    For a ZTR, check out www.cyclonerake.com

    You can order a free video too.

    You can do a search here for input from guys that own them. They seem to like them.

    ...with much greater speed and 5 times the capacity. This thing WOULD take alot of modification to work commercially, though. The 6 hp Premier looks to be the only suitable model for a Z because their "commercial" model is a trailering type. One thing that would have to be done to put on a Z, would be to weld a bigger and thicker bracket on the front. The one on there just isn't wide enough to have enough leverage to swing it around. I agree with what was said above...the Cycone Rake looks to be a much better bet. I'm looking into one right now, but the package I'm looking at is coming in at just over 2 grand.

    I order a DR premier with 6 hp on Monday. Because it has a live time warranty on the impeller, along with the sharding of meaterial. The engine on both are set up for low-temperature startes. The hitch on DR Premier and Cyclone Rake are the same. I also like the hard sides of the box, the centrifugal separtor system and the chiper as well. Befor you pull with your ZTR you need to know if you can. You cannot with some of them.

    they will not sell it to you if you have a ZTR, and it voids all warranties even if you do get one...
