Would anyone running these NOT buy one??

I've got one I'm going to go look at this weekend, but I was just wondering if anyone here is running one, or has run one, and would NOT buy another??

Thanks,
Jeremy

I have a Z450.

It is an awesome mower. But, with any mower that I recommend, I say to get the higher horsepower model. Get the 23hp vs the 19hp.

I'm looking for Toro 455 owners. 10.5' cutting width, 55 or 60 hp diesel.

I think he is referring to the 455 Groundsmaster that cuts 10.5'. Those models did have some belt problems due to the deck folding and unfolding. The new model 4100 is a sweat machine. No more belts, all of the spindles are driven hydraulically.

Correct. And I was trying to find out from someone if the problem with the belt is such an issue that they would never buy another.

Also, since the radiator is in the back, much like Tonyr's John Deere in another subject title, if they have had problems with the screen plugging as well???
