    Hey, I was wanting to know if anybody on here has an Exmark lazer xs w/ 66" deck and 35hp vanguard.

    If so, I need to know any estimated fuel consumption rate.

    I am debating in between going with 60" or 66" mowers when I my mowers out this fall.

    Any opinions?

    I was originally leaning towards the 60" w/ 28hp EFI but the 66" is obviously a little wider and it goes 14mph vs. 10mph. I have a lot of large property's where I can go wide open but it won't save money if the engine is sucking way more fuel.

    I dont know squat about the vanguard but i was thinking to myself get the larger of the two. The fuel cant be more than like a half gallon per hour difference max and if your able to run wide open that extra 6" of cut had better pay for that extra fuel or your pricing is wrong. Time= money.
