    The old Super Z wheel motors were White and failed left and right and had real good spec, it's not the torque but the torque to RPM tire size speed ratio.

    What you put there means nothing, the 280 Parker on paper look no better than the old White and maybe they are not but they have a hot shuttle to lower temp and the pumps are what they say makes this system the best by ZTR standards. To the people who fix them they say the system is just what is acceptable on a good piece of equipment.


    How many RPM does the White turn, the Parker 280 turn 260.

    Dulleys on a ZTR should go good in bad conditions. I just went back and looked at the other Husky line and the smaller Kubota lines. There are a lot of really nice mowers these days.
