If you got anymore questions send me an e-mail info@jitys.caor just pm me
Thanks. I appreciate your input and since you're the only person I know who has used THIS model, I value anything specific you have to say about it - good or bad.

As I've already mentioned here I know up front that it's not going to be built for the abuse of commercial work. Some people would laugh at the Toro Super Recycler 21" mower I'm using, because it's not a commercial mower, but it got me through my first season just fine. I view this ZTR in the same way. I had come close to buying a low end commercial Toro ZTR at the end of the summer, but $5,000 was just not in the budget yet.

Crossing my fingers. Also praying it fits in the trailer - LOL! I should have about 3-4" to spare, but I didn't feel like unwrapping the tarp to measure it.

And since I have a photo fetish, HERE IT IS!!!























And a 360 degree view if you click on the image...





I drive my wife nuts with the photo taking. The sales guy chuckled and I told him "this way, if it gets delivered with scratches, I can prove that they did it!"

not 100% positive ,but I think that husky was made by american yard products ,who also make craftsman tractors etc .You might want to have a good look at any bagger they offer you ,it truly might be exactly the one you need for your new unit .Does sears in the us have a craftsman zero turn that looks like your husky?

Honestly, I don't know. I knew they sold wide deck walk behinds under the "Craftsman Professional" name (black and yellow), but until I saw this, I was unaware they carried ZTRs.

I'll look into it though because the bagger is listed for somewhere around $500 on the Husky website. If I can get one at a bargain price, that would be awesome.

I spent half the day today trying to clear a spot in the garage for this thing. LOL!

Prior to this ZTR, I was hoping to be able to get my wife's car in the garage before winter, but it looks like she's out of luck now.

LOL.

We had discussed building a shed (for the equipment - not for her) this summer, but money was tight and at the time I was OK with the space I had in the garage for storing my gear.
This came out of nowhere and now I'm scrambling to reorganize/throw out 20 years worth of accumulated crap in my two car garage that you can't get ONE car into!
Two weeks ago I cleaned it up a little, placing my mower in the back, and setting both snowblowers up front for easy access. I really need to build a storage shed this spring!

I built a 10 x 10 shed this fall ,8 foot walls ,tall peaked roof , shelved to the top just for my tools and equipment as theres no room in either of my garages anymore .I havent worked out of it much yet as I finished it very late ,but it seems like it will be a good investment in the long run .
