    Does anyone have a suggestion on weather or not this would be a good deal? I can get a super z with the 25horse kawasaki for 7k with a 52in deck. It is a last years model and I thought the price sounded right. I have started to waver since reading some of the posts on here about power. Is the 25 horse kawa powerful enough to run the 52in deck? I will not be mowing a whole lot, somewhere's in the neighborhood of about 1 acre a week with no steep hills and then possible about 3 acres per month of rough grass for my mother in law. I thought that the mower would be plenty, but just having some questions. Can someone alleviate my fears that this mower would be good for what I need? Thanks, RG

    25 is enough for a 52" Super Z, and for the amount you will be mowing this mower will be great, a bit overkill maybe, but for that price I would buy it also.
    Is it a Super Mini Z or a Super Z? either way its a great deal.

    Talked to the man again today and he will do either the super mini z or the super z for the same price. I just need to find out which one that I want. RG

    The SMZ will have deck trim, where the Super Z will not, that is something to consider.

    That is my problem right now. I am trying to decide between getting the one with the extra trim or no trim. The Super Mini Z has the same engine the same deck and a little smaller pumps but with less weight. I am starting to lean to the smz as of right now. Would there be a reason to go with the full size super z other than the extra 2mph? Thanks, RG

    If you are working on hills the Super Z would be a better choice, it has a wider frame and stance, it will handle slopes better.
    Other than that its a toss up to me.

    Then it is still a toss up for you, either machine will work great.
    The only thing that sways me at this point is the trim side capability of the Super Mini Z.
