Experienced Lawn Care Co. Buying 1st ZTR. Please Help.....

I am finally able to justifiy that ZTR to my wife. Been in the Biz 5 plus years and up until now have not been able to justify one. I am 32 am have finally reach manhood. Please help me in obtaining full manlihood.....

I am trying to decide between the Hustler Super z with 25hp or the Exmark Laser z with 27hp liquid cooled. I have not demoed either but will in the coming weeks. Here are the Pros and Cons so far.

Hustler Z: 25hp
Pros: Built like a tank. Good grass collection unit. Goes 15MPH.
Cons: Air cooled. I would have to dump into a tarp then load onto my truck. 2 step process.

Exmark Z 27hp. Liquid cooled
Pros: More Horse power. Able to dump individual bags into truck.
Cons: Potentially not built as robust as the Hustler. First appearance.

Both are priced the same.

Like I said I have not demoed either but assume both will perform well. I am leaning towards the Exmark because of the bagging and horsepower advantage.

Sharing your experience with either of these pieces of equipment would be much appreciated. By the way the price is the same for either in our neck of the woods.
