    I never heard of a "525".

    But a 52" Lazer with the 22hp LC Kawi is a decent mower.

    You can get a lot more hours than that out of this engine.

    I just sold my 60" LC Lazer (27hp though) for that same price. If this is in good shape and 52" deck fits your needs, then go for it. I'd get him down a bit though on the price.

    It is actually a 252L.Are you familiar with this model?

    Are you sure it's an Exmark?

    Never heard of a 252L.

    I have a 2001 52-inch Exmark Lazer Z as well as the documention that came with it plus that year's Exmark catalog. TLS's skepticism seems appropriate to me. There is no mention of a 252 or 252L in any of those documents. One of them has a list of all engines in Exmarks that year, and there's a 23 HP liquid-cooled Kawasaki, but no 22 HP of any make. Maybe you should check with Exmark.

    On the other hand, I bought mine as a leftover in September 2001, so maybe my catalog is really for 2002 models. The catalog doesn't specify a year, but my air-cooled 23 HP Kawasaki is in that catalog, so I had assumed it pertained to the 2001 models.

    Sounds like a gravely to me.

    My apologies, the mower is a Toro 252L Zmaster

    That unit will last a homeowner like yourself forever. You should be able to get it for 3700 or 4000 somewhere in there.

    That's for sure! For instance, mine now has 90 hours on it.

    Is it true the engine should go 3000 hrs?
