    I haven't tried them, but you can determine their power by the type of engine they are using. (brand, hp)

    I bought a CZ4815 with a Kawasaki engine this year. Been using it about 6 times now and would never go back to my Kubota garden tractor. I would bet that Chevyman never ran one. If he di he would know it is a nice machine. Anyway, I would recommend it. It takes about 2 hours to mow my 3 acres which took 4 1/2 with a 44" garden tractor. I'm sure it could use a bit more horse, but regular cutting even if wet is good.

    They are consumer z's.designed for the non commercial home user. I suppose a small lco could use them for smaller nice properties. They are well built if you use them within their limits as with any product.

    The product i was looking at was not a residential line. It was a commercial machine with a 2 cyl. kawi engine and a 60gal. bagger. Yes they do have a residential line which is in my view 'Garbage', this is not a machine used for the homeowner. I was just wondering if anyone else has used anything like it. Keegan99usa, are you using it as a homeowner or commercially?

    I tested the commercial models & seemed like a good machine but the homeowners model is junk for commercial use

    I am curious about them too. I see them advertise, but I never see anyone use them

    Experienced opinion I'm sure :rolleyes:
    The commercial units are built by Yazoo/Kees.
    <--------- IMHO the cut and mulching ability is second to none!!!
