    I got a chance to use a new 36'' chopper yesterday, it has 3 blades on it now. It has a 22hp generac. I worked well a bit tipsy because it is so narrow. I have never used any other small ztrs so i cant compare it but it seemed to cut vary well.Because of the high hp it never bogged on me at all. Most of the features are the same as other silver eagles.

    Anybody else seen one yet?

    i'll try to do that. I was thinking about buying the dixie but it wasnt worth the extra $$, and it had a 36" not a 34".

    I honestly think it will be hard for anybody to come out with a better small ZTR than the PM34Z. We have one and it is built so solid and produces a nicer cut than even our Lazer. It might be just as good but better I cant immagine.

    Whats the point of a 36" ztr if they cant go through 36" gates? I have never understood that.

    If you needed something to go through 48" gates why not just get a 44"? For me I need something that will go through 36" gates, therefore the gravely 34" is my next purchase.
