    Finally going to commercial grade equip! Buying one or 2 exmarks! MAN I CANT WAIT TO DRIVE THOSE BAD BOYS

    I'm debating between the HP and AS. (I dont need huge machines)
    I have the comparision specs, so I know the technical differences between the two. But what are the Hands-on preferences between the 2 models?

    The AS has the Ultra Cut Trivantage deck
    The HP has the Triton Deck

    Any thoughts there?


    They both have different hydro pumps, and theres a few other things they vary on. Can you explain the differences.


    Help!

    I wpuld spend the extra money for the HP. I like the new deck, Exmark has really done their homework with this deck. I have a 05 HP and love it.

    How much does the mulch kit run for the 50" deck HP?
    Anyone have experience with the mulch kit? Does it take care of everything in one pass?

    My husqvarna Z with mulch kit required 2 passes (criss-cross) to completely mulch the clippings! I hope I can get away from that with the exmark.

    The MSRP on the Lazer HP mulch kit is $180 and you should be able to handle everything in one pass.
    Thanks Brian

    My 48" handles clippings with one pass. I will never bag unless it absolutely necessary.

    Toro owns Exmark. Don't forget to price them as well, but if you want a really nice machine look at Wright.
