    It might be nice if Bunton had a website that was informative. The only things I could turn up was a link from Textron that had minimal information and no info on the new steering system.

    I feel like a freakin' marketing wizard compared to the guys at some of these companies. It's almost like they don't want to sell you a mower. : )

    I have a Bunton 36" WB Hydro w/17 HP Kaw and absolutely love it. I use it for my trim work or smaller stuff and yards with gates but man, what a nice machine. I took a demo on one and bought it right away.

    The new Z-Controls are a loop grip handles much like that of a
    ZTR Independent Speed levers that control power to each wheel

    Well, now that you've graduated away from Pistol grips, it'll only take another year are two until you buy a machine that couples both of those levers together and lets you do everything with only one hand, and much easier, too....................
    Oh, but they already make it...... Hustler:confused:

    Is there any info on the web about this new product? Bunton's website I found didn't have squat.

    Nevermind, I just found a dealer. Tifton Georgia. I think that's about as far away as you can get and still be in the same state.

    Pete, this was a post about the bunton. But now that you mention it, Ron knows all about the Hustlers. He is THE Hustler dealer here in Memphis. :)

    That is a nice change from walk behind to ZTR. You are definitely moving up in the world.

    OK.... so IOW, instead of putting out a question/suggestion about the Bunton and waiting for input, he's actually doing a bit of advertising...... Sorry, I didn't know.......
