    anyone own a lesco z-two 60" with a 25 kawasaki? i have been shopping around for a ztr, for next season, if not before. stopped and looked at the lesco's friday. they are asking $6600 for the 60" w/ 25 hp kawi. scag wants $8300 and eXmark wants almost $8k for the same machine. why are they so much cheaper? could you give me some pro's and con's of this machine? thanks in advance.

    Can't get service for one thing. At our service center if you need repairs you have to take them 45 miles away. Some parts are cheaper that are used on them.

    We have the same machince. Has 400hrs on it no problems so far.We do drive 2.5 hrs to have them fixed, but its worth it to us.
    We also have 3 other lesco mowers. No problems with ours.

    i can do all of the repairs in my shop as needed. how hard will it be to get just the parts for us to do the repairs?

    I have a couple of them, except there yellow and called cub commercial Tanks, I've had no major problems with them, we mow up to 88 acres a week with these 2 mowers. They pretty much have the same hyd motors and pumps as the others, same deck thickness etc.

    oh ya forgot, the 60" has a 23 kaw, and the 72" has a 28 Generac
