Yesterday I demoed (just around the parking lot, no cutting) the new Bunton walkbehind with Z controls. These are just like the controls on a rider. (Let me know if you need to see a pic of it.) Overall, I liked the machine a lot. There seems to be NO pressure on the hands, arms, wrists, at all. I could get totally smooth, slow turns on turf with no divots. The machine DID feel a bit touchy to me, I think that may be because I wasn't totally used to it, only demoed it for about 30 minutes. I haven't used riders either, so am not used to ZTR controls. Does anyone else have one of these Bunton walks with the Z controls? How do you like it? I have an ExM ECS right now, it's just too hard on the hands. So I think next year it will be the Bunton or the Cub Cadet, which I have not demoed yet.
