    Sometimes I need to pull a landscape rake, or haul brush and firewood. I was wanting to know the towing capacity for the Z and Super Z.

    50 lbs. hitch weight and 500 lbs. rolling tow weight!

    I asked a similar question awhile back on the towing capacity. PJ responded to my post at the time. He said the Super Z had a towing capacity of 500#.

    Exactly what the above posts say, 500lbs.

    Rolling weight, not dead weight, there is a great deal of difference! :nono:

    Thanks all. Looks like I'm getting the Z 25/60 w/flex seat!

    If you are towing with a Super Z on a regular basis, like with an offset mower, etc, will it shorten the life of you hydraulic pumps (as long as you tow under 500 lbs), or are they strong enough to hold up to the extra weight?

    Thanks

    There are a lot of things to consider here....
    Slopes / hills, temperature, speed.. etc....
