I am in need of a ztr due to the number of large lots I have gotten over the past couple months. The old walk behind is killing me. So, I went to my local dealer and checked out the Hustler Z's. This is the only mower I have "really looked into" but I have general knowledge about other brands. I checked out the 52" 23hp kawi and I thought it was great. I wanted to know what everyone else thought of this machine. The price I was quoted was $6600.00, is this is a good deal? Like I said, I don't know much in the way of ztr's but it is a good looking machine. I am interested to know if anyone else has a better recommedation. My budget is max $6600.00 so that limits me. I want to get the best machine for that money though. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
