I just talked to my dealer yesterday about a new Z. The regional distributor has a special on a 62" Toro Z w/ 27 hp liquid cooled Kaw, and deluxe seat for $8,699. They are also including a Toro snow blower. This machine fits what I anticipate needing for next season. This dealer is my best, most convenient dealer and provides great service. Opinions on machine, price, the liquid cooled Kaw would be appreciated. An additional bonus is that they are offering no payment, no interest financing till May, 2002. Another plus, if I take delivery prior to 12/31, I will be able to write it off totally in 2001 by using the Section 179 expense election. What do you think?
