I was going to buy a new Simplicity Consumer Z for my 2 acre property when I saw a second hand Toro Z 100 with the 48 deck and the Kawasaki 17 hp engine. I think I will buy this machine because it looks a lot heavier build than the Simplicity and I can get a really good deal trading in my old mower. The Toro has only 73 hrs on the clock. I could not find much postings on this particular machine in these forums. I was wondering if anybody wants to share his experience with this mower. Furthermore I am curious how you all clean your decks. Do you hose it every mowing turn? And is it easy to take the deck off for maintenance? I saw the extra stand Toro opts for lifting the deck. Is this useful or is it just as easy to drive the front up a couple of ramps to get there. And how about the experience with the FSF blades and the Recycler deck? If there is anybody out there with this experience I would greatly appreciate any comments here........... I love this forum........glad I found it!
