The site does look nice -- just hope I can restore the link to the pubs site, since they've totally changed everything... B)

Al Eden got me a sneak preview of the Prestige suspension in October at the OPE show in Louisville. They had the prototype behind closed doors. IMO, this COULD BE a great enhancement to these machines if the primary use is mowing rather than tilling or snowblowing. You should be able to comfortably mow quite a bit faster with the suspension - likely still not as fast as a ZTR, but certainly faster than a machine with no suspension.

The market is quickly shifting to ZTRs, and perhaps this change will allow the "tractor style" machines which are more versatile (accepting tillers. blades and snowblowers) to continue to survive and prosper. I'd be willing to guess that there were 8 to 10 times more ZTRs on display in Louisville than there were conventional tractor designs...

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
