    I would like to know how these mowers perform. I have heard that the 22 hp kawasaki liquid cooled is plenty strong enough. I can purchase one for about $150 cheaper than a 25 hp air cooled. What does everyone think of these mowers.

    You can get a 22LC Kaw for $150 less, what's the catch?<p>Anyway, the have plenty of power (for a 60&quot;) and are relatively trouble free. (Quiet, too) As far as longevity, they've just been out 3 summers, so we'll see how that goes.

    Here in South Carolina they have an $800 rebate right now. This is a brand new mower. Also they have no payments or interest until next March. That is very cool...

    My dealer said Exmark over manufactured the LC. You can buy for the same price as 25 Kohler here. $500 rebate from Exmark.<br>22 has enough power, but not if you mulch. I had one as loaner last Spring. The unit had a mulch kit. Poor results.

    And I was thinking of mulching. What do you think the results would be if you just used gator blades and didn't mulch?

    I am new to the business but I have an Emark 60&quot; Liquid Cooled machine and I love it. Like I said I am new and haven't experiencd others but I don't know how it could get much better. Get on and watch out for trees.

    CTod, That's the beauty of it, if you run a mower like the Lazer, then you don't HAVE to mulch! If you ever run into thick conditions, double cut at the most. I run two Lazers. An LC and a 26horse fuel injected. While the fuel-injected provides more power, the LC is aLOT quieter and cuts beautifully. If you buy one though, do yourself a favor and get the foot assisted deck lift. WELL worth it.

    Why does the liquid cooled run quiter. Is it lower rpms or the way the muffler or the way its built.
