Have owned this machine for over 14 months and am very happy with the performance. A few very very minor issues on arrival however would recommend. Wished I cpould give a 4.5 star as that is the real worth in my opinion.

I've had mine for 5 years using it on hilly 5 acre home site.
Can't afford to let the grass get too long though. Mower has been good apart from electrical safety switches which fail from dust getting in. Best option bypass most electrical switches and you'll have trouble free mowing. Good tough machine.

I have 34 acres of undulating farmland. This ride-on has the power and precision to let me get all over the place quickly and effortlessly. I love its responsiveness and ease of use. Its tough and can handle demanding conditions. The finished job is first rate. Plus it's great fun to use. Thoroughly recommend it.

Had been looking for a ride on mower for some time and came across BBT on the web. 52" is great and zero turn much more time efficient and the team at BBT were super helpful and friendly. Only 10 hours in but so far its been great

I have found the extra wide (52") cut a great time saver when mowing my acreage around my Rural Dwelling. Furthermore the Zero Turn control makes it easy to operate and a huge plus when turning corners or mowing in smaller / tight areas. Great Value for money for a higher powered Ride On Mower

I spent 2 months looking at all the brands before taking the plunge on this ,so glad I did. Well built with all the good parts. I picked this up after getting BBT to set it up.........the service was exceptional.

A great mower delivers on all fronts, why spend double the price for the same thing with a badge.

It was love at first sight and it has not let me down. It was my 66th birthday present from my husband. Though he was the purchaser it is my baby

Previously, my ride-ons had been tractor style mid-mounted, but with as few as 100 hours, yet another pressed sheet metal deck was off to the tip. Zero turns looked far too pricey. Having moved to a new home on 3 park-like acres dotted with trees and a few gardens, it was time for a change. I used and compared a wide range of imported and local zero turn mowers before purchasing this APACHE ZT52.
So, what do I like?
Perhaps the big powerful B&S engine for which service and spares are available just about anywhere. Better still are the beefy US 3100 series hydro drives – most competitors top out at the 2900 series. The chassis looks strong, well made and comes with top of class bearings and copious grease nipples. Front castors are generous enough to minimise any scuffing in sharp turns. Rear tyres are fatter than normal to eliminate slip or turf damage. Twin fuel tanks total 34L – and I find fuel consumption is better than quoted. All controls are well laid out. Big “must have” for me is the beautifully designed and fabricated cutting deck – triple blades for a 52” cut – but with an uncluttered flat top to the deck that eliminates grass and water traps. Yet, in spite of all that, best feature is Adam and the team at Bigger Boyz Toyz – a wizard who answered all my questions and shared his knowledge. Best move I made was to travel down with my 8x5 trailer (saving $600 freight) – Adam spent valuable time providing hands-on help.
Then, what do I dislike?
Not so much a dislike, I find the handbrake location awkward when “on”. My only other gripe (tongue in cheek) concerns the stubby holder built into top of left fuel tank. I enjoy using this mower so much, I have no need of refreshment – just when the fun turns to love, I'm finished.
This APACHE ZT52 is no lightweight – nor a slouch! Topping out at over half a ton even before I get on, it is fast on the job. My 3 acres of lawns? 75-90 minutes tops. Add another 10-15 minutes for wash down, check and lube. Big and tough and half the price of the competition – this unit delivers great value.

I unpacked the ztm from the cumbersome metal crate and bolted seat, steering arms, roll-bar on the mower, had a good look at this rather large machine...everything looks heavy-duty, all linkages are massive and well designed the cutting deck is 4mm plus has 8mm steel reinforcement welded on top, there are a lot of grease nipples the front wheels have steel rims, hour meter, two way fuel tap, safety belt, even the pulleys are solid steel not soft aluminium...as I said this ZTM is a real bargain :)
