    Thanks guys, To answer some questions, i only run 60's i bought a new 48 inch Exmark metro a few years back because i thought i would use it, I ended up only putting maybe 50 hours on it and it sat for a year un-used in the shop till i sold it for next to nothing lol.

    There is nothing wrong with the old Lazer shes just getting alittle old and has a fair amount of hours on her, Close to 2k.

    The new lazer seems pretty good its taking alittle getting used to since i have put almost all of the hours on the other lazer. I opted for the 29 efi kohler to try and help with gas savings.

    Thanks man, ill have to get back to you on gas consumption, My older lazer ripped through fuel pretty quick, I'm gonna fill the new lazer up tomorrow and see how much it takes, i Put exactly 10 gallons in it this morning at the pump.

    I will say also that the new Lazer is much more planted then the older one, it holds the hills much better and doesn't slip the wheels when mowing on the hills like my old lazer does.

    I think you will really like the new body exmark. I love mine, its not efi so its plenty hard on fuel, but I wouldnt change a thing. They are tough as well, 600 hours on mine, not a bolt turned other than changing blades. Nice buy though, let us know how the fuel consumption is. Im considering the efi for this next one as well.

    I love the ultra cut deck, My turf tracer has the ultra cut as well. its a good deck and does good in the wet. It does tend to build up some grass underneth if you don't keep an eye on it but it always mows good and throws the grass good even with grass build-up.

    Forgot this pic.
