Well, I'd give it a 'B'. Not sure which of those you might be happier with. Try both. The single hydro is nice and smooth. It's certainly not your typical IZT by any means. It's very heavy duty. Compairing the two, I see no reason to go one over the other.Originally posted by Dbutsack
Well, how do you like it? I'm thinking this machine or the Hustler Super Mini. I like the drive shaft idea. How's the single hydrostat compared to the split motors and pumps? Hows the cut? How's the hill holding? Thanks
Oh.... I'll tell ya right now, the Toro Z500 23/60" ain't gonna haul through tuff cutting or tall growth like the ZG23 does. See my statement in my previous reply. If you are considering a 60" as small as I would go is a 25hp Kawi or 27hp Kohler.Originally posted by bluhvin
Regarding the new ZG23, how do you like it? How does it compare to the Hustler Super Z of roughly the same horsepower (but 60 inch cut)? or the Toro Z500 (60 inch cut)?
I noticed in the spec that the speed of the blades is 16,000 fpm, but I think I saw that the Hustler and Toro mowers have more of a maxed out blade speed of like 19,000 fpm. Any thoughts on blade speed being sufficient for cutting zoysia (empire) grass for example versus the same grass cut with the Hustler or Toro?
