I was shopping for a new mower today as I'm about maxxed out with my 48 Turf Tracer, which I don't even have a spare for. A local dealer has a leftover 60 inch Lazer Z with the 27 HP Kawi liquid cooled engine that he says is a "heck of a deal" at $7999. The machine has 6 hours on the meter from running around but has never cut. It seems like a good deal to me, but what gives me pause is that it doesn't have the deck lift assist or cup holder that was standard in 2002. He says they were shipped separate and are included. Makes me wonder if this is a 2001 leftover, not 2002. How can I find out? Is there a date of mfg. stamped somewhere? And even if it is a 2001, does it really matter? Thanks for any advise.
