Is this a decent price for a Laser?

Exmark Lazer Z 60" with Kohler Command Pro 25 HP

Roughly 1800 hours on it, states all maintenance was done per manufacturer recommendations.

Asking $3,000


I have roughly 1 acre, single family home no business. Pretty flat. Looking to cut my time down over the 10 year old Craftsman lawn tractor. I haven't looked at it yet, but figured I would check with the pros first to make sure it is worth seeing.

Thanks guys.

That's a lot of hours for that price, but if you are not using it for a business then it might be ok.

Thanks. I will continue to look, on the fence of going with a used Laser or new Quest. As I mentioned, it is just for my yard which I generally cut twice/week during the heavy growth season (now).

Hi, I'm a homeowner too in NJ with a little over 1 acre. For comparison, in September I bought a used 2011 Toro G3 60" with a 29 hp Kawasaki having 300 hours on it for $6400.

Some dealers I looked at had 2-3 year old Exmark Lazers between 800 and 1000 hours in the low to mid 4,000 range.

Consider a Scag Freedom Z. They are a nice mower. For a few grand more you'll have a homeowner warranty on a new mower.
