    First of all i want to thank pj

    He dropped off a 60" super z this morning and let me use it most of the day so i could run it side by side with my toro z-masters to give them a real world comparison.

    Let me tell you this is one fast mower:)

    On the job i used it on it ran circles around my 72"

    And i wasn't even going as fast as the mower has the potential of due to the fact that it was kinda rough in that field.

    I went maybe 3/4 speed across the largest field with one of my employees starting one swipe apart and by the the time i reached the other side of the field he was at least 100 yards behind me.

    The cut it gave at that speed was as good as if not better then my toro's and laid down a nice stripe with the stock setup.

    If i had the use of it for the whole job i figure it would knock of 4-6 hours off of the mowing time. And we all know time is money:D

    Made a believer out of me of what they claim it will do.

    I feel bad thou that i gave it back to him filthy due to the wet spots because of all the rain we've had lately.

    Now all i have to do is convince the wife that i really need a new mower right now...:)

    I believe he took a few shots of it in action (i wish i had my camera with me)

  2. Glad you liked it, but with no dealer here stocking them they are useless.

    I demoed one and didn't like it. 2 problems I had were: 1-too low to the ground and couldn't climb some of the curbs that are no problem w/ my Lazer. 2- It didn't diperse clippings nearly as well as my Lazer and yes the blades were sharp and deck was scraped clean. I liked the speed but It is useless if you have to double cut every square inch of a lawn. I got so feed up w/ the discharge I put it back on the trailer and jumped on my Lazer. I was glad I brought the Lazer along. If you have an Exmark dealer close I would suggest demoing a Lazer before you lay the bucks down for a Super Z.

    Hey LGF

    Bird Equipment in Eureka MO (SIX FLAGS) carry Hustler. At a good price.

    I just bought one 3 weeks ago. I hate to get on either Toro Z any more, that thing is one bad mower.

    I may play on one though.

    This pic shows how wet this property is, and this is the only minor compared to the other areas.
