I so like the Kohlers better, kawas just don't revvv like Kohlers and they consume fuel like the space shuttle, what's the trick to turn them up, anyone know?
Oh yeah, suggestions: I so like how the rubber chute is NOT spring-loaded (toro wb's rubber chutes are, I've always removed that stupid spring), but is there something that could be done to keep them UP? They usually stay down (and if they don't it's easy to pop it), but it is annoying they tend to fall down during certain turns / bumps and I have to disengage blades and seat belt just to pull it back up). I might hook a string to it one day
I still think 4 small shock absorbers or springs to help keep the deck DOWN during high speed mowing might be helpful... Once I get going full stick on most yards, the numerous bumps literally start the deck to 'floating,' (as in, once it starts floating it doesn't settle down anymore) part of the reason why I feel it streaks at top speed.
A slightly longer blade bolt to fit some washers so one can adjust blade height by bringing the blade down from up under the deck could be helpful for those of us who don't care for recessed blades.
Last but not least, Z's are hydraulic... Why is there not a single Z that is equipped to handle attachments such as a shovel or a backhoe, so it could act as a mini tractor? Understood, the front casters might have some issues with weight support, but hydraulic attachments and added function would be so super.
Very pleased, great machine.
