    just busted the 20 hr mark on mine, I love it, suprisingly confortable even being on it about 3 hrs straigh on the same lawn. cuts great, and I love the deck hight adjustment,its done by a crank and you can make some seriously small adjustments to match another mower or just level out an area. I have no complaints on it yet except the price lol, but I guess its about the ame roughly as a regular z

    my bad it was $7000 for the 48" 20 h.p. your right. i was looking at something else:confused: Im just not sure how it would feel out working. I drove the one at my dealer around the parking lot but that doesnt compare to grass, bumps, hills ect.

    I have a snapper pro s75x, its the same, just without front suspension. I love the design it's very comfortable, nimble, and fast, Hold hills as good as any z if you learn how.
