    I test drove both yesterday. (60")

    Lazer Has alot of new design elements..

    Id say for less money they Super Z has more usable power.

    Both mowers go about the same speed..

    just my 2 c

    Ok once being a Exmark dealer and now A Hustler Dealer. First I would like to say I like both the machines. Exmark and Toro make great mowers. However apples to apples the fabrication of a Super Z and its components are much better than a Lazer Z. Not to mention a better warranty. PM me for any questions.

    The quality of cut was not the same. The exmark has a better quality of cut in my opinion. The last hustler i tried didnt cut very well but that has been a few years ago. The hydros on the hustler are better on the hustlers compared to toro and exmark. They are more responsive and just easier to operate. If you could buy a toro with hustler hydros then that would be a real mower. Just my 2 cents

    The NEW XR-7 Decks are awsome 6" deep and superior cut. The older decks I agree are no where near as good as the new ones.

    Not saying that the new XR-7 decks are no good. I have heard by a few guys in my area and a few on lawnsite as well that the cut is just not as clean as a exmark or toro. Leaves to many stringers. I test drove a hustler last year and the hydro's are the smoothest I have ever used. I actually love everything that mower had but just heard so many complaints from guys on the cut it steered me away. I think they made a baffle insert to correct the problem. Is this true?

    At the end of the day it is the quality of cut that makes the difference. :drinkup:

    I have to agree with this 110%. I have a Super Z 31/66 and it is the best riding and smoothest handling mid mount I have owned. When I demo mowers though the cut quality is one of the most important facters. If a mower does not cut good in your area, all the speed, bells and whistles will not make a difference. If the Emarks cut is noticeably better I would go with that, but if they are close to the same I would vote Hustler.
    BTW, have you tried a Walker Super B? I have too many ditches and rough mowing areas for one, but I loved the demo I had on other places I cut.

    You must not have been on a Super Z, the speed is not comparable between the two.
