I just picked up a 60/23 kohler lazer z demo. I will also be demoing the 52/23 kaw lazer hp this week. I can get the 60/23 Z for a few hundred LESS than the 52/23 HP. I know that kaw's are a bit more expensive, and also that the HP comes with the foot lift assist, bigger gas tanks and tank openings. What other advantages does the HP have? It seems to be common sense to get a BIGGER cut for LESS money, but there must be some reason that the HP costs more. The 23/52 is a very popular model and my salesman tells me he would rather see me get into one of those. Well obviously, they are more expensive! I need someone to tell me straight up why/why not to get these mowers, not the salesman that is looking to up his commission.
