    Hey guys, I am more convinced every year that my future holds a diesel ZTR because of all the good stories of better torque, longevity, low maintenence,etc. I was wondering if Hustler plans on offering a diesel on the new Super Z any time soon and would it still have the same speed?15mph! I looked at my first up close view of a Super Z yesterday and that thing is pretty awesome looking. As heavy duty as it is built I would like to have an engine that can perhaps go 2-4000 hrs as well. I know that many a gas engine is supposed to last that long but in the real world (especially when you have to cut foot tall grass or wet grass often) I hear of many motors dieying sooner than they should(in my opinion) like with only 500-1000 hours. A little overkill in equipment has never hurt me. Thanks

    Plans are to have water-cooled gas and diesel models for next Spring.
