Before anybody flames me for getting the 34Z let me explain. We have a bunch of lawns with gates that a 44 would not go through. None of which have any hills. My father has been useing a 36" scag with velke and he is getting older so thats why we got the 34Z. I just cut my yard with it and the quality of cut was excellent! He is going to love this mower! Here are some pics of our equipment. The 36" scag, 34Z and 48" Lazer fit perfectly on the 6.5'X12' Trailor!
