No contest here.. Go with the eXmark Lazer Z or the eXmark HP. OR, a Walker.<p>In my opinion the eXmark is the best enginered mower on the market.. hands down.

We buy Toro Z253 62&quot; 23hp Kohlers for 5800.00<p>I don't know if they're the best, but I think they may be the best value.

That reminds me!:<p>I was test driving Bobcats Friday: <br>The ZT200 (I think) had a 23hp Kawi and 61&quot; deck- nice machine. Very similar to Lazer/Toro, etc. I like the vertical shaft engine configuration better than Exmark.<p>But what the *&^@ were they thinking with the 31hp Dihatsu 72&quot;?!?! The HOC adjustment must've been designed by a drunk engineer on a Saturday night before the Monday AM deadline! I'm serious, that has got to be one of the stupidest ideas I've seen on a lawn mower. I can't even descibe it. Check it out at your local Bobcat dealer.<p>Anyway Bobcat will sell alot of their 23 Kaw 61&quot; mowers, they're really nice.

Hey Toro, I mean Lazer, are you going to change your screen name now? I couldn't resist. You make sure you report in on how these new Toro's perform once we get cutting. <p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.townserver.com/elm/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>
