    What do you think if exmark came out with a 84" or 96" lazer.Would it be something you would be interested in?I posted in exmark and Terry said
    he had not heard any plans for them to make one but he was wondering how many people would be interested.
    I think it would be awesome but do see one problem like 65hoss said how
    would you trailer it around?I would guess a trailer that size is big bucks.Not to mention a lazer that size.Sure would be fun to try one out.

    My 60" Lazer Z is big enough for me thanks! There may be a market for the bigger Lazers, but for me personally, (residential properties...yuppy neighborhoods... 1/2 to 1 Acre), I don't want or need a wider mower.

    I chose the 60" over the 72" Laser because it was, in my opinion, the best choice when dealing with the lawns that I maintain.

    There's hills, swales, pools and gates, I didn't want a wider deck, I didn't want the hastle of uneven cuts across a swale and worrys about the size of the gate.

    Wide open spaces? If I did 100% commercial work, I would love a larger Exmark! These mowers are great!

    A larger Lazer just doesn't work for me at this time.

    8 foot stripes.... can we say football field!

    what's the max width trailer without having a wideload banner or escort?

    It would be pointless. They would scalp unless they had 3 different decks that floated. But Toro already has a 16 ft mower, but there is quite a gap between 16 feet and 6 feet. So, there might be a market for a 9 foot mower but it really wouldn't be worth it.

    The other thing my wife brought up was,think how much a mower like a 84"or 96" would cost up front not to mention the operating costs.Then you would spend big bucks on a trailer to haul it around.Just thought I would ask.

    I've been using 105 for a long time, and it would be nice if the Lazer was available in 105 also.
