    I am in the market for a ZTR I was thinking of origionally buying a Stand on Machine but I am now thinking of a ZTR and a wb like a 32 or 36 Exmark. I am not sure yet which ZTR to buy Closest dealers other than SCAG are a Ways away (200) miles.
    Please vote on this poll. If I go 52" I am thinking the Exmark Lazer Z HP 23 Kawasaki or the Hustler Super Mini Z 52" w/ 25 Kawasaki.

    If I go the 60" I am thinking the Exmark Liquid Cooled 27 Kawasaki.

    I left out Ferris and Great Dane because they don't ofer bagging systems for the Models I am interested in

    Also do you see any disadvantage to the 52 vs. 60 other than cut width ? I am Thinking maybe just go with the 60 and forget the 52 ? Please vote, Also this machine will only be used on a few commercial properties as I don't have any residential properties where this sized machine could be used ! I thought about just getting a 32" wb and use it all the time and eliminate the 21" machines alltogather

    I never thought I'd say this but if you have a good dealer who stocks parts, go look at a Husky. We have a new dealer that carries Husqvarna now and they have about three locations that all stock spindles!

    I have the 52" HP and the ultra vac for leaf season. The HP will hold hills. I mean hold hills. The cut is great and the kawi has a lot of torque. Its a beast.

    The Hustler should be a good machine also. If I was going to buy anything other than eXmark it would be a Hustler.

    Demo both machines on YOUR properties. Find the one that works best under your circumstances and which you like better.

    Hey musselman, how do you like the 62" SD. does it work better than rear discharging under the right conditions? Thinking about getting a SD deck, any thoughts? thanks.

    IB.....if you think that you like the Husky mowers..buy a FD Kees instead...same product at much lower costs

    I advise staying away from this outdated product myself...there are much better choices for the same kind of money!!
