Im still trying to decide. I have to make a decision tonight because the rebate on the exmark ends tomorrow. The Laser AS 60" with the 28hp aircooled kawasaki is $7999, with 1.9 finacing. The wildcat with a 26hp LQ kawasaki with a 61" deck for $8999 and 0 % financing. I demo'd the exmark, but havent had time to find a scag to demo. I have about 3 acres to mow. I would like something that lasts, and can stand up to my wife's abuse. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
