    Checked out a 30hp generac on a 72 DC today.
    Holy S#%t! That thing is and animal! AND you can get the Generac on a 60".Unbelievable.
    I think I have to have it.
    Next stop is the Hustler dealer. I can't wait.
    Looks like DC is willing to work with the 2002 models. I must admitt that a 52" supermini was on my short list, may have to think about a 52" and a 60" DC instead? Very impressed with the DC.
    Be back in a couple weeks with the Super Z impressions.

    As opinionated as this group can be, I'm surprised at all the looks but no responces. I have been reading the different threads but they MOSTLY seem to be by people who buy into a specific brand. I am not to that point, yet. That Dixie was an animal. Ran so fast I almost soiled the Dockers. I know you can't cut that fast but why let the mower walk between sites when it can run?
    Still going to check the Hustler and New Exmarks. Not sold on any one but trying to keep an open mind.

    Speed on the aspalt is one thing, work in the grass is another. Demo every mower you can. Take them to YOUR properties and try them. Don't just drive them, use them. Then pick the one that WORKS the best for your situation. If you do, you can't be anything but happy.

    While your demo-ing, why don't you try one of the Ferris IS series with four wheel independant suspension. Try it on some rough ground. You will be impressed.
