    They are way over priced ( AN EXMARK TRADE MARK ) but look like they do a great cut. My super Z for shaded St.Augustine lots is not going to cut it.

    I need something more turf freindly and my scags and Lesco are getting long in the tooth.

    I've got a few of them . They are awesome. I can't believe more LCO's don't have them. It does cut better than my Super Z (older deck).

    They're awesome. Great build, great cut, enough power. A lot of cutters around me have them.

    The deck on the new Super Z cut beautiful a much nicer cut than any of my machines but it is still a Z turn and my midsized lesco does a much nicer job. In alot of conditions for a high end cut the 0 turn big riders don't cut it!

    The 60 turf tracer looks like the best tracer , it really fills the chasses out nice,the 52 looks like it would scalp more than the 60 turf tracer?

    The dealer wanted 6500 for one and I bought my demo Super Z 60 XR 7 for 6999 ,which one are you going to take? then add a velke and you are up to 7000. For a walk mower???????????? thats a little high, Exmark has priced themselves right out of the market!

    You'd still have to finesse it around turns, as a 60" TT isn't nearly as light as say a 48" belt drive.

    A 60 Turf Tracer and a Super Z makes for one bada$$ combo. Hustler seems to not want to make a 60 inch WB/ a 54 yea but not a 60? That is an odd decision, if they did I'd probably have bought a lot them. When 60 inches is the industry standard why only offer a 54:hammerhead:

    That is the thing 60' walk mowers work great and do a much better cut than a Zero turn ever dreamed of. Somebody needs to make a reasonably priced say under 5000$ machine and do it right, big 22" wheels or 20's.

    I was just comparing the cut on my Hustler to the midsizes and the deck on the Justler is great the tractor part isn't.

    I always use my 61 walkbehind Scag on this one big shadded 1 acre St.Agustine lawn I do and this time I cut it with the Hustler and guess what the home owner came out to make sure I did not tear the grass up.

    She is very familar with the brutality of 0 turns on shadded StAugustine.

    As impressed as I am with the Hustler for a mower where you just blowem out and never look back my midsize walkmowers with the Lesco velke's will tear that mower a new a$$ in small to midsized residentials. By the time I slow down to make sure I do not tear the lawns up the walkmowers are o

By the time I slow down to make sure I do not tear the lawns up the walkmowers are on the trailor ready to move one. You really can fly around in alot of situations where you have to tread on egg shells on the z turn.
