Just visited the JD site and the new 800 z's are online. Just thought I would let you folks know.
Is the deck Belt or Shaft Driven?
Looks like its a good bit more $ that the 7 series also.
Huh... I didn't even know they were working on new Zs... engine choices are still a little limited... What kind of hydro system does it have? I thought the older systems were a single pump... did they change that?
If I understood the dealer correctly the 800's have a integrated motor/pump on each wheel. It does not use the integrated duel pump like the 757.
They claim the advantages are that there are no hoses and each unit has its built in reservoir eliminating cross contamination if there is a failure. The disadvantage would be the price to replace the combo unit. Their argument against that is the elimination of multiple component failure with a single reservoir system.
YIKES!!!! STAY AWAY! My John Deere HD45 walkbehind has a similar set-up... costs over a grand to fix if it goes... and thats one side....
Good idea as far as eliminating cross contamination but that type of system had some problems on the kubota zd series.
