These little compact riders (if it's a reputable brand) cut grass like there is no tomorrow. Excellent cut quality and versatility are just a few of their asseta. One thing to consider, though. I don't know about others, how they are set up, but it was mentioned that on the 48" Lazers, you lose the deck edge that protrudes out, and it makes your left side trimming a bit more difficult. On some others, it may be different. On the Lazer, the deck doesn't come out past the wheels, so this is where this comes into play.
Thank you, Dad - for always being the dad that you were. You truly are my hero. You always were.
