Well I finally broke down and bought a Z. I got a Hustler Super Mini Z 52 in with the 25 Kawasaki. This is one mean machine. I can't get over how fast the thing goes, its scary! I have a few account where I can really crank it up and cut at almost top speed. I used it in the rain one day and was impressed with the cut. I wish I had bought this thing a long time ago. I feel for the price its a pretty good deal, $7295. Almost makes mowing fun again.
