    I have a 44" exmark lazer ZHP for sale in the local paper. It has 412 hours with a mulching kit included. Is $4000 too much money for this mower??

    yeah it's clean and runs/cuts excellent. I just thought I needed a bigger mower so I bought a new 52" 27 hp toro. I kinda miss the little 44" for it's nimbleness though.

    I don't know about the price....but I was at my Toro dealer the other day and your Exmarks look an awful lot like the Toro Z-turn mowers. Are they the same? Up here we don't see any exmark.

    You didn't mention the engine type. The Kaw 17hp seems a little low on torque, I had a 18hp Kohler twin (20hp is supposed to be the same) and it did fine in most situations on a 48". That would affect price. Yours looks like a Kawi.


    Most buyers want size over nimbleness, so the mower's not in big demand except with startups short of cash.

    I'm actually in the market for a 44" as a backup and to do props where the 48" might not squeeze in.

    it is the 17 kawa motor. I love the size of the 44" since it would fit through the 48" gates, but for the little time I was saving in the back yards of the 5-6 yards with 48" gates I was loosing on my 2-3 acre yards and front yards. So it's back to using the 36's in the back yards. The power was adequate for the 44" deck I would have liked more in some of the thick wet St augustine, but for all the other times it was fine.
