My eXmark dealer had a open house/pigroast at the city park last Thursday. He has it every year. Real nice deal. He puts on lunch and has all their equipment out for demo's. Stander, eXmark, Bobcat, Echo, Redmax, Tanaka, BillyGoat, Ryan, and some others. All the area reps. are there to talk and answer questions. It's really quite nice. Anyways, the eXmark rep said they are coming out with a 28 EFI motor on 2003 Lazers. I have the 26 EFI and like it. Been trouble free so far with about 700 hrs. on it. I wonder how this will fit around the 27/31 Liquids and the diesels? I really want to add a 72" deck but the $13 grand for the diesels or biq liquids are a huge pill to swallow. He didn't say anything about price but I just wonder if it will run a 72" good and still be somewhat affordable. I demoed the 26 EFI with a 72" and it just wasn't enough power in the thick grasses. Also, I really haven't heard anyone too happy with the amount of gas the big liquids suck down. I would most likely go diesel if going big like that. With my 60" 26 EFI I can run a full day of mowing plus with the tanks full. It's real easy on gas and that I like. Just curious what you guys may have heard about this?
