    If you remember a week or so ago i posted about a snapper ztr.

    Well on your advice i went back to the dealer and told him that i was not interested in it and that i wanted a pro machine.

    He told me that the only difference is the pumps and the grade steel in the frame.

    So i did some research and this mower has,
    7 gauge steel deck, same as scag
    18 hp Kohler motor, same as others
    grease-able spindles
    pivoting front axle
    2 year warranty.

    In fact the only thing i found differance was the pumps and ground speed and a slight differance in blade speed.

    Whats up with that? why the huge price difference?

    Would someone smarter than me clue me in cause i feel like a idiot asking this.

    From the spec sheet it seems that this mower would hold up fine to a year or two of part time use until i can afford a 7-9k machine

    I'm so confused:confused: :confused: :confused:
