I'm seriously considering purchasing a new mower. This will be only the second commercial ztr I will have purchased, and I want to make sure and get something with a little bit of growing room. I will be getting rid of my fixed deck 48" Surfer (Take it please!!!) Anyways, I wasn't planning on purchasing till' next spring. However I see that you are giving away striping kits with the 03's and that the 04's will probably be a few hundred dollars more. I was looking at a 60" Lazer with a 27hp Kohler. Can you offer any input as to changes to the 04's? I heard they may come with the ROP-I really don't like the idea of that, anything else? I really don't have much knowledge of the Exmarks, but you guys sure do have a super loyal following here, so you MUST by doing something right!
