    Anyone have any decent close up detail pictures of this animal and how it works?

    I gotta think using one would be better then the tractor really. How it lifts up and how easy it is to take on and off is a biggy for me.

    RATS. That would have been cool. No snow right now, but there will be sure as the world.

    I found a company that makes a universal unit that you can use your legs to lift it. Seems interesting, but I'm not sure how they compare.

    I have a tractor for plowing, but if one of these plows like they mow, this is a no brainer.

    I have the complete manual on it for you, plenty of close up pictures and such.
    E-mail me and I will e-mail it back to you, its to large to post here.

    Just bought 4 brand new XR7 2-60's and 2-72's and put the Hustler plows on two of them. I used them on our last snow and they work great. We put chains on both tractors. One suggestion though, we put a plow on a 60 and a 72, the 72 kept falling of of some walks because of the wider stance so we had our dealer put the mow deck back on and put it on the other 60 machine.

    Super Z's are what we bought. Our walkers were worn out and I wanted more production(=speed).

    Seems like they'd almost have to have chains. My Z spins in wet grass really.
    I'm not crazy about having to take the deck off either. However, if it's all that and a bag of chips I guess it's worth the effort.

    Before I make a haul to my nearest dealer, what's the going rate on one?

    Snow Blade, Hustler Z / Super Z part # 927582 MSRP = $1,100.00 plus S+H
    Check with the dealer for the exact price.

    Hmm...that's more then I was thinking.

    http://www.countryztr.com/ has one that's cheaper and doesn't require the deck to be taken off. However, I'm not sure how good it works either. Get what you pay for maybe.

    Exactly what I was going to say.
