    Nice addition to their line in my opinion.

    I will guess 1400-1500.... not too bad for a diesel.

    Let's see how close I am....

    It looks cool. What is the reputation of the Shibaura diesel engine? I take it that it's not a Super Z, just the Hustler Z.

    I "think" it is in the CAT-Perkins family.

    i'm thinking your right on the weight. too heavy in my opinion. they are probably good for the large commercial properties but too heavy for any residential type mowing.


    grasshopper makes a machine in the 1200lb range
    kubota used to make a lighter model also in the 1200lb range

    Hydro Gear BDP -21 pumps
    Hydro Gear axial piston wheel motors.


    i believe this is the same set-up they have on the super z...but i could be wrong
