    It All Depends On Your terrain. But I Can Get As Low In The Seat Of The full size Lazer To Match the Height Of The Turf tracer, Not HP. So If you Can Do All your accounts With a Rider It's Better. Try To Carry Only One Mower If You Are a solo Opp.

    Harry to me The 2002 And up Lazers are The same Size As The walks. I Can get as Low as a TT. But the riders are faster For There reasons. I Don't Do gated yards Or yards that I Need a walk. If You are By Your self It takes To Long to change Mowers for 25 Or 30 dollars. Think About It. |John.
