I would like to know how these mowers perform. I have heard that the 22 hp kawasaki liquid cooled is plenty strong enough. I can purchase one for about $150 cheaper than a 25 hp air cooled. What does everyone think of these mowers.
You can get a 22LC Kaw for $150 less, what's the catch?<p>Anyway, the have plenty of power (for a 60" and are relatively trouble free. (Quiet, too) As far as longevity, they've just been out 3 summers, so we'll see how that goes.
My dealer said Exmark over manufactured the LC. You can buy for the same price as 25 Kohler here. $500 rebate from Exmark.<br>22 has enough power, but not if you mulch. I had one as loaner last Spring. The unit had a mulch kit. Poor results.
I am new to the business but I have an Emark 60" Liquid Cooled machine and I love it. Like I said I am new and haven't experiencd others but I don't know how it could get much better. Get on and watch out for trees.
CTod, That's the beauty of it, if you run a mower like the Lazer, then you don't HAVE to mulch! If you ever run into thick conditions, double cut at the most. I run two Lazers. An LC and a 26horse fuel injected. While the fuel-injected provides more power, the LC is aLOT quieter and cuts beautifully. If you buy one though, do yourself a favor and get the foot assisted deck lift. WELL worth it.
