    TLS- I hope you plan to post a lot of pics of both the machine and the QOC. It's not that the UC cut is something new, but it is different being cut at 3 different RPM settings of the RED system.

    BTW- You're gonna have to change your equipment list in your sig now.

    Shoot! Here I thought it was EFI.

    I thought I had a great idea and used the dealer locator for the closest CA dealer to me, thinking I could buy a EFI and bring it back. The dealers, at least in northern CA, don't even show the Kohler available to order on a SZ. This dealer is also an Exmark dealer and recommended strongly staying with a Kawi. Said he's seeing the Kohlers fail from overheating. Can't keep them cool enough. Not what we want to here!

    And they don't offer the financing the other big three offer (Hustler, Exmark, Scagg). Best they offered me was .4% for 48 with 20% down. Sheffield is doing 0 down 0 interest 48.

    I don't know why they are offering the crappy financing this year. In the last two years they offered 0% for 48 or 36 mo's and several other offers in there that were close to that. This year not so much.:rolleyes:

    Yes, lots of pictures to come. I hope I have time to take some though. This rain is on and off the next few days.

    This 29 Kawi on the loaner is beat, but really seems lacking in power. When I demod it a few years ago it had plenty of power.

    The eXmark is so much more compact as well. Trim ability is way better as well.

    Good luck with the machine mate! Yep, lot of pics!
    We dont have Exmark over here but do have Toro. A friend has one, its been worked VERY hard with very few problems. Think he has over 2000hrs on it now.

    Will do.

    The trimmability is like night and day. The eXmark deck is offset to the trimside about 3 more inches then the SuperZ is. This helps in SO many ways...from cutting around a tree ring (external), to turning out of an enclosed area (internal).

    I am also able to tuck around sign posts between the rear trimside and the rear tire.

    The isolated seat mount is also nice. This loaner just has a standard seat, but the isolators make it halfway liveable even without a suspension seat.

    This machine has the newest cutting edge technology, the power and fuel efficiency should be great, really looking forward to your thoughts after operating the mower a few days. The implementation of the E-Gov with fuel injection should make the mower feel much more powerful than its rated hp.
