I took out a new Lazer Z 60" with the 27hp Kohler engine. I currently have a 2001 Exmark with just over 700 hours. I wasn't really planning on getting another one when I demoed, but the machine impressed me to where I can see myself buying it. Does anyone else run this model with the 27hp Kohler?? When I bought my 2001 I demoed a 60"/25hp Kohler. It didn't have enough power for my liking so I went with the 23hp Kaw and a 52" deck. It has been close to problem free so far. Here is a picture of the machine I tried out Its the Lazer towards the rear of the trailer.
