Just giving a simple introduction. I've done a lot of forums but usually motorcycles or firearms. I had purchased a Z445 years ago when I had 2.5 acres of yard and it has been a great machine. I have since 2011 added another 7.5 acres of land, first the lot next door became available and then 5 acres behind me. So the old Z445 has been pushing it's limits for a couple of years now. Broke down and purchased a new Z915E with the 54" deck. Nothing fancy but came across this site while looking for information before I purchased so decided to join. Tried to buy from the local dealer by my house in the country but had no luck getting the price I wanted and that was even on a left over 2018 model. I work in a large metro area and so I shopped at a dealer near my home in town and they accepted my offer that I sent to the small town dealer no questions ask on a brand new 2019 with a born on date of April 13th. I must be getting old when I actually look forward to mowing. Oh and best of all I take very good care of my equipment including yearly oil changes, filters and any maintenance that is required. So with only 300 hours on the Z445 my brother was happy to accept my hand me down for his new lake property.
