    I'm using a demo Super Z for the weekend and thinking about buying it. It has a 31 horse eng, flex forks and suspension seat. The problem i'm having is getting enough leg room. Is there anyway to raise or move the seat back further?
    Another thing, the dealer is asking $7995.00 for the unit. It has 70 hrs. on it currently. Is this a good buy?

    If you had the seat all the way back, thats all you have.
    Adding a Flex Seat may help a little, as it sits a touch higher.
    You can adjust the control levers and even add a set of extensions to them to help with knee clearance.
    Pricing... that is reasonable, the mower has a MSRP of $11,989.00

    On the 31 machines there is a section of angle iron bolted to the seat pan.. I removed this and got more seat travel.. Be aware of the air filter canister as cleareance can be tight.. I'm 6'7" and need all the room I can get, I slid the canister back further in the braket for some xtra room.
