    I am curious as to how much these mowers cost apiece. If someone know and could tell me that would be great.
    Thanks.:)

    I know the AS 52" 28HP kawasaki is 7800 and if i were you looking at those 2 i would be buying the 52" as not the 2 hp models

    The 23 Kohler/52 sells around here for $6999, the 23 Kaw/56 sells for $8599, and the 27 Kohler/56" sells for $9099. Course, the Advantage Series 28 Kaw/52" sells for $8099, so it's a bargain compared to the HP, but the HP has the Triton, which may suit your application better. The LAS is a faster mower and on a full size frame though.

    EDIT: the LAS has 12cc pumps compared to the HP's 10ccs. The LAS can also cut up to 5", whereas the HP only cuts up to 4.5".

    make sure you know what your getting into before getting the triton deck....

    I just purchased the 60" AS model. the advantage series in the only one that has the ultra cut deck this year.

    you will pay roughly 1,000.00 for the kaw engine. for me that just makes no sense..

    being how the engines are only 2,000.00

    Kawasaki is a better engine
    you can also get a full fledged laser Z with a 27 kohler and a 60" ultracut deck

    thanks for all the input guys. Just recently did i become interested in exmarks. The seem to be great machines. For sit downs i looked at scag and they seemed way to overpriced. Im really hooked on exmark. It seems pointless to me though to purchase a 52'' sitdown. I do like the 52" Z though.

    how would a 52 be pointless and you are asking about them ???? Like a 56 isnt pointless ?????????????????????? Personally i think the 52" is a more versatile mower for me
