Hi Pj,

Can you post on the forum or email me photos of the new Hustler ATZ with complete detailed specs please?

I am looking at the new Kohler EFI 28hp model with 60 inch deck when it arrives in Australia, but I do a lot of steep work so maybe the ATZ would be worth a look. You mentioned the engine size, is it correct this model won't be available with EFI?

I hope to see some photos if possible, specs would be great so I can see what differences there are between the Super Z and ATZ except for the ROPS...

Thanks P.J.

PS, any solution to the scortched grass issue some have reported with the super z?

You are correct,
We do not at this time intend to offer the ATZ in a EFI.
The differences in the Super Z to the ATZ are as follows:
ATZ Frame is longer
Wheel weights
Weight added to the frame of the unit, between wheel motors.
Different offset to the rims.
Different tires
Larger wheel motors
Ground speed is slower on ATZ
ROPS With roll cage and seatbelt are standard on ATZ

Specs and photos to follow....

Thanks PJ,

I appreciate the info.

Very nice clean pictures, and great specs, all my questions are answered now thanks.

Surprised the deck is not as deep as the Super Z, I guess being a purpose built machine cut and fast discharge is better than sucking the clippings up to be cut into smaller size and using up horse power...the extended frame would make it awkward for general contractors. But I know it is purpose built, and not built to compete with general Z's, so it can't be compared to them, not apples for apples, as a slope machine should be a winner.

Good work guys!

Thanks again P.J.

I think the new Super Z with 28hp Kohler EFI engine would suit me better as I think from photos of the Super Z I found in a search here it will handle my slopes quite well.

This forum is a powerful marketing tool, convinced me which brand and model is best for me after demos that leave questions, every question almost has been answered in this forum.

The red Toro will have a big yellow friend soon!


PS: Since getting my demo from the Australian Sales Manager himself from Brisbane, from his arrival onwards nothing has been a challange, over delivered in service and professionalism, left me nothing but 100% impressed, and since one of your clients introduced me to here I have been reassured the Hustler company has a strong belief in professionalism and prompt service and there to help, which leads folks into a safe feeling at purchase, this as everyone knows is not something you get from each company, and dealers and reps are the front line, every contact with a Hustler dealer, rep etc so far as been very reassuring.

That's for lifting the bar in this industry, others could learn from you by what I've seen so far!

No problem....
There was a typo in those specs, the deck is 5" deep, it is the same exact deck that we use on our full size Z's and Super Z's
