    What do you want to watch out for? I can not wait for you to get it. are you still going to get a blower. you should also consider buying a edger it will save you a lot of time. It is going to be awesome. Have you ever driven a z before. If not start on your driveway and just go back and forth then cut your mowing time in half that is what I did When I got my Z.

    I have been on some pretty steep sides of ditches. Remember to always have the z pointing up the hill. Also remember that z's get stuck easily and they are a to get out. I have a few stories. I hit a soft spot of sand and I was on the side of a drainage ditch and it just dug down like I hit a hole. I had to use a friends gas golf cart that just happened to pass by boy the owners of that house got a kick out of that it just pissed me off more.

    You will regret not getting the Turbo Force deck. They cut so much better than the normal decks.
