    wow great to see another lithium ZTR on the market finally!!

    Pricing is on par with Mean Green from the looks of it, the the Greenworks machine has a lower runtime and is one heavy beast at 600kg!! Compared to the Mean Green at 460kg. Greenworks look to have cheaped out with a steel build, Mean Green is all aluminium - still the better mower by a long way, they've been doing this a lot longer and have put a lot of thought into keeping weight down. Plus the extra options they have... solar recharge canopy, front mounted blower, rear discharge mulching deck... And now the Michelin X Tweel tyres. No more flats or tyre pressure checks, ever. Awesome.

    There is a guy in Brisbane with one of those Mean Green CXR-60's now! I didn't make it down to see ZeroMow over winter, so I might see if I can get in touch and check out this machine in Brisbane. More than anything interested in how he got the machine here and how much he paid...

    Apparently Mean Green are looking for an Australian distributor so hopefully we could see them selling here within a year!!

    Gotta keep up to date on this stuff - but for a lot of us (me included, even though I have the MGP-20 push mower) these lithium ZTR's aren't going to be a real option until the cost comes way down. I just spent another $7k on Walker equipment, new 48" GHS deck (up from 42" Multi Deck), dethatcher and 95L boom sprayer. It's a much more useful machine to me, and when you consider that you can have one of these, or pay the same amount for a standard mid-mount ZTR albeit lithium powered...

    If I had enough time and money I'd buy an old Walker and convert it to electric myself... now if Walker brought out an "E" lithium model that could catch and use all their existing attachments... I really hope they've got something in the works!!

    Mean green have a dealer in New Zealand. Hopefully that might help the price come down. Strange that they dont seem have a 42 inch or smaller deck size as i would have thought the market would be in the domestic user rather than the commercial user, also the smaller the deck the lighter the machine.

    They seem to be built like brick ****houses.

    cripes, just saw the price of the walk behind 33inch. 17 grand NZ plus GST and then you'd need to ship it. Will mow for 7 hours straight. 175kg. Then again no fuel and bugger all maintenance. What are peoples thoughts on these walk behinds. Could you ditch your ride on and the SP and just use this machine? Obviously you'd have to adjust the customer base to suit but could this machine pay its way? I'm sceptical because I haven't seen any walk behinds of any make being used in my area, also those stand on mowers seem to have dissapeared. So what are the strength and weaknesses of walk behinds.

    What sort of yards are you doing currently?
    It's all horses for courses, Yanks use the stand on mowers as they take up less room and IMO are more agile than a ZTR
