    Z915e

    I picked up our new Z915e yesterday.

    It replaces a Kubota Z723.

    Hands down, flat out, no question - a much nicer machine.

    I keep finding things I like better about it everytime I look at it.

    Grease zerts in the spindles, a deck that discharges most of what it cuts, quieter, easier and more responsive sticks, availability of mulching blades, the list goes on.

    At home with hour 1 on the meter. (Sorry in advance, using my iPad and I have no control over how the picture will be orientated, just guaranteed not to be right side up)

    Finished mowing the yard this afternoon.

    I still have some slippy spots, but that is what it is.

    One thing I notice is the fuel usage is much better. Only yook about three gallons to mow and I was going slow. Old one took over five. Once I get used to the new machine, it will get better.

    It cuts great and it is very smooth to operate.

    I may have to cut the grass again tomorrow....

    I am sure you will like it. Have you considered getting some weight for the back? That should help in the slippery spots if the problem persists. I know some people have gotten the weighted rear bumper or the split bumper that they use on the 2016+ machines. That is one of the things missing on the older B which became the E version of the Z9xx. Be sure to check out the guides that I had posted in the reference area. There is some good info on the Z9xx machines in there.

    Another option on weight if you think you need it. I have a photo of a guy that set up a rear bumper for his Z9xx that could accept a couple 42lbs suitcase weights. That was pretty slick.
