I tried the new Exmark Laser today. It was the 31 hp, 72 deck. It is nice, but huge!!! If you have the need for a deck that big, I suggest taking a look at it. They did not have the diesel there though, which I wanted to try. They also had the new walkbehinds, I like the new grips, easier to use and seems easier on you. Just thought some of you would like to hear about it. The laser was very quiet and smooth to run, a lot quieter than my Kaw.
