    Just went and looked at a Super Z, 60" (27 hp Kholer) deck with the suspension seat.. price quoted was $7700.00 plus tax.. no mention was made of the factory rebate, I just wonder is this a fair price before the rebate, or is this a price that Id get with the rebate?

    I'm in the nashville area, looking at either a 60" deck or a 72. Dealer also pushing Xmak.. same size deck and engine.. what would you buy?

    Also, if you have suggestions and coments I'd love t hear them.. we have about 10 acres to deal with.

    The 27/60 Kohler Super Z has a MSRP of $9,899.00, the rebate price is $1,500.00 off of MSRP so it would usually sell for $8,399.00
    I would say that $7,700.00 is a great price.

    Thanks for the replys on the price, I have now looked at the List prices on the SuperZ as posted and the rebates.. I guess the price was not bad at all... I wonder though at $9899 list is that a bit on the high side for this market?

    I am still amazed at the prices of mowers in general, but then I havent had to cut a yard for probably 20 + years... now I have about 12 Acres to deal with :-(

    You are not comparing equal machines.
    The Super Z has larger pumps, wheel motors, hydro coolers (with electric fan) and a higher ground speed.
    This is a unit that has a premium price due to the premium items I have listed.
    If you compare another mfg's machine be sure to see if it has these, there are not many that do, and if they do, they are about the same price if not higher.

    If you have 12 acres to cut you better get the Super Z. Might as well have fun cutting when your doing it. The Z is the best I've been on. Awesome on large open places. Way too much fun be be called work. great cut and fast too. Very reliable machine.

    PJ, what causes two mowers with the same engine/hp to go much faster than the other? I'm figuring it must be the gears, but you figure if one has a lower setting it would have superior cutting and if one had higher gear setting (faster machine) it would have inferior cutting. This is obviously a flawed thought, set me straight.

    The higher ground speed is achieved through larger pumps and larger wheel motors, as in the Super Z, of course a larger hp engine is helpful here also.
    Deck designs are a key to higher speed cutting.
