Good Points. I definitely glossed over those points. I think what I'm trying to say is that still, it doesn't have a commerical rated engine, and the hydro's are only 2800's right? In most experience what usually goes first, a deck, or a transmission, and what costs more to repair/replace. Granted replacing a deck is expensive, but repairing a crack isn't that big of a deal if you know some good welders. Although the armrests are a pretty nice selling feature. I don't understand why all ZTR's don't have them standard.
