    Are you just trying to start a war ?

    I don't own one but I like them because you can buy them in like new condition for 50 cents on the $!

    They are good mowers, for 6200 $ they are a steal. That is what Lesco was selling them for. There are better products out there, you have to decide if it is worth the extra money. I like to use ZTR's on huge properties so I want the fastest and nicest ride I can afford.

    I demoed them my guys and me really did not like them.I know a lot of experienced, intelligent scapers love and swear by them. Not trying to ruffle feathers but I thought the handling and balance was way off. My buddy has a 2001 500hrs, his Exmark WB's get 500hrs a season his guys also dislike them. It's amusing when he forces them use it to get his money's worth. I can't put it anywhere near my Laser Z's and Super Z's. Just being honest.

    I have a 54" Tank and I love it. The price, quality of cut and feel is great. The 3 year warranty good to.

    Well I would have like an easy answer when I asked this question also. Good Luck. If you looked at my thread (the one linked above) you will get mixed thoughts. I have not gotten one. Well at least not yet. I have over 30 hours use of a Cub Z-Force 44 that a family member has and I think it is great. Yeah I know its not Commercial but Cub hit it well with the heavy duty residential mower. If the tanks are as over built for commercial standards as the Z-Force is for residential. It must be a winner.
