    I am condsidering purchasing a Hustler and was wondering if the Super Z can mow at higher speeds(11 plus mph) than the regular Z.

    Yes it can, just remember, in wet or heavy conditions you will still need to slow it down a bit, to let the deck do its work.

    Recently cut about 5 acres of subdivision lots with the super Z. These were open lots with nothing on them. Had a blast. What an awesome machine. the power is really felt when you put it wide open. It did a very good job. No way you would want to run wide open in a small yard or could. But if you have a lot of open property to cut this it the one to get. Way too much fun to be work.

    I have used both mowers and after you run the Super Z you will bend the levers trying to push them forward to get the regular Z to move faster.

    Pumps and wheel motors are larger, and the hydraulic system also has a hydro cooler for added cooling.
    And of course the Super Z's are faster units (15mph)
    The Super Z's also offer some larger engine options in some models.
