nice mower but 15K thats alot of change to fork out for a mower, when one could get 2 ZTR's gas for less than that.........so my question is what makes diesel mowers better than gas ones... i know there are a few companies out the that make them but why... whats the advantage other than mower torque hp rpm ect.ect. its not like im pulling my trailer around with it ya know... im just curious thats all not trying to sound all jumpy on ur case or nothin ive just never been explained.... i do like the look of the mower though clean lines, smooth flowing.... but why didnt that call it "Z Super Diesel" ( say it real fast ) !!!! LOL
I saw it at the EXPO in Louisville this past weekend. That thing was fast! I also saw your walkbehind that tips up for gates. That was really a great idea.
One of the major ones in my opinion would be engine life.
Usually you can get a lot more hours, or in a vehicle case miles, on a diesel than a gasser.
1800 pounds of grass cutting and rut making machine for only 16,000 dollars. I think I'll pass.
Isnt weight near 1600lbs? I was expecting some better tires to support that weight. I can get a 50hp DC turbo diesel for 15k, but the CAT motor is cool. Not trying to bash, but I think a 10-11.5k price tag would be about right.
Am I reading the specs correctly - is there no trim edge on the 60" model?
