PJ, I'm in the market for a new Z-Turn mower. I have been running Exmark's Lazer Z's for the past 9 years. I've been happy w/ the Lazer's except for their performance in damp turf which I have found to be marginal at best and the finished product would be totally unacceptable to my customers. I run a pretty tight schedule and missed cuts due to weather conditions really cuts into my bottom line. Do these XR-7 decks really perform that much better in damp conditions???
