    Well, i don't have one but i have some good info on them. Afer talking to my two dealers they both had told me the same thing. The new Lazer Z HP is there #1 selling product to commercial companies. They said that as soon as they get some in, they are gone! According to them, the most popular is the LHP5223KA. This is a 23hp kawi with a 52" deck. Now, this is just in my area so i don't know how this model would fit your properties, just trying to help. Good Luck!

    That 4 inches can make a big difference. We run the 48" Lazer Z's and they fit in a heck of a lot of tight spaces (even with the bagger). You will get into more spaces with the 48" but it won't get you into backyards if there is a fence.

    Either is a great choice.

    I got the 52" but I opted for the "AS" model because it had the Ultra-Cut deck. It is on the full-size frame where the HP is on the compact frame. I initially wanted the HP but I am very happy with my deck and I have fit it into some pretty tight spots. Good luck.
