    Looks like a really nice mower. I don't see any husqvarna's around here, but I think this new unit may make them a little more popular around here. I'd love to get a demo one if my dealer gets one.

    These will be high end machines. $9000-$10500 is what I heard.

    Too bad for me in my area! The yazoo-kees distribator for here has run off all the dealers that made yazoo a big player around here! Husqvarna at least in the commercial mowers are almost non existent around here! I will probably never get to see one in person!

    Got a chance to see and run one this week. We are a dealer but have never been impressed with the Husqvarna Z's. To be honest, we cringe when they come in for service. We have always sold and promoted Exmark.

    I believe Husqvarna has something with this unit. Very nice design. Very impressive deck design and pricing is super.

    In my area I was comparing prices with Exmark.

    A 29hp Kawi with a 60 deck on this new Husqvarna is going to retail for about 9500. In comparison, an Exmark 27hp Kohler, 60 NEXT GEN retails for about 10,900. That's a big jump. Over 10 percent different. Now it's just getting customer to believe that these new Husqvarna can compete in performance and longevity with the Exmarks and Scags..........

    wow that thing looks nice. Any pictures of the deck underside? Also, are the front castors greasable?

    One thing I noticed, it seems grass will get stuck easily under the spindle covers. Are the Y/K's basically just gonna be red, with Y/K badging?

    How about a couple of shots of the mower that actually count. The underside of the deck. I don't care what the top looks like.
