I want to thank everyone who participated in helping me make my mind up on my next mower. I know there is more than 1 mower brand that would have worked but I am very satisfied with my choice. I went back to Exmark which has lasted me the longest, and had the best cut in my area. Only this time went with the lighter version being the Lazer Z Advantage Series with a 28hp Kawi and 60" U/C deck. I can tell right off that all my smaller jobs 2 acres or less with all the obstacles this mower is hard to beat especially mulching. I shaved a lot of time off everyjob I did Friday which was 2 days worth of mowing on the 4th because my Hustler is in the shop AGAIN !!!!. I beat the normal time that it would take with the 66" Hustler. This mower is so nimble and quick that I was in an out of the normal pain in the butt jobs. Cut quality was great. I'm waiting on my Suspension seat and stripe roller but what a great little mower. My 2nd choice would have been the Cub Cadet Tank as it has a great cut also, but dependability and service was an issue so went with what I felt was best for me.
