    My Exmark dealer told me that the mower deck for the New Lazers next year will have a new design. She doesn't know what the changes will be. Anybody hear anything about this? I am going to buy a new Lazer next spring but I am sceptical of change.

    From What I Understand it Will be Similar or Identical to the New Toro Turbo Force Decks...Possibley w/Mulch on Demand Adjustable Baffles.

    Great....nothing like ruining a perfect thing. we'll just have to see when it comes out, but I've always been one to go by the philosophy If it's not broke, don't fix it.

    Exmark must combine the ultracut and the try deck to have the best of both worlds.
    I do think you will be happy with the new one.

    Oh yeah, I have to see this new combi thing (ultra+trivan). eXmark service in my area is not good at all but the cut is still mesmerizing...too bad.

    milo, what's so bad about the 44" decks. I am looking/researching on buying a ZTR at the end of this season or first of next. I cannot have over a 44" cut because it just wouldn't be efficent as I mow 2 cemeteries and it would be just too much weedeating because most stone are 48" apart give or take 2 or 3 inches. What do you not like about your Exmark, they are on my list to go look at and possibly demo.

    Gizmo, You should still give the eXmark LZHP 44" a try. They are NOT "the worst cut ever". I should know, I use one, (LZHP 44" Kohler 20hp), It actually does better on most of my properties than some of the other eXmark deck sizes I have used over the last 10 years; (36, 48, 52, 60). Milo could have problems due to setup issues, (deck pitch, tire pressure, rpm, blade choice, grass type, conditions, etc.). For my area, I use the mulch kit with solid foil eXmark Excalibur blades, and a 1/4 inch deck pitch. This combo works best for my properties, over other combos I have tried. So don't take everyones opinions as fact. Do your research and make an informed decision for yourself. If you have any questions, or need any more info, PM me.
