I was looking for some comments on how these two compare with regards grass pickup. I am still considering whether I which mower I want. I hope to start demos middle of next month. I am considering the Laser Z CT or HP with the UltraVac system or a Walker. Both would have the 44" or 48" deck. The main use of this is to cut my Acre plus bermuda grass. I have a new lawn soded June 2002. There are still some pretty bad ruts that I just dumped a lot of sand into to try and level out. My wife likes to keep the yard pretty short and our current Scotts (made by John Deere) scalps WAY to much. Any information would be GREATLY appreciated!
