Is it replacing another mower or an additional unit? Curious how the 997r fits into your operation. 72" deck? Good dealer incentives?Rather than change my oil very early, I like to change my oil filter after about 8-10 hours or 75-100 miles on my motorcycles. This is especially true in my motorcycles that share engine oil with their transmission. Just ordered a Z997R can't wait to use that toy!
Not replacing another mower, I'm relegating my 2014 Super Z HD 72" Kawi 1000 side discharge to rougher areas of my property. The new 72" Z is for my 6 acres of actual "grass" up here in the PNW. We rarely get really dry grass to mow up here and I'm switching to rear discharge. I've tried every blade combination and used a mulch kit, but that only works about 2 months of the year. I mow 7-8 months and with side discharge I get LOTS of pseudo wind-rowing and clumping.Is it replacing another mower or an additional unit? Curious how the 997r fits into your operation. 72" deck?

Thanks, I know Hustler sends it's rear discharge over nearly the whole width of the deck, many do relatively narrow channels, concentrating the clippings. Hustler doesn't do EFI or Tweels on the rear discharge decks, air filled turf tires and the carb Kawasaki only. Put it this way, it's not going to be worse, we live in a weather convergence zone, we get wet when others a mile or two to the north and south are dry. I'm going to try to mulch again mid June on and refine things.Hope the rear discharge works out for you. From all accounts a rear discharge will windrow worse than a side discharge (but thats assuming same deck style), because side discharge can throw the clippings over a wider swathe than going straight out the rear.
