    Anyone compared or demoed the two? Pros and cons of both would be appreciated

    haven't run the super b, but the front running is impressive. It's great for rough cut stuff but if you are gonna run it on finished lawns, make sure you order it with the turf tires. With the mudders, i took it through some drainage ditches and was quite impressed. The electric deck lift system is cool also.

    The Super B has some nice features, but it has the ZT2800 transaxles. It's a couple thou cheaper than the Frontrunner though isn't it?

    We are running Super b models and find them to be quite impressive. very nimble and quick, handle grass very well, climb good (unlike other model WALKERS!) we already have 290 hrs on the one we bought this spring and just can't complain at all, especially for teh price!

    How do they both price out? I think I remember a promo on the super b for around $8,000.
