    While shopping for a new Super Z I had a Toro dealer try to convince me that you couldn't possibly take advantage of the Super Z's 15 mph speed while mowing, any truth to this? I expect not to be at full speed while on an incline, rough surface or tall grass-but for regular mowing conditions I was hoping I could mow at top speed and still produce a qaulity cut. What is your experience?

    There are situtations that you can take full advantage of 15mph mowing.
    There are also situations that you will not, but you will mow faster than any other mower on the market, and you will notice a large increase in production.
    Your best bet is to demo the Hustler Super Z, and then demo the others, or demo the others first then ours.
    I am very confident a Super Z will be your mower of choice after a day of demo mowing.
    Let me know if you need a demo, if your dealer does not have one.

    I would say on average you will mow a little bit above 3/4 speed, but not full speed. A little over 3/4 speed on a super z is still faster than anyone else.

    Like the last Pj suggested, best bet is to demo one. I did and now I am a proud owner.
