Anyone have any hands on opinions on the PZs? I'm trying to purchase new this spring and looking at Hustler SZs, Exmark, or if I really want to travel, Scag. Found this info when on another thread. I have to say I like the way the machine looks and is built plus I do have a local dealer Since I'm looking for a 60 inch I go there. I start comparing mowers throwing out the small horse power and looking at the bigger stuff (I'm insecure) Of course I also had to look at their speed First I looked at the PZ6034FX and everything looks good and it has 12 mph forward and 6 mph rev. Acceptable. If everything stacks up like warranty, build quality, QOC, etc. I may have to take a look. Then I looked at the PZ6029D Kubota option. More is better right? And low and behold it's rated at 14 mph forward and 7 mph rev Now I see I may need to step up and consider buying my first diesel. Then..... I see this other PZ6034ZT. And I'm thinking, what the heck. Another company with their head in the wrong place making a stupid "so close to another model" model just to look like they have lots of mower options to chose from. I'm guessing it has a different seat or a spoiler for the extra $300 dollars. But no. 18 mph forward and 6 mph rev. This is faster than the SZ and Cheetah and I never hear anything about it from Huzky or owner/operators. Maybe it's top secret or new for 2012? Does anyone know of a reason not to buy a Huzky over the other big contenders out there? Any pros or cons to diesel vs gas. I know diesel cost more, have more torque, and should last longer, but when gas engines cost less up front and can go 3000-4000 hrs already, the rest of the mower is shot anyway.
