23 horse kohler on a 60in ultra cut?

hey ive got a friend of mine trying to sell me a 2007 exmark lazer 60in ultra cut. It has 90hrs on it and in good shape. He wants 3000 and wont take any less. I was just wondering if you had anything to say about the offer or the machine. It has the 23 kohler on it and that is my main point of making me leary becuase exmarks name is known for reliability an quality cut and i am ready to give them a go but i was wondering if you had any input on the 23 horse being under-powered in alot of conditions.

Run full sized tracers here with the 23 hp engine. It is adequate but would like 25 hp better. In this area most lazers with that engine run 48 or 52 inch decks. I'm thinking it might be underpowered.

Yes $3,000 is a good price for that low of hours. I had one just like it and it was a little underpowered in our Spring growth but it got the job done. I doubt it would have any problems with Southern grass unless you plan to mulch.

Sounds like a very good buy. If I was in need of one, I'd feel blessed to have a deal like that come along.

I was thinking the same exact thing! That is a good price for that mower. The 23 will be adaquate for your use. I had a 23 on a deere with the 60" and it had plenty of pwoer.
