I have 30 accounts, i am buying a new Lazer Z AS. Is 23 horse power enough to get up hills with 250 pounds riding on it. Also how is the quality of the cut when mowing wet grass at higher speeds?

I have a Lazer Z 23 hp I weigh 180 has plenty of power for hills. Wet grass cuts as good as anyone would expect you will have to slow down some. With 30 customers and the Z you will have time for more lawns because your cut time is reduced. The Exmark is the best ZTR in my oppenion the cut is awsome if you can swing it get the Ultra Vac 3 bagger, makes fall clean ups a whole lot easyier....

I have a 60" Lazer with the 23 horse Kohler. It does fine. I can run wide open on weekly lawns. I hope to buy the Ultra Vac this year.

6'6" 290lbs I ran a 2003 60" Lazer Z with a 23hp Kohler all last year. Traded for a 27 hp in Sept. not because it wouldn't tote me , but because with all of the rain/bi weekly/ultra vac not a good combo. If you cut biweekly and ultra vac you need all 27 horses!;)

We have a 60" ultracut lazer with a 23 Kawasaki. Its good on hills without our ultravac. With the ultravac its a real dog. And, in my opinion it sucks in wet grass or even damp grass. Weve tried all different blades-high lift, low lift, all the sprays for the decks and none of it helps. I think youd have to clean the deck off every night to get good performance out of it and who the hell has time for that. We also have a 61" scag tiger with a 27 puller -it does an excellent job in wet grass, hell it even goes good when its raining. The crew that runs the lazer has to start at 9:00am, otherwise it just makes a mess. GO with the scag.
