Hello to all! My wifes brother has been doing lawn care for about 8 years now and has helped me get into this business as well. Recently he offered to sell me one of his mowers for $1,000. It's an Exmark Lazer Z HP 23hp. kawasaki air cooled engine with 52in. deck. Mower has 1,520 hrs on it. It has the stripe kit and comes with the ultra vac system too. The year is around 2000 maybe slightly newer. Not sure. He bought it new around that time for around 9-$10,000. He just wants to start upgrading his equipment. Mower runs and cuts well. I would say it's in pretty good condition. I work with him from time to time and have used this very same mower numerous times and love it. Also, I think this is the mower he had a new engine put on a couple of years ago so hrs. may not be accurate......THANK YOU!!!
