    I have been doing a little research on flex forks, does anybody know if any aftermarket brands that can fit a toro z?

    As I get older, I try to make things a little easier for myself. I just turned 38, and I feel every bit of it getting out of bed in the morning! Thanks in advance, Mike

    I am sorry but not aware of any flex forks to fit a Toro. I am 58 and run my Super Z at 15 mph a great deal of the time, if it were not for the flex forks and flex seat I would not be able to mow at that speed and crawl out of bed very easily. Another thing that will help everyone is I also take 6 Omega 3 fish oil soft gels everyday of my life. I come out of bed now about as well as I did when I was 40 years old, I don't have near the joint and muscle pain I did before I started taking the Omega 3.

    I think that nmez is right, I remember that thread also. Mike, I don't know if you have done this but you may want to try asking mower consultant on the hustler forum. I remember him saying that the reason they were all painted black and not hustler yellow was because hustler planned on producing them to be compatible with other mowers.

    I love the flex forks.:dancing: I have one SuperZ with them and the other without and man what a difference in the ride quality. :weightlifter: If they ever do offer them for other mowers it will be one of the best investments you can make. My body thanks me every day for that great decision.:laugh:

    Never did the flex fork thing, but can share that when I raced motorcycles. I had an accident that left me not able to walk the rest of my life....

    layed around for about a year and a half then threw the pills in the trash and a year later was walking...... dont take any meds anymore and I work 20 year old mexicians in the ground......

    but I will be checking into these flex forks

    Good luck
