its not the cheesy homeowner version. Ive been doing this for over 15 years. I wouldnt buy a homeowner machine for my business. It gets less than 200 hrs per year. My Grasshoppers get twice that with 0 problems. This machine is the 34Z. Kawasaki 17HP FH541V. The current version of this machine is I guess what they now call the compact pro. Anyway, that being said. Its crap. Refer to my prior descriptions. It cost over $5000 new. Worst $5K i ever spent. I had to choose between the exmark, the toro and the gravely. I made the mistake and went Gravely.
