I used to cut 20-30 accounts years ago, now just my own 1.5-2 acre lawn. Im still using my 1996 Exmark Lazer Z 60 inch. Owned it for 14 years. Its time to replace it. I will only be cutting my own lawn with a new mower. Im not sure if everything new will be better since this mower is a dinosaur, but it is built pretty solid. 1600 hrs and going strong. Im looking at the john deere 915, or the exmark radius. Best price i got on a new 915E is 7800 plus tax. The radius looks a bit cheaper. The jump to a sale Lazer E series or Tiger Cat is pretty big. Lazer Z 60 e series for $9500 was the best i found. Not sure on the cat but trying to spend less. Are these decent mowers? I want it to feel decent since Im used to a Lazer at least, granted its 20+ years old.
