    A few things, we showed them at Expo and GIE.
    The Flex Seat is coming.
    Yanmar powered 54" Hustler Z.
    Updated ATZ.
    Updated FasTrak's
    I hear of more hp coming sometime next year, but who knows what and when.....
    In regards to the Hustler Z and Super Z, no major changes, they got the new XR-7 last season.

    What's the power rating of the Yanmar and why only on the 54"?

    Yanmar does not put a HP rating on their engines.
    It is a 749 cc engine, it is adequate for the 54" deck from what we see in our testing.
    Here is a link to Yanmar's website with the information on this engine > http://www.yanmar.com/store/item.asp?ITEM_ID=94&DEPARTMENT_ID=60

    Did John Deere put the 31 hp rating on the Yanmar they use then? Why wouldn't they rate them, that doesn't make sense to me?

    Hey Pj Any suggested retail yet for the Yanmar? GREAT Idea w/the diesel!! Got a new Super coming for '07 but really like the TOTAL package w/the diesel for my new one in '08. That is my idea of a business plan..........:)

    That is something you would have to ask JD and Yanmar.
    I have no idea why they wont publish a hp rating, probably a legal thing...
    It doesn't make sense to me either.

    No pricing yet, sorry.
    The Yanmar diesel is only going to be offered in the Hustler Z, not the Super Z, so get your new Super first.
