Ive got 10 acres that i keep cut regularly, looking into either an MZ 61 with 24hp Kawasaki or the Z 454 with the 22 hp kawasaki. These are the 2 larger mowers in stock at my local dealer with the MZ61 being a residential and the Z454 being commercial grade. The MZ61 has a larger deck and 2hp more than the z454 but the z454 also has a slightly stronger deck and some other more heavy duty features as it is in the commercial category. Does it seem like a better choice to go with the Z454 as far as longevity as it is stated to be commercial? I currently have 2 Poulan 54" 23 hp briggs that just arent working well any more. Thanks for the help

I just looked at Husqvarna site and it says MZ61 Kawasaki FR series which is residential series, the drives are 3100 hydrogear, the Z454 has FX series Kawasaki which is commercial, the best part of the Z454 it has Parker pumps which means one drive pump that sends fluid to pumps on each wheel, I have that on my 2004 Gravley with 805 trouble free hrs.
If you can afford the Z454 it is definitely the best one.
