    I have 3 260Z machines, bought new 1 per year over the last three years. They are very productive (hydraulic deck lift), and relatively inexpensive to own and operate.

    My dealer mentioned a diesel Z coming out. Anyone heard of it yet. Barry?

    The diesel seems to be a hit with the LCO's we have had try it.

    Any LCO that has not run a diesel should at least try one. If they mow 40 hrs per week, fuel and maintainance will pay for the diesel in 1 year. The diesels they make (probably any brand will run upwards of 10,000 hrs) no spark plugs, no carburator cleanings and overhauls, just keep the fuel and air clean and go like hell. Also they hold in the range of 3 qts. of oil, and oil changes are around 150-250 hrs instead of 50 hrs. They have more lugging power, and the list goes on - Thanks, Brad
