    Take 2 metal brackets and weld them to frame. 2. Weld a 12" pole to the bracket. 3. Take bench weights and put on pull. I have never done this but I have seen someone do it. :)

    I was just thinking about this very thing today. That is getting a real small z. On average my lawns are around 7000-10,000 s.f. I do have some 1 acre and larger lawns, but i could still use my 60" dc for those. I think the maneuverability would be lots better with a small z.
    How do you like the z cat?
