    Anyone useing this new style mower ? I have a 2006 super z & I'm wanting to trade for a new mower. The new super z list around 12 grand & the tank LZ around 7,900.

    I love my super Z but 4 grand difference:laugh: ??? My dad has an older tank but i don't like the way it handles. The new one handles sooooooo much better.:) So if you have one how do you like it ??

    I haven't run one of the new ones, but they don't look to be as well built from what I've seen of them.

    Down side now is the 48's only come with a Briggs "commercial" grade engine. Looks like I'll be making the switch to another brand...

    Well.... I went to my local dealer today, my sales man said "If you buy that mower first dont tell ANYONE I sold it to you. Also the moment you load it up and take it your trailer just know im going to be Laughing my @$$ off!!" he said they have had problems with the bearings, once the grass gets up under the deck i'll have steering problems, etc..... Also the mower slows down to turn.. Sounds like a pain. I will go with my salesman on this one!

    Well it's official.......I'm a PROUD owner of a TANK:weightlifter: LZ 60 !!!!!!!!!!! I mowed with it today for 3 hrs. Yes I would buy another one tomorrow !

    So if your still laughing:laugh:your wasting your time.:cool2: Now if I were you I would find me a different salesman to deal with. If he works for you fire him .:waving:

    This mower is a new style for 2012.....just released . So don't think anyone has had or used one long enough to have a bearing problem. So if your still thinking about buying one......the green go ahead flag is waving.:)
