    I dont know if you have any input to the engineering/design department, I would like to address a small but annoying problem on my new mini Z. I just greased it for the first time and ran into a problem greasing the gauge wheel bearing zerks. The zerk fittings should be at a different angle or located further from the wheel hub. The hydraulic grease gun fitting would not snap onto the zerk at the angle they are located because of the wheel rim interfering. I had to hold it firmly on the fitting while my wife pumped the gun. Next time I will replace the fittings with angle zerks. Can you tell me the thread size ?.

    I love my Z

    I have not had to grease my demo unit yet, I just got it, I wil look at mine to get a idea of what your talking about, then I will look and see what size fittings we are using.
