    I just got our first lazer two weeks ago and I now realize what I have been missing. We have 3 grasshoppers that will soon be replaced with lazers. I also have a Toro 62in ztr with over 1000 hours on it and have never had any trouble with the spindles. I was wondering if you guys know if I can expect the same from the non-greasable bearings on the lazer?

    I have a 2000 Lazer Z (60'') with almost 1500 hours on it.

    No spindle problems as of yet. Still nice and tight. :D

  7. Why didn't you just get the Toro version of that mower with the turbo force deck?

    I didn't get the Toro because I wanted the Ultra Vac and did not like the bagger that Toro makes

    I've never replaced a bearing on any of my eXmarks.

    Exmark Lazer 60" deck, 3 yrs and 1500 hrs, one spindle replaced.(warranty) Exmark Turf Tracer Hydro, 3 yrs and no spindles replaced. remember there is a 1 yr parts and labor and 3 yrs parts only warranty on the spindles. Also there is an updated version of the spindle assys. They added a shield to help keep trash from ruining the seal.
