    I have a 99' Viper it is a GREAT stripper, but is NOTHING like my Exmarks. It' s not even in the same class, but for the price lesco sells them for you can't beat them if your strapped for cash. I think the new Z-two's are supposed to be alot better. ENVY can tell you alot about these machines, he run one alot.

    I knew a guy with a Lesco ZTR and he loved it. It was a 60", don't remember the model or anything though.

    Well I have a chance to pick some Lesco stuff up at an auction thats coming up soon. And I know a guy who bought one (used Lesco Viper) stole it, for $1500.00 w/ a bagger and he ended up selling it 2 years later for $2500.00 NOT BAD!:cool2:

    Lesco a couple years ago came out with the Ztwo to replace the viper as there ZTR. The viper had a stamped deck if I am not mistaken. The new Ztwo is a welded deck. Alot of guys in my area run them and love them. Over all they leave a nice cut and seem well built for the price. I think a 60 inch with a 25 horse Kaw. is going for around $6,500. Depending on your dealer.

    There a commercial mower so why wouldn't it hold up to commercial use? Ive had mine for three yrs now and have had nothing major go. Recently I had to have some work done on the deck some parts welded back on, but after three yrs and the real rough mowing conditions its used for I cant complain.Mine is the Ztwo 60 , but we also had a 48 Viper as well which we sold recently, had that for 4 yr or more and that thing was a work horse.

    For the price of 2 dixie choppers xwf-2703-60in's you can get three lesco 60in z's. Pretty good deal there.
