    I have been browsing the eXmark web site and I like what I see. I cannot find the msrp of the zero turn riders listed on the site for comparison. What is the retail price difference between the Z and the Z HP? Yes, I realize the Z pricing starts with a 52" deck versus the HP starting with a 44". I'm just wondering msrp price difference between the two. I would be using for home use. Thanks!

    I paid $6,500 for a 2002 Lazer Z (52 inch deck) with a 20 HP Kohler last December. I live in New Jersey and bought the unit in New Jersey. As with you, I will be using the Lazer Z for cutting the grass at home. At first, I was looking at the Lazer Z HP with a 48 inch deck but decided to pay a bit extra for the Lazer Z (approx. $500 or so more). The reasons for the Lazer Z purchase was the larger deck and my understanding that the Lazer Z - as compared to the Lazer HP - has better weight distribution between the front and rear (whereas the Lazer HP has less weight in the front - thus is more inclined to "jump" up a bit in the front end). This is what my Exmark dealer told me and I have no reason to doubt his word - he also suggested the Lazer Z over the Lazer HP since part of my yard has some inclines so the extra weight up front will help my control and use over the unit. I used the Lazer Z in the yard once (in December) and I am very pleased with it and its handling over the terrian of the yard. You can't go wrong with a Lazer ZTR! Good luck!

    For your use, go with the Lazer Z HP 23hp Kawi. They are lighter (better), more compact (height & length), cheaper, fewer parts (no mule drive), and just as fast as a Lazer Z. If you have no need for a 60"+ machine, go with the HP. The only downside to the HP is 2.5 gals less fuel capacity.

    Either will serve you for many, MANY years!

    Good Luck
