    Are the 72" XR-7 deck out yet ?? I would like to add a couple more mowers in a couple of weeks my dealer sells exmark and hustler, deere, So Im not shure which one i want, I wish the briggs engine was a choice for the hustler then i feel my decesion would be a no brainer, My lazer has it on it and i love this engine, but not to crazy about the lazer frame design being off set it really throws off the stripes and digs in in high spots.

    The 72" XR-7's are not available yet, they will be available later this spring.

    besides the 6" difference...
    Obviously 6" is more grass cut in a single pass and that results in more efficient mowing, and more money in your pocket.
    The 66" will fit in 99% of the areas the 60" will and it wont scalp like a 72".

    Thanks, we currently run all 72" riders and want to keep the same deck size so our stripes will line up with all the other mowers, We sold off the last of our 60" mowers last year and want to stick to 52" and 72" cuts, makes it alot more simple on us.
