James 
from South Carolina 
July 12, 2011
Answer
James - we do not offer any type of consumer financing. We do offer the "Bill Me Later" program through PayPal which does offer you no interest on your purchase if you pay within six months. Please click on this link for more details about Bill Me Later: Bill Me Later

There seems to be conflicting answers to various questions about whether or not there are rollers front and back on this deck. Are there rollers and is this the same deck as on the zt4000?
Rock 
from New Jersey 
June 09, 2011
Answer
Rock - the Simplicity ZT3500 does NOT have gauge wheels on the front of the deck, nor does it have the rollers on the rear of the deck. The actual mower deck is the same deck as on the ZT4000 - it just doesn't have gauge wheels or the rear rollers.
+
Does this model have anti-scalp rollers on the front of the deck? What about full rollers on the back of the deck? If not, do you feel that this is a big negative on this model?
Jim 
from Pennsylvania 
June 09, 2011
Answer
Jim - the Simplicity ZT3500 does NOT have any anti-scalp wheels, nor does it have the rollers on the rear of the mower deck. This is not a big negative on this mower unless the area you intend to mow has numerous humps and bumps that might cause the mower deck to bounce.
+
Why is the zt3000 on a closeout, Will it be discontined? Whats your thoughts comparing it to the Ariens xl48 zoom for the same money? Any idea why I can not get any info from the simplicity website about the zt 3500? Thanks, Eric
Eric M 
from New Jersey 
June 05, 2011
Answer
Eric - the Simplicity ZT3500 model was a special one time "build" by Simplicity at the beginning of 2011. Think of it as a limited edition model that was only offered to select dealers. So yes, this model is discontinued - it is no longer being produced. Simplicity built a couple of hundred units, and when they're gone, they're gone. Comparing the Simplicity ZT3500 to the Ariens ZoomXL 48, the Simplicty has a larger fuel tank, faster forward and reverse top end speeds and twice the number of cutting positions on the mower deck. And perhaps most importantly, the Hydro-Gear ZT3100 transmission on the Simplicity is more durable and more responsive than the Hydro-Gear ZT2800 transmission on the Ariens model. Both are excellent mowers, but I recommended the ZT3500 for the reasons stated above.
+
Briggs & Stratton engines have had reliability problems over the years. Do you feel the engine on the ZT3500 is as reliable as Kawasaki V-Twin engines?
Daniel 
from Connecticut 
May 15, 2011
Answer
The reliability issue truly stem from the lesser quality Intek engines other companies use. When you get into the ELS and Pro series engines as well as the Vanguards, the quality is very high. To say it will be the same quality of a Kawasaki is tough, but they are very relilable.

Simplicity/Briggs and Stratton are not going to skimp when it comes to Simplicity models, being these are their high end mowers and a bad reputation would hamper them greatly.

Thanks,

who would do the warranty work.
Robert Turner 
from West Virginia 
May 09, 2011
Answer
Robert - any warranty service that might need to be performed on this model would be done by your closest Simplicity dealer. Warranty coverage is honored by the Simplicity dealer no matter where the mower is originally purchased.

can this mower handle inclines of greater than 40' in distance on a 45 degree angle
Paul Bradt 
from New York 
May 09, 2011
Answer
Paul - I'm sorry, but no zero turn mower (including this one) that I know of will operate effectively on inclines of 45 degrees. This particular model is not recommended for inclines greater than 22 degrees. You may want to consider a high end walk behind mower, or perhaps a commercial grade stand on mower to tackle your mowing requirements for this property.
+
Is this Briggs & Stratton motor a Vanguard motor?
Melissa 
from North Carolina 
May 03, 2011
Answer
Melissa - no it is not. The engine on this mower is a Briggs and Stratton ELS (extended life series) engine - engine model 44M777-0144-G1
+
Todd, why does the ZT-3500 only have one anti-scalp rollor on the deck? Could be an issue for uneven lawns. Is the striper available? Is the unit shipped in the factory carton to my home?
Bryan 
from Indiana 
April 28, 2011
Answer
Bryan - the Simplicity ZT3500 has 4 anti-scalp rollers - one on each front corner of the mower deck, and then two wide side by side anti-scalp rollers on the rear of the mower deck. The ZT3500 has the exact same mower deck as the Simplicity ZT4000 model. I'm sorry, but there is not a striping kit available for this model. And yes, this is a brand new mower that ships in a wooden crate (not a carton).
+
IS THE UNIT FULLY ASSEMBLED AND READY TO GO?
Duane Schaub 
from Michigan 
April 27, 2011
Answer
This unit would come ready to go except for the seat and steering bars. These would have to be put on and attached. This would be for shipping reasons. Otherwise this unit would be ready to go.

Thanks,
