Bought a 52" lazer hp on sat and I pick it up tomorrow. I demoed it on thursday and friday and it is an incredible machine. Everything you guys say about these lazers are great. I was very skeptical about its ability on hills but it did even better than my belt drive wb. It felt like such a light machine and was very manuverable. Very easy to master and cuts so well. I had tried the stander a couple weeks back and found it to be aweful on hills and very touchy controls. I love the lazers dampeners on the sticks so you can let go and swat the bug off your head and you still go straight. I was originally going to go with the 60" but found that the 52" would be more versitile for me on the properties that I do. Although my day was not dramically reduced, it still cut off about 10% compared to my belt drive 54" wb. The greatest thing was being done at the end of the day and actually having enough energy to my my own lawn. Great machine!
