...changed the bigger frame Z's numbers and motors? Case in point my buddy has a Toro Z286E which is the 26 hp efi 62 " deck mower that Toro came out with back around 2001 or 2002. Now I know the deck design as been changed but wasn't the 26 a good fit. I know now that the new one is the 580 series with a 28EFI or a lc27 kawi. Another question is will the new Turbo force deck bolt up on the old 286 frame? Anyone have any input about the older 286E? It seems like a good mower but why such a short run? I know the 28 has more power but I own a 26 and it isn't weak by any means. So what gives.
