Needing some opinions on this mower. Background: Currently own Hustler Mini-Z 19hp/52". In the off season I will most likely be buying a new mower with more motor. Want something with more power and deeper deck. Early on, I am looking at either a HUSTLER SuperZ 54" XR-7/25hp KAW or EXMARK Lazer AS Ultra-cut 52"/Kaw 28hp. My requirements: GREAT cut (of course) Hold hills well Stripes well reliable/durable Decent speed (10mph at least) foot controlled height adjustment (able to lift deck with foot for "high spots") Is the 28hp Kawasaki a good engine? How does the Ultra Cut do here in south (Bermuda, Fescue, Zoysia) What kind of fuel consumption compared to the current 52/19 I have? ANY more info you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated. As for why only these two mowers: Lesco - Not real impressed with the WB I have now SCAG - Very expensive in my area Gravely - demoed one last year and was not impressed That's pretty much it in my area. Thanks guys!!!
