    We still have an old 32 inch WB. 1998 its used for residential lawns with small gates. It still runs like a champ and leaves a nice cut ! Iam not sure about there ZTR mowers. Havent seen any around here I have seen WB mowers thou and the guys who run them say they are Nice

    I had a mega max. Here goes the bad! Spindles are junk the deck is weak in the top plate area. You cannot keep anti scalp wheels on it! The steering dampners are junk But they have improved them! There is terrible blow out in front of the deck! Parking breaks could be better. the safet switch on the brake is another weak point! The biggest problem is the distribution of them which here anyways is carswell dist. Hopefully you do not have them as a dist.! Bye the way I hope that honda is cheap because they quit making those three years ago!

    They look pretty cheesy, but we got one in at the shop last week.......A front deck zero turn mower 1948 model all original and the guy still uses it!! Called Yazoo to get a part, and the company offered to buy it for $5000!! The company reps are coming down to pick it up next week....lol!!

    i have owned this exact mower.. my thoughts..
    cuts good, engines good but it is a little underpowered. a solid machine for the price but has weak points too.. the parking brake like other guy said. you cant adjust it far enough to make work right and thread and length of bolt cannot be bought ANYWHERE. my dealer had to make me one. next this mower used to beat me up and i would cramp up on it. you just never felt confortable on it.
    overall:
    if price was right i would buy one again but if same price as others i would buy something else.

    If that price includes a suspension seat then maybe! Otherwise there are better choices out there for just a few dollars more!

    after reading thats what i thought so i guess i'll stay with exmark the kees dealer told me they were last years model. here i found out 3 years old that's why i post here. honesty goes a long way he should have told me how old they were
