Most of the tanks are very well built machines. Beware though, the cheapest of the line, the M50 model is a residential unit in Tank clothing. It has the same engine, integrated drives and deck as their residential Z-Force unit.

The new ZWing 48 mower is a hybrid with a fold up deck and the deck design has not yet been worked out, don't buy one until next year.

All the other tanks which include the M48, M52, M60 and M72 appear to be good units, with fabricated decks and an impressive individual pump and wheel motor assembly that can be swapped as a unit. The engine choices are also very good.

Be sure you get a better CC dealer than I did. I ended up baling out of my CC, not so much because of the unit as the dealer.

Good luck,
Doc

Yeah they do seem built. It's funny that mtd can make such good mowers. I still don't know where I'm going to live and I might move being in the katrina disaster.

The only complaint I've heard was the quality of cut wasn't good. A demo would be the way to find out if you like it or not.

I've got a Tank 52 and it's built solid. had it for almost two years now and nothing at all for problems. Do only about 20-25 yards a week. Hard to get blades for it. As others had said find a good dealer because the one I have sucks. Went to another dealer 1 hour away. I would get another one if a good dealer was closer.Solid ZTR's for sure. The "wing" looks like a good idea, but let it weed out the pros and cons first few years. Mine has got the armrest and kaw engine. LOVE IT

Here's where I get my blades for the 60's I have. Do you have the 3/4" center hole.
