I demoed a Super Z this Wed. (just to be fair) after demoing a Lazer Z a few weeks ago. Here are some of the pros and cons that I noticed. Keep in mind I am comparing to the Lazer Z. Pros- Standard suspension seat Simple design No tools needed to adust belts-all on chains Anti-scalp wheels at the back of mower-like kind of a wheelie bar Very fast Excellent warranty Oil cooler for hydralics Very big hydro pumps Nice cut Bagging system is supposed to be super fast to hook/unhook No flipping switches from one fuel tank to the other Cons- I thought the regular Exmark seat was actually more comfortable (Yes, I demoed on the same properties) Speed seemed almost unusable to me-really too fast to be flying around a parking lot-good chance of getting hit by a car. Seemed to be less leg room than the Lazer Z Position of the steering levers was not as comfortable as the Lazer (and yes I did adjust them) BIG chip of paint was missing on one of the front casters. Even if it had been hit, it only had 11 hrs. on it. The exmark had 200 hrs. on it and still looked nice and red. The 24hp Honda was the big let down. Did a "Nice" job, but just couldn't compare with the 27hp kohler of the Lazer Z. The Honda fell flat on it's face when engaging the PTO and had a few clumps in the thick stuff. The Honda (as someone else also mentioned) backfired when shutting down, unless I let it idle for several minutes after cutting. The Hustler did a nice job, and I wished I would have had the oppurtunity to demo a larger hp Kaw or Kohler. However, it just seemed to be lacking something. The best way I can describe the feeling I got is that (IMO) the Exmark was just more "refined". That's the only way I can think of to put it.
