    I went to the Hustler web sight and printed out the specs on the Super Z. They are as follows for blade tip speeds.

    52 in: 18,900 fpm
    60 in: 18,350 fpm
    72 in: 18,800 fpm

    I can understand why the 60 " would be less than the 52" , but why is the 72" faster than the 60"? I,m considering a Super Z with the 60" deck, but I also want maximum blade tip speed for the better cut.

    Which engine is used to figure these speeds?

    Does not matter what engine is used, the blade tip speed is the same no matter what engine is installed on a particular unit.
    As to the question on the blade tip speed difference on the 60", I will have to get a answer on that one, I will e-mail the department and find out and post an answer for you as soon as I have it.
