    Re: ZD1211 or F2690

    I took the 60 inch deck and have not had any issues at all with any lack of available power whatsoever. I keep it at 2600 RPM when cutting...not even full bore.

    Re: ZD1211 or F2690

    I opted for the 2690 over the F3990. The dealer told me he wont sell the 3990 till all the issues are fixed. That was mid 2015.
