    Hey guys, Im starting up my business next spring and currently i have an opportunity to buy a Toro z master 44inch for a great price but have a few questions. Its an older model with the Kawasaki 17hp motor, 840 hours, NEW- tires, coils, starter relays, belts battery and blades. I was wondering if anyone had experience with this mower? How does it cut, the 17 horsepower seems a little small but maybe thats just me, any help appreciated. thanks

    I just bought the same mower 2 weeks ago, and my guys love it. It is fast and mowers nice. Same as our exmarks. Iam not sure what you are spending. I bought mine with a vac bagging system for $1800.00 It has 1100 hours on it.

    Ok cool, sounds good. Its 2200 OBO i'd say if i could get it for 2,000 and use it for a few years and get 1600 - 1800 out of it id be perfectly happy

    You will be happy with it. We like it because it will fit into a 48'' gate..
