    I have 2 of them. A 2003 and 2004. Both with the 24hp Honda motor.
    I can't really think of anything bad. Both have the suspension seat, so the ride is good. The cut quality is good, the hydros are very smooth, no jerky motions to it. They do great on hills. Holds 12 or 13 gallons of gas. Very well built and a good warranty.
    You won't be dissapointed.

    Ihave a Z with 24 HP Honda. Great quallity, well built. I have had no problems. One suggestion is : "There is no substitute for horsepower", especially if you willl be using in commercial application. Bigger is better!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2004 I have a 52" super Z and love it. I did talk to a guy that was having some minor service work done to his which was a 70" EFI, he was loaned a 70" carburated model same size engine, he said he wouldn't go back to the carburated model. He said the powerband is much more consistant, and can believe him. I Think my next one will be an EFI as well. Mine has plenty of power, but EFI seems to be a better choice. Hope this helps!

    We have several Super Zs that have worked out well for us. Can't say anything bad about these machines. I will however suggest a dealer because they have always and I do mean always been great, even if I didn't buy my machine from them. They are Pro Mower in Warren. Mike & John are the best. I truly feel they care about the customer and do the best they can to satisfy each and every one. I can't say enough.... Kudos to ya Pro Mower!!!!
