I am looking to buy a new ZTR mower but are getting confused on all the options. Test drove the Super Z Diesel and what a machine loved it but as a down side it was big and very heavy 1850lb with 60" deck. The super Z 28/60 efi seams a good option but has belt drive and is that enough power? The engine is the same size as in my walker but is rated at 26 hp I run that with a 52" deck and it only just has enough power in long grass, and it only does 6 mph. Can't see how 28 (claimed) is enough with 15 mph! and 60" Also looking at the Kubota ZD28 shaft drive plenty of power (diesel) and only 1 belt the fan belt! Has anyone any opinions on the best option? Down here the Super Z is $24995 and the Kubota $29500 so serious money but I want something that is reliable and simple maintenance. Too many belts on the Hustler worries me but for $4000 + saving that helps my worry. Anyone know the differences in power loss with belts v's shaft v's hydraulic ?
