Picked up our new Z Master 48 inch Turbo force 19 kawi today 19 hp is fine for the southern grasses I mow. $5995.00 was the final selling price. This will include our first service and filter changes. It's been raining for 5 days pretty heavily and today was the first sunshine we have seen. Nice tall wet grass in our backyard to test this thing out on. It easily plowed through anything we found on our 40 acres and never skipped a beat. The atomic blades seemed to work well but will get replaced with gators soon. WE left the turbo force baffle wide open and this thing really throws the clippings. The cut was excellent and the hydros were very responsive. Traction even on damp grass was excellent but it wasnt hard to tear up the turf if you tried. Can't wait to hit some customers yards tmrw. Gotta pray for sunshine before bed thats for sure. Over all 1st impression is EXCELLENT. Just gotta add a word about my dealer. Our mower didn't come in as ordered so he (well I ran up there at 4pm to get it still in the crate) got one from his brothers dealer about 30 miles away and stayed an hour and a half after closing time today to assemble it. Now thats service and thats why I paid a few bucks more to get it from him.
