I like the hood scoop on the Pro, man that thing must fly!
Also the "Outback/backcountry/ultra bushman" bumper. That is one high tech bumper.

Thanks for the pics!

Looks like a decent line up. I think they will work for some people, but I got to have the older tractors, I just can't look like a rocket ship when I am not leaving the ground. :sidelaugh

Excellent grapeknutz! Do you know what transaxle they have in the new GT's?
Believe it or not I asked that question and they didn't know!!! I will get that answer and get back to you.

The bumper is kinda cool on that one. I would think that the wheels turning THAT much would dig up the yard pretty good. Does it???

Kinda moved in the ATV world style wise
It a zero turn cub/craftsman with a twin trans/ one trans per wheel. It been out there for a while as a cub cadet.
The front wheels act like a caster wheels
I did try it but it was raining like a cow peeing on a flat rock so I could not get it on the lawn!:fing20:

Introducing the New Craftsman Cadet. I agree they could have atleast changed the Hood on the Craftsman version of the I series. I see that old Murray AWS design coming back under the Snapper label. I sure hope they fixed the design on that AWS model because Murray never had good luck with it. But they do look interesting for this year.

I take it that plowing or blowing snow is out for those too?

The Cub Cadet ZTT can accept front attachments. There's a thread on the CubCadet forum about plowing with the iSeries
Although I though the steering wheels on the iSeries was real steering although the dual trannies do the turning work in the hard zero turn. The real steering makes for a better ride on hills..

Several commercial zero turn riders (with casters only) have front plow capabilities. The zero turn and no diff (always get power to both wheels when going straight) make for a nice plow machine in some situations, although they are not ideal HD machines in all.

I believe that Red said the Snapper 100 series is being built in the old Murray factory..

The Pro GT has a much lower price point than last year. (The "normal" DGS6500 price is/was $3200? the pro was $3500?) Or will they keep the higher price but always discount to $2800)

You really don't want to do those things with that. You would like to do that in a garden tractor, it a much better platform to work with.:fing32:

Murrray and Snapper are both owned by Briggs and Stratton
