    I was priced a LazerZ 60 27hp Kohler w/"free"mulching kit @ $8000.00,

    and a LazerHP 52 23hp Kawasaki w/"free" mulch kit @6800.00.

    Is the feeling of most on this board that the 60 Ultracut is worth the extra 1200 bucks ???

    I can use either size mower.

    I will mulch ONLY.

    Thanks for your opinion,

    Thanks for the input, guys !

    How are your TriVantage decks mulching in this weather we're having?
    I'm wondering if the Ultracut is doing better in the wet, fast growth conditions ???

    eh, eh...yeah, dealer offerred me a 72" with I think a 27 Kohler
    for $8500...dang, that thing is intimidating ! Skeered me ! LOL

    Think I better stay with a 52, now I am tempted to try a 52 UltraCut vs a TriVantage, but there isn't a 52 Ultra available at the moment.

    This is a huge step for me as it is not a pressing need but an
    investment in future plans.

    What a buy! I just looked at the Lazer Z 72" w/ a 27hp liquid cooled kohler/kawasaki (can't remember) last week and the price tag was $10,800. I'm always reading about everybody buying these machines for thousands less than I can find in this area. Plus they're getting the mulch kit for free along with the bagging system. Our dealers want to charge for every extra nut and bolt. Every time I walk into one of those places I feel like I'm talking with a used car dealer, and he's getting ready to take me to the cleaners.

    this 72 was an air cooled 27...not liquid cooled, so that no doubt accounts for the big difference here.

    The 72 for $8500 was just like the 60 for $8000 except for the
    deck size. Both were 2004 models with ROPS and 'free' mulch kits.

    The price on the 52 23 HP is $700.00 less than the dealer here in Atlanta quoted me. Sounds like a good price.
