    I was wondering if any of you know a good ZTR that has like a 30" deck.
    (30 - 36 will work) I haven't really researched it yet. I was in a fenced in back yard today that got me thinking. Any brand, I'm open to suggestions. Thanks :waving:

    GO GRAVELY W00T W00T W00T! Sounds like you want a gravely 34z. Nice compact solid mower.

    Scag makes a 36 ztr called the Z-Cat. We have two Tiger Cubs and Scag makes good equipment.

    Exmark is coming out with a 34 next year, encore has one so does dixie chopper, and Gravely. They are worth so much in time and fatigue savings. You would not beleive the difference they make without using one for a while. Some people who havent used one will tell you what a waste it is, but find me someone who has one and doesnt love it. You cant. Here is mine.

    I love my 44z, a little bigger than you are looking for but it has proven the gravely name to me. Stay away from encore equipment; they are true chunks of $hit

    I am not sure about that statement about encore. Here they are very respected and trouble free. I know I have a partner who uses one very hard with some other machines and has no issues with the machine. I also have a friend who sold a 36" walk and bought a z34 encore and loves it. I have demoed several brands and I feel all of them are good it just boiles down to preferrence and support!

    I need the same thing. I am seriously looking at the Wright Stander. As small as a 32" or 36" deck.

    The eXmark Phazer comes in a 34 and a 44 and is on their website now, so I assume that it is available now or will be shortly, (first of the year).
