Have been demoing an Exmark Lazer HP 48" w/Kohler 18 this weekend and I have to say the quality of the cut was about the same as my JD lawn tractor. The Lazer was obviously much faster and more maneuverable but I was disappointed with the cut quality. From all that I've heard, I guess I was expecting an absolutely perfect cut. I did notice that the quality and type of grass affects cut quality. For example, I mowed for a funeral home last Friday and their grass was very thick and beautiful. The quality of cut (using my JD tractor) on that lawn was better than the quality of cut on my yard (pretty decent grass I had let grow quite long) using the Exmark. I also noticed some of the same places on my yard where the tractor missed some grass, the Exmark missed too. Comments? How long does it take to catch on to the turning of a ZTR? I know the trick is to keep both wheels moving, but I've found that you have to also start moving both wheels at the same time and stop both wheels at the same time. I'm sure this just takes practice. Any tips? How do you spin around at the end of a row? If you spin around 180 degrees at the end of a row, you will be facing the row you just cut. You also need to be over a mower width to line up with the next row that needs to be cut. I guess what I'm asking is how to turn 180 degrees AND move over a mower width in one motion at the end of a row. This website and the people who use it have been an incredible wealth of information for me. Thank you. Joel B.
