    $1,915.00 was the total.

    I traded in a 2003 Z Master 44" 18hp Kohler with a SFS deck (850hrs) and a 2007 Z Master 34" 19hp Kawasaki with a Turboforce deck (25hrs). They dealer gave me $7,000 for my 2 mowers, so I paid about $8,915 for the new unit.

    I hope you're cutting 2ft high grass everywhere with that, otherwise you're just wasting money on fuel. I have a 50" Gravely with a 20hp Vanguard. One time I borrowed a 50" Gravely with a 25hp Kohler and I couldn't make it through the day without refilling the tanks. Horsepower can be a good replacement for other shortfalls though.

    every time I diss toro somebody says "oh, but there made by exmark". I don't care who makes them, you can tell at first glance they cut a lot of corners in design. there just not built for the long haul. how did you have a 07 34" to trade?? you can test drive before you buy, if the dealer doesn't have the one you wanna try call the company rep and they will bring one right to your door step. I'd hate to see you trade this one with 50 hr's on it.

    Some of you guys talk about fuel consumption like it would break the bank to buy a few extra gallons a week.
