Just priced a New Lazer 34 hp

I just called the larger of the dealers here to get a ballpark figure on the New Lazer Z with a 60" deck and 34 Kawasaki. The first price he gave me was $10,900 with out the suspension seat so we are talking $11,500 with a full suspension seat. I am going to set up a demo if it will ever stop raining and he agreed to save me a slot to demo one. If I'm going to be comparing them I might as well see how it handles compared to the older Z's I've had. It may be a while but I'll take a demo anyway. No doubt I can get him to lower the price some (the asking price is never the actual price here).

Anyway I'm sure I could probably get him to price it with the full suspension seat for under $11,000. But I have to remember I gave $9,600 for the 35 Scag. It may be a few weeks before I get time for a demo but I'll give it a fair review and try to take some pics. I hope he will let me keep one a while even if I have to pay to rent it a day.

I think all the New Lazers are air cooled, vertical, carburated engines. If he will let me test one I can be less biased when I compare it with the old ones. I have bought from him before so he seems to have no problem with me demoing if I can get the time. Should be a learning experience. I just hope he will let me keep it long enough to get a good feel for what it can or can't do.

I havent been following your threads real close, so this is a sorry ahead of time if you stated this somewhere previously. But are you looking to buy this Lazer or are you just demoing for the hell of it?

I am going for the demo. I want to know how the new ones handle so I can keep up and be objective when I talk about them. It may lead to a future purchase, who knows. Not ready to buy just yet till business conditions are better but I want to get the demo out of the way. I may study a ZTR for a long time before I make a purchase and the Lazer is very interesting.

Tacoma, you are in southern KY; I'm in northern TN.

I have two air cooled Turf Tigers. Yes you get used to the stiffer dampers and they actually help on larger properties (I hated them at first, but they grew on me). I am used to jumping off a Lazer (05) on to a Tiger and it just takes a second to readjust.

I am near Dale Hollow Lake and Lake Cumberland, out in the sticks. I've been to Paris, near Kentucky Lake, right?
