Has anyone ever used or had the opportunity to demo one of these? I have been looking to get a ztr and was pretty much going to get an Exmark, but ... out in front of the Snapper company store is this twin lever ztr, new for this year. I asked the salesman where it is made and he said across the street at the factory. I assumed it was made by Ferris or something else associated with the Simplicity line. The thing looked really stout, especially the frame. Service points seemed easy to get too. They have only two models a 19kaw w/48" and 21kaw w/52". Those size decks would put them in the mini class, but the unit is pretty wide, tall, and heavy. The unit had a lot of standard features that were extra on other units. When I saw the price of 5999 it just seemed too low for the amount of stuff you get, but... I've never seen one perform, don't know how the deck will cut, etc. It seems as if they have done there homework, or the design came from the outside when Simplicity bought Snapper. There are no special programs regarding the mower that I am aware of, nor is there any literature describing specs or attachments available. I went by a grasshopper dealer, extremely friendly, said they had 0% for 36 months. I thought that was kinda odd, never heard of that before on a mower, of course never heard of 0% for 60 months on a car until 9/11. Maybe they can't sell enough of them. Would like to look at a Hustler before I make a final decision, haven't seen any of them around mostly all just Exmarks. Any scoops would be nice.
