    How is the 4" deep deck doing on your mini z with the 42" deck on it. I have found that this mower has some good points to it but the 4" deep deck will not handle deep grass that we get. the 5" try deck has a hard time in the deep stuff.

    Is hustler going to improve the depth of the deck on that mower????

    The 36 / 42 Mini Z has been out since spring and cut in many conditions and we don't hear a lot of complaints on it and that includes the cut.
    Deeper isn't always better.

    My gravely walk behind cut great this past spring because of the 5.4" deck and a blade change. the deeper deck proses the grass better, even the try at 5" has a hard time with the taller stuff where the ultra at 5.5 would walk threw it.

    I guess i just need to try one this coming spring. OH how have the IZT 2800's working out??

    Demo one and you will see how well it works for you.
    The ZT2800 hydro's have been great.

    I'm not afraid of the izt2800's. i'll see what i can do, i do like however to buy before spring. so i will not be able to test one until the season starts.
