    Vipermanz - the joystick control is like computer games; one stick controls both drive wheels - Snapper also uses this setup, you can do a search to find more comments about it.
  3. man, that is one heck of a big / ugly mower.

    I toyed around with one of their Z's when I was in KY. Not bad, it was built like a tank. There diesel seems to be a fair deal, and the prices are comparable to Kubota. Here are the prices (adobe) for the Gas models. http://www.bhmfg.com/mower price list.pdf

    my uncle had a schweiss like 15 years ago. Was a cool deal with that joystick...at a time when we were using lawn tractors to mow at the farm, my uncle had a very innovative machine.....
