    And I understand that you signed contracts, blah, blah, blah. Quit cutting down other machines to promote something you can't even contractually take a picture of.

    i ran into a local guy this week with his z- intermed. couple years old,
    his machine looked nearly identical to the z jr, anyway,

    he had the rear tires switched to a wide flat Shoulder tire, said he
    had much better traction,
    no one on here has done this?

    I think the problem I have with the Stealth Machine is that I might be interested in buying one if I knew what it cost's, what it looked like and wouldn't have to drive 150 miles to see or demo one. I don't have the time or money to drive to Iowa to see what Area 51 looks like!!!

    Mason & I are laughing our asses off. Too funny! :laugh::laugh::laugh: Thinking now of peeling off the "TURFCO T3000" decals from our machine and special ordering "AREA 51" decals to replace them. :laugh: (That was cool!) Mason says we'll now call it the "stealth bomber of lawns" (in and out so quick, you don't even know we were there).:laugh: BTW Mason has his own I.D. on this site, but he won't tell me what it is????:dizzy: He says that way he can talk his own sh$t about me. Anyways.....he's here now drinking up all my beers!:hammerhead:

    What good does it do me to call and "talk" about the "Stealth bomber" ? I still can't see it!! I've already heard the spec's enough!! Talk is cheap. Like I've said before I'm from the show-me state.

    Pics are scheduled soon (according to our early April event in Minneapolis). Keep in mind that this unit looks totally different from what you might expect. I realize my talk is cheap, and M's unwillingness to post from his own account is pretty cheezy. He's the one who runs our T3000. I now call him a chickensh$t, and I'm his boss. I take nothing away from Z-Spray machines (especially the Z-Max) cuz I ran them, and I know how good & reliable they are. Can't give details about the T3000 until TURFCO gives us the go ahead, but here's a hint: Both our PG's have been parked in our warehouse all spring. If I bought a Z-Spray, the only one I would buy is the Max.

    I know TURFCO has been distributing more & more of the T3000's throughout the Country this spring. So again I suggest you call TURFCO if you are seriously interested in seeing & trying out this new production model -- hopefully there is one fairly close to you. Ours is always available, but it's in Des Moines, IA.

    My opinion is that you will be 100% satisfied. We have nearly 70 hours on our T3000, and it still runs like new. Sorry guys, I too like to see pics before I buy, but that's not up to me. Wish I could do better.

    Oh yes, the cost is $8495. I have posted more details than anybody else regarding the new TUFCO unit, so I hope you realize I am trying my best (without getting into trouble with the manufacturer). 2 more notes: It has enough power to climb hills and go down hills at the same consistant speed. It goes all day without having to refill gasoline -- about one gallon of gas per day.

    Botom line, I'm taking a chance here posting "tidbits" and still trying NOT to violate our agreement with TURFCO. Buy one -- you will be happy. If not --- we'll buy it back, cuz we want another one.:usflag::canadaflag:

    Do you have a JR or a JR36? If its a JR36, putting wider tires would defeat the purpose of having a z spray that fits in a 3' gate.

    Did you buy your unit from LT Rich, or was it used? LT Rich should have went over your questions.
