    Was talking to a Distributor(sp) sales rep. He sells Exmark, echo ect...Told me the 09 Lazer Z will be a 1 peice pump/motors.. Also told me the deck is changed also..not call the triton anymore(wonder why??:rolleyes:). Going to have a suspention "simmular to but different" then the bad boys(his words)...Told me there are around 60+ units out being feild tested. Anyone see one yet??
    Sorry If this is old news or wrong Info. Just repeting what I was told...Did a search, but didnt find anything.......:usflag::usflag:

    I sure hope your dealer is telling the truth. It's about time they fix their Triton platform, and start equipping suspension.

    Wasnt a dealer....was a sales rep for a distributor. Met him at a July 4th party in Maine this weekend. He agreed the triton deck wasnt one of there best designs...lol. I asked him if the new deck was a hybred of the ultracut/triton. He said it was all new.... Seemed to me he didnt want to come rite out and say the susp was like the bad boys.........Only time will tell:usflag::usflag:

    Sounds like I'll be staying away until they get the bugs worked out. If they have a one piece pump/wheel motor I will stay away indefinitely.

    I did ask if the pumps motors were able to be replaced seperatly, and he wasn't sure. If the whole unit has to be replaced you wont be the only one staying away.............:usflag:

    A one peice pump.. Totally worthless and prolly more expensive.

    Personally, I think the current Lazer Z AS with the Ultracut deck is the best Z they offer.

    There was a thread a while back about a redesigned Lazer Z being offered with a 38hp Cummins diesel. It would be interesting to know what engine configurations will be offered with the new design. Maybe someone could provide more details on what is going to be offered.

    Sounds like the kanzaki pumps on john deere z tracks. Isn't it like a better version of the hydro gear zt2800? I would like to see a new 46-48" deck on the hp.
