    that looks like the first time i tried to spell it. as what it sounds like,aint it . check out their ztr ive demoed several and they handled very much like the very popular hustler. course u would have to have them both on the same lot to really compare . dont think the colors quite as pretty,but that dont cut the grass:)
    also ive heard from a sales person that their basic design is the one kees had. let us know what u find out.

    I just bought one of their 52" ZTR's with a 23hp Kawi on it. I've owned a couple of Toro Z's and 2 Grasshoppers (one Kohler 20hp & 1 Kubota 25hp gas) since 1987 and the fastest, best cutting, most comfortable mower I've ever owned is my new Husqvarna. The quality of cut is absolutely outstanding. I have the mulching kit on it because I mow only St Augustine grasses here in W Central FL. It can mow through heavy thick grass (like over the septic tank) and not leave rows or clumps and doesn't bog down. It is by far the best mower I've ever riden. After 13 years of using Echo 2501 and 2601 trimmers I bought a Husqy 325 L trimmer and guess what, same as the ZTR, absolutely the lightest most powerful trimmer in it's class to me. If I'm starting to sound like a commercial, well, I'm sorry. But I am really impressed with their products. Did I mention my dealer is also first class!!!!

    My demo was solid on the 60 " some weeks back. The only thing I did not like was the blow back from the high lift blade up and over the front left castor wheel. It was the dirtiest I ever got on a Z.

    Hit a tennis court pole (metal) going 8-10 mph and did not mess up anything on the mower. Bounced back at least a foot- nearly flew out of my seat.

    The high lift blades sucked up a garder hose (yes I was having a bad day) and wrapped it around the blades et al. It was easy to access and dislodge.

    Tested it again with gators on it a few weeks back. My impression was altogether positive. Should buy a Z by the end of January. It's down to Hustler, Snapper and Husqvarna (maybe Wright Stander).
