    It has been a bit of everything small on the older one (pull out the welder)....also blown motor, turbo went out, overheating, trouble getting parts quickly. The fan also blows heat on the operator:hammerhead: sweat + dust =:cry:

    I must say without lots of details..... Ventrac made good with the latest problem.

    In Fantasy Land, This would be the best mower for you...

    To bad it is discontinued!

    I saw this thing in person at my hustler dealer one day. The thing is as huge as a car. I immediatly thought for some reason about crushing cars!:laugh:

    See attached pictures and spec sheet!

    i would use a walkbehind with a sulky. kind of dangerous around the pond,when it rains everything will run down to the pond and the z might get stuck. th walkbehind might get stuck too,but i think it will be easier to ge out.

    Another vote for the ATZ (if you can find one); I mow some crazy slopes with mine and it has performed flawlessly.
