    Was at my Snapper dealer today ordering my new W/B and noticed Snapper has a totally redesigned line of ZTRs out. They are called "Z Force" and are nothing like the old "Z Riders", these actually look like a "real" ZTR. Here are some prices:

    48", 19hp Kaw = $5999

    52", 21hp Kaw = $6399

    They look like a heavy duty commercial ZTR, but with any new product, time will tell.

    Just a possibility here.......

    Snapper was bought by Simplicity, Simplicity owns Ferris, are they similar looking to the Ferris units ? or the Simplicity Z-Riders ?

    I have not seen them yet, so I can only speculate...

    Later

    They don't look like the Ferris ZTRs and I haven't seen the Simplicity ZTRs so don't know about them.

    That looks similar to some of the ENCORE models. Sonds like a nice machine. Unfortunately there is no way to have a track record so I'd demo one.

    I see they got rid of the single joystick controller they had. I always wanted to try one of those out just to see what it felt like. Sort of like a high powered electric wheelchair.
