    I forgot to ask the dealer when I went the other day, but what is the difference bewteen the Mini Z and Super Mini Z. I know the Super goes faster and has a suspention seat but is that it? I know the Super is about $1,000 more than the regular Mini. If I went with just a Mini, could I get a suspention seat on it? Thx.

    The differences are...
    Larger pumps, larger wheel motors, 13 mph ground speed, suspension seat and hydro coolers with electric fan.

    Thx man. I personally cannot justify that $1,000 for the Super right now. I can live with the slower speed and not as big hydros and all. But the seat deal is getting to me. Can you get a suspention seat for a Mini?

    Yes you can purchase a suspension seat, it has a price of almost $500.00 though, and you would have to find a use for your old seat unless your dealer works something out for you.

    $500! I could almost buy a leather big truck air ride seat for that! When I demo, if the ride is that bad with a regular I might spend it though, it might not be, never know. Thx for your help Pj

    If you're cutting lawns daily the seat will pay for itself in a hurry! It makes a HUGE difference in daily use.

    If you try the Super MiniZ you'll buy it. Our SuperMiniZ is batting 100%. No one who's demoed the unit has bought anything else in our shop. I believe it's the best mower in my shop, and Hustler's not my only line. It's speed and smooth operation with the light weight make it unbelievable.

    I used the Hustler's in my lawncare operation before I opened my shop so I speak with experience as a user.

    Gautreaux thx for the advise. I want to get back to the dealer this week, but I don't know if I will be able too, he told me he would probably have both a Mini and Super Mini for me to demo by the 22nd or 23rd. I mow pretty much every afternoon after school and put in about 5 to 12 hours on Saturdays depending on the week. Hope to cut my time with the Zturn and add about 5 accounts next year. So the susp. seat would probably be well worth it.

    No.
    The Mini Z and Super Mini Z have the same exact deck.
    The full frame Hustler Z and Super Z have deeper decks.
