Well I have been looking at just about every small 36" or smaller ZTR for the past 8 months and after several demo sessions and endless research I finally decided on the Mini Fastrak 36". I should have made the decision 8 months ago, but I'm one for checking every option before buying, and I must say that I really believe this is the best small ZTR for the Money. I would have liked to have the seperate wheel pumps and motors, instead of the EZT transmission, but since my property is 3/4 Acre I don't think this should be an issue for years and years to come. I had the gator blades and mulch kit installed and had my first cut today. I can see I will need to have a couple more sessions to get this turning down, but started picking it up pretty well by the time I got to the back yard. I am very impressed with this little machine. Finally I would like to say thank you to PJ and all the forum for the insight and information provided. It was this forum, PJ, as well as my very helpful dealer that closed the deal for me.
