I searched and searched and cannot find a good thread on this.

Can I please get the good and bad from real owners of these 2009 or 2010 machines??

the Next Lazer and the Husqvarna PZ series in a 60 inch deck cut.

I just drove the next 34 60 combo and I will warn you do not push both handles all way forward from a stop postion or it will stand up. As far the two units I like the pz but getting negative feed back as far as how far it throws the grass. Neg on next lazer it is a little rougher ride then years in past

Thanks for the input.
I would be using a mulching kit, so if anyone has used a pz or Next lazer with one that would be helpful as well.
this week they have promotions on both of these with a much bigger discount on the PZ , but I am just looking for what has worked best for you guys.

a little bit of an exaggeration don't you think? I demoed that same mower and its not going to stand up just because you give it full throttle from a stop.

Are you saying the PZ throws the grass too far or not far enough?

Thanks,

wouldnt matter how far it throws it as long as its feathered out right.

I am starting to think everyone here uses walk behinds. apparently noone has used a Next Lazer or a Husq PZ

I think the problem is, the Next Lazer has only been out 1 year. This is the First year out for the PZ. I think you'll be happy with either machine.

If you're interested, PM me and I can probably put you in touch with a few people who were part of the long term field tested of the PZ in Florida last season.

Well, we got the dixon version, same basic mower, different seat and options.
We are in northern TN, it does very well here. Dischage is incredible, haven't seen it clump yet.
Haven't ever used mulching kit on it, not sure how that is yet.
From what I've been seeing, they're built very well. That spindle is tremendous, if I remember right, it outweighed that huge toro spindle by at least 7 lb. It's over 10 in. in diameter. The deck is all 7 guage. It has a lot of design similarities to the G3, and probably the lazer, but the PZ is bigger and beefier in almost every area. Also, check out the way those rollers are mounted. I'm thinking they are at least $500 under Next Lazer, probably more. I don't think their are any customers that really put them through the paces for 2000 hr or so yet, but first impressions are great!
Correct me if I'm wrong, Jim.

Thanks fro the info.

Put on a set of High Lifts if you're cutting weeds and clover. That will definitely take care of your discharge problems. P/N - 522829301 for the 60" deck.

We are an Exmark and Husqvarna dealer. Our customers really like the Next Lazer and we just got our first PZ's. The PZ sure looks good and we have a demo but have not had much time on it yet. I have alot of Next Lazers in the field now and they are holding up very well. They ride and handle so much better than the old Lazer. Husqvarna is a company with alot of money and they look to be serious about making some inroads into the commercial market. The PZ looks to be a step in that direction. You can get them about 500 less than a Exmark right now.
