I would like to buy from Frenettes or Schmidts & Serafines but 2 other dealers in the state have better prices so far.

I have been buying from Schmidts for years now and have nothing but great things to say about them. Then have always done right by me. I would pay alittle extra just for the service alone from Schmidts. In fact i never shop around for mowers, I always just buy from them, So much so i have an exmark dealer in my town 5 minutes form my house and i still take the 20 minute drive to schmidts

I am right in the middle of the two. The only difference being highway to Schmidts or rte 10 to Frenettes. I am leaning towards S&S though. They have been very helpful in the past and stock most of everything I need. Cofiells in Glastonbury has been the most aggressive on numbers but don't want to travel there for warranty work or parts.

That is great to know since Frenettes always seems to not have what I need and need to order most everything except blades and belts. Plus trying to get a loaner is next to impossible. I will definitly talk to S&S about service for commercial customers.

Subscribed.

Curious about this combo.

Specifically if someone has other Next Lazer's with other engines to compare to.

I am also going to look at the non efi versions to see the pricing difference. Then I can make an educated decision of the efi is worth the extra money for the claimed fuel consumption savings.

EFI is worth it alone for : no choke, no backfire, PTO on at idle, and many other drive ability bonuses.
