Pricing is bottomed out at $6200 unless you find a demo. I picked up the 52/23kaw. Could have gotten the full size Z with a 23 Kaw, but the 60 deck was just too big for me. Not a lot of wide open mowing on my property. As for the rest...I started looking at the Exmark CT, moved on to the FasTrak, but didn't trust the Honda engines from what I'd read on lawnsite. Figured the Mini was full commercial and expected to last 2x longer than the FasTrak for only $1400 more than the 52/20Honda. Demo's all three models along with an Exmark HP and full size Z. The Mini just seemed to perform better. Steering and control was MUCH better on the Hustler that the red machine. Search my posts and you can read several reviews of those other machines and the Mini.

Bottom line, you can not go wrong with the Mini. Good luck with your purchase. You should be able to get your dealer down to $6236 and have him toss in an extra set of blades.

Couldn't get anything specific other than generalities about the larger Honda engines. Everyone posted that the small engines were great, but had "heard about a friend of a friend" that had problems. With this size investment (big for me) the old adage "where there's smoke there's fire" kicked in. Couldn't find one bad thing about the big Kaw engines, so I went with the 52/23Kaw.
