    I can't believe that PG quit making the Magnum!

    It just has its place on smaller lawns and hard to get around areas.

    The new PG is WAY too complicated and I don't like having to load two tanks or the price.

    I can't really find anything to replace it with that I like. It is a very simple machine and does a great job and now I am STUCK with a 2008 unit and can't update it or replace it.

    Would love to got with a Z but it is too large, thought about the T but it is way too much $$$$ and looking at possibly getting the PG look alike (can't remember its name) but not sure I like the handles.

    Hurry up Lawn Solutions and get a machine on the market so I can buy it!

    So far I guess I am going to have the 2008 PG totally redone over the winter. It has 600+ hours on it and is starting to bother me!!!!!

    Why is the z too large?
    I have one PG in the graveyard and 2 more that are on the way. Looking to replace 2 of them with 1 z while using the pg as a back up just in case. I was thinking of the jr36. Do you not think that would be a good replacement for the pg?

    I already use the z-max on 80% of the properties that can have a machine on them.

    I already have a Z Max and a Z Jr and I love them.

    It is more of my setup then anything as I want to use it on a carrier rack.

    I should't say the Z it too big...I should have said I just wanted a smaller machine for transport and 36" gates.
    The Z Jr 36 is for sure a great replacement and that is probably the way I will go eventually.

    Between the design of the handles and the bearings in the pivot hinge, the Pathfinder is very easy to use, even loaded with fert and weed control. I replaced a 98 Pg centri this year, which still kinda works, just very tired.

    I just looked on their site again and it says "100% stainless steel construction"

    It looks exactly like a PG
