Anyone out there have a Z34? I bought one last year, and love it! You can't cut yards with a slope, but all others are game.The only trouble i have is training someone to use it RIGHT!!! It cuts clean and fast. My guys don't tire out,we can go as long the trimmer man can hold out. I know alot of you guys dont like Encores, but mine has made me Money. The Kawi engine is as tough as nails (change oil and filters) hopefully it will last. "Do one Thing Do it Well"
