    Hi,

    I went today and looked at a Super Z very nice mower but it's a little short in legroom. I'm of normal height 6'5" :) the hand levers were in the middle bolt holes, which was very comfortable height for my arms, I don't know if I would like them in the top position could be too high. When folded in I had no room to push them forward with out hitting my knees.

    Any chance of a little more legroom in the future?

    Thanks!

    Our engineers are working on making some more leg room on the Z's and Super Z's
    I will update you to when they are in production.

    I too am 6'5" and I had extensions added. I can push all the way forward now without running into my knees on my Super Z.

    Vahaus,

    Are you comfortable? I can really stretch out on my Gravely, lots of room but I guess that is the trade off the Super Z is a little more compact and you set lower so that also eats away at the leg room. I just felt cramped up and I missed my step the Gravely has for getting on and on the mower. Dang bells and whistles some of them ain’t worth a **** and some you get hooked on.

    My problem is in the gut area....lol...., having the extensions will really help you there, and for clearing your knees too.

    Yeah I'm okay. I mean its not a Cadillac, buts its not a Neon either. I'm only on it for about 2 hours MAX at a stretch but I could go much more if I had a bigger yard. I did test drive a Gravely and a Toro before I got the Hustler and at least in the case of the Toro it was the only machine I could sit on without any adjustments. The Gravely I thought was just a little different, guess I almost felt like I was going to slide off the Gravely.

    Of course the Hustler was the only one with a seatbelt and that does help in my rough back yard with the suspension seat.

    Happy Mowing

    I am told by our engineering department that they should be in production by September.
