Looking at the following

2004 Laser CT w/ 18Hp Kohler 48" = 6k out the door
2001 Laser Z w/ 23hp kohler 60" 150 hrs = 6k out the door
2004 Toro Z149 w/ 19hp Kaw 52" = 6200 out the door

Thanks for your opinions

Buy new if you can afford it. I use both brands and like both its a win win for you in your choice.

Stay away from that 18Hp single cylinder Kohler....I was at an Exmark dealer's open house recently, and someone asked the dealer about the CT. The dealer and the service tech both said the mower was great, but the engine was sort of a "dog".
That's the only Exmark this dealer had issues with.
Definitely go with a V-Twin engine (either Kohler or Kawasaki).

the new toro's with turbo force decks are very good, just recently bought one.

I haven't purchased yet, but after demo-ing the x I am a Xman now and will be buying my own soon, go with the X.
