    I've seen them in magazines but have never seen them in person until yesterday. I stumbled accross a dealer that had the whole line. I was kind of impressed with the Tank (M60). It appeared to be well built and had a lot of features that I didn't remember being on the others. Anybody have any thoughts or experience with these?

    We have two M60's and a 72", they are great!!!!!!!!!! One of the 60's has over 800 hours and nothing gone wrong. They are as good as any I think

    I too have looked at these now for a couple of years. I'm a homeowner, but looking to upgrade to a Z in the future. I'd look at the Lesco units as well as they are identical to the Cub's but cheaper. I believe they are running some good specials on them as well. I think they provide quite a lot of bang for the buck.

    DWOST is correct. The Lesco machine is the same as the tank. I just got mine today. Ill have pics tomarrow.

    the Cub is not exactly identical to the Lesco. The cub uses a Timken spindle and the engine sets defferently. I would agree though that everything else besides minor details are the same and they are both made by MTD.
