    Got my first ZTR friday.I just can't believe how much faster it is than my 17/48 walk behind.If its smooth,you can really MOW 10mph.and the distance it throws the clippings is really something.I still don't think it can handle hills as good as my w/b,but when I get a little better (or braver)we'll see.I've been grinning 3 days now.:D :D

    Congrats on the new toy, I mean TOOL.. yeah, tool... thats what I meant to say!

    So tell us... What exactly did ya get?!?!?

    Its nice to mow a place and not dread walking more to trim and blow........

    When I got my Z... The time to do my own lawn went from 2 hours to mow only with the belt drive WB, to 1 1/2 hrs to mow/trim & blow!

    Congrats I know how you feel! I just bought a 52" Scag Tiger Cub like the compact size, cuts great, runs great and its a huge time saver. also traded my 36" Toro proline in for a 36" Exmark Viking the hydro is the way to go!also love the ecs controls much better then the pistol type!
