Needing some opinions on this mower.

Background:
Currently own Hustler Mini-Z 19hp/52". In the off season I will most likely be buying a new mower with more motor. Want something with more power and deeper deck.

Early on, I am looking at either a HUSTLER SuperZ 54" XR-7/25hp KAW or EXMARK Lazer AS Ultra-cut 52"/Kaw 28hp.

My requirements:
GREAT cut (of course)
Hold hills well
Stripes well
reliable/durable
Decent speed (10mph at least)
foot controlled height adjustment (able to lift deck with foot for "high spots")

Is the 28hp Kawasaki a good engine?
How does the Ultra Cut do here in south (Bermuda, Fescue, Zoysia)
What kind of fuel consumption compared to the current 52/19 I have?

ANY more info you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated.

As for why only these two mowers:
Lesco - Not real impressed with the WB I have now
SCAG - Very expensive in my area
Gravely - demoed one last year and was not impressed

That's pretty much it in my area.

Thanks guys!!!
