    I couldn't remember how much it weighed I was thinking over 1400lbs depending on options. But your right thats not to bad. It's getting where machines get heavier every year. I bought the Exmark Advantage because it was just over 1000lbs. But it is jerky, and does not have much reverse traction. Whats the overall lenghth of the PZ? 80" is minimum for downhill traction imo.

    I looked at the outlaw and posted a thread on it which got taken off of here. I was not impressed with it other than price it really has nothing special about it. And the fact there is not a real dealer around just hurts it even more. I do think they have improved there latest offerings but they have a long way to go and when they get there they will be in a position where they can stop trying to buy market share.

    its not terribly jerky, but its no where near as smooth as the new system they got on the higher end models, those controls are butter.

    Couple corrections on weight. They are all very close. The AOS figure is correct. They are HEAVY mowers. The diesel 35 is over 1900# The only thing that may help is they are running on 26" tires which disburse the weight a bit better but they are still quite the monster. As for the others they are all comparable to the other mfg's.

    BB Pup 60" w/31kawi = 1107
    BB Lightning 60" w/31 kawi = 1170
    BB Outlaw 60" w/31 kawi = 1263
