    IZ 4217, 42 inch cut, 17 horse Kawi. It fits through privacy fence gates, when I did a survey before purchase I came up with 46.5 as the minimum from my customers and anyone else's I could measure. Since I'd never touched a Z before I put that one on a trailer I can't say if it's better or worse than anything else. It cuts well and I like it. It's bouncy though. I think I was more comfortable but slower standing on a velke. It does go backwards though.

    I can't tell for sure from the picture but it doesn't look like you have the suspension seat. Take it from someone recovering from back surgery, years of tolerating a rough ride will catch up with you.

    I have that same trailer (not really mine is a little bigger but at first glance I thought it was) and it looks like the same Toro 22" judging from what I can see of it. Noticing how you straped that in - quick tip - A rachet strap from rail to rail in front and in back will hold your ztr in place with out having to wrap it around, under, and through or hook onto places of the mower that you probably don't really want to (like control arms). Plus it is alot faster and easier to load and unload since you only have to release one strap
