Deere 930M or Exmark Lazer E
I just moved to a new house where I have 2.5 acres to mow and also mow a few other properties on the side that are 1-2 acres. I am currently using my father in laws kubota zd326 60" and its a beast. Nice machine but out of my price range. It's time for me to buy a machine and I want to spend 6-9k. I found a leftover lazer z e series for $8200 (Kohler Command) and a deer 930m for $8400 (kawi 26hp). I think the deere is a better value but wanted to get some opinions. Other than using kubota and some older toros in the past I am blind to all the other brands. I will probably only put on 80 hrs a year.
