    I started on an old Yazoo 20 yrs ago. They were slow as hell, but cut nice.

    Yes they were amazing my uncle owns one with like a 9hp rear engine rider. It is amazing the only thing that is mesed up is the oringinal tires they go flat like overnight. Great mowers wish there were more dealers around here. Don't they own zenoah?

    We have an old Yazoo 2-Stroke 21" mower, somewhere. Stupid thing still runs like a champ.

    Did you mean one of these? Hard to believe these were "state of the art" back in the day. :hammerhead:

    Wow, That is an old machine.... Cool to see though.
    I have a 52" mid max zt w/ mulch kit.
    cuts nice but ya gotta go a little slower... so I guess not much has changed.

    I still use a yazoo 26 master cut that has been retrofited with a 8 hp honda. Maybe on day I will get picks of it munching away at waist high weeds. I used a 60 inch like in the picture up until 3 years ago. I quit using it because it was slower than my ztr. My father still uses it around the house though
