    Built very similar to a Grazer or Marty-J, neither of which are very good machines IMO. I know a guy that has a 60"or 61" Zipper. He seems to like it, he has a catcher on it (44 gal rubbermaid tub with blower) I'm not actually sure where the blower is mounted, wether on the deck or if it's a pony motor. Sorry I don't have more info, that's the only one Iv'e ever seen in use, other than the ones some dealer brings to our state fair every fall.

    They leave a terrible cut. Run far away from them and find something of better value.

    I know a guy here that runs them, he seems to like them. From what I have seen they dont not leave a good quality cut. I think they look like they would have a high center of gravity also.
