I am getting ready to buy an Exmark Lazer Z with a 60" deck. I am not sure about the hp just yet (23 or 27). Right now I mow 3 large yards and spend on average 8 hours doing this on the old Craftsman mower. I need to cut down the time spent mowing these and hope to pick up a few more just to earn some extra cash. In the long run I would like to start a business out of this but I will just have to wait and see how things work out. My question is how much is everyone paying for these machines? I think the dealer in my area is a little high on his price. Maybe because he only has one left in the showroom and Farm Fest is in another week. Thank you for any input you can give.
