This is only my third post but I love the info you guys supply. I'm thinking about going full time this year as I just got back from the dealer. He has an Exmark LazerHP 48 in. deck 21 HP Kawasaki for $6999.00 (new). Is this a decent deal? I will be targeting resendential accounts so I want something to get on small properties but still able to cover ground quickly. Dealer support looks good will supply backup Exmark if mine goes. Also has UltraVac unit for $1150.00. Second Question: Do you Exmark owners recommend the Vac unit. I'm thinking primarily for leaves or will mulching the leaves powder them up pretty good? Third: Does the mulching system provide a good looking cut compared to just discharging? I will be working in some tight places and may not want to blow grass all over flower beds etc. THANK YOU for any feedback!
