I just bought a new Kubota ZG222, and I love it. Its my first ZTR, so I am not that great with it yet. I just mowed my back yard, which was about 6 inches tall and very green/thick. Just side discharged, as I have yet to get my bagger. It did perfectly. Took me 10 min where it would usually take me probably 30 min with my Honda. This ZTR is much more of an improvement than I thought it would be. I am just wow'ed with it. I highly recommend trying one out, and I would buy one again.
