    Have cut w/Cub Commercial mowers for a yr. now. Bought the ZWing 48" w/ the fold up deck to get into a 36" gate. Anyone else have problems w/the deck folding up and down? Looking to buy a 60" or 72" TANK in the spring. Anyone run these mowers and if so how do you like them?

    You can get a Lesco machine for a lot less money than the Cub Commercial and they are the same mower. I've heard a lot of good things about them and their definately one of the better machines out there.

    Yeah, I have the 60" Lesco Z, which is the same as the Cub M-60 Tank.
    Great machine.

    If your Cub dealer is good though, and reasonably priced, there are a lot more engine options available from Cub. Lesco's are only available with Kawasaki and Generac engines so far. Cub has both of these, plus Kohler, Honda and new for '06 a diesel. Plus they have various liquid cooled and EFI options.

    Yes they're a little cheaper, but you can't get the service with Lesco as you would with a Cub dealer. That's half the game.
    Love my M60 Tank. Great cut and striping.
    Getting to old for that 36 walkbehind though. Going with a 36 stander in the spring. Got to make my life a little easier!:blob3:

    Could you please give a review of the Z-wing? I have not found anyone who actually owns one to find out how it works and cuts in the field.

    Thanks

    Wow, that's great news for this guys because he's having the difficulty with the fold-up.
    Glad to hear of some companies still do the right thing when they realize there's a bug to work out.

    Hey Tank, are you not pretty close to where they build all these mowers?
