Bruce, I just hit 5 hours and my first oil change on my new 34" Phazer today the 20th and I'm loving every second I spend on this little mower. I am no longer tired at the end of cutting from having to man handle a belt drive. I'm sure as I get more seat time I'll have less trimming to do as well. I think eXmark did a great job on the Phazer and no unfortunately I'm not getting paid for any plugs lol. I've had it on 3 of my property's with gates that are 40" & 48" wide and 2 out of the 3 have larger rear yards and the speed and maneuverability of this little unit makes cutting a breeze.
A big thanks to eXmarkfor making a great compact rider. I've already got my next machine picked out, I'm going to get a Lazer Z HP with a 56" deck but, that will have to wait till I pay off the Phazer.
