    I'm about to be a Z owner I think.. I've weighed all the options, and I'm headed in that direction...

    so far I like the sales people.. as far as the machine goes.. based on specs, and my experience... I'd like to see a machine with a lower center of gravity.. (maybe a sit down) and an engine that will last as long as the hydrostat... Say.. deisel? :)

    I'm a long time grasshopper fan.. I want to see a ride on built like that... the 21hp desiel engines run FOREVER on my mowers.. We have one from 1996 with thousonds of hours on it.. still runs like new.. and the center of gravity is a 9 inches.. it can climb any hill that doesn't require repelling gear :) It's just too bad it's so HUGE!

    I actually brought the Idea up about a diesel. I remember asking Brent and he just gave me this look and said don't give Tom any ideas! Adding a diesel engine would add a lot of cost to the machine. I'm sure some guys would be willing to pay the extra but not sure that would be a big selling point. Here is another idea diesel with a turbo, nothing like a little over kill.

    If you build it they will come.

    think about the wieght of that option, as much as i love diesels i would opt not for that one. Rayholio, go for the zspray, i promise you wil not be disapointed at all. very productive and they have just the machine for your needs, that is what i like best, other companies have the same thing, which is used for big and small, well so do zsprays except you truely can customize to the size lawns you treat most often. good luck!
