, Cub is terrible about keeping parts in stock at the factory. Last summer it could take weeks, or months, to get a part as common as a blade, for Cub machines. Listen to me, I know what I am talking about!!!!!!!. I was a Cub dealer. DO NOT BUY THAT MACHINE.

    Yeah, but look how close you are to the factory and distribution center.
