    I want a 60" deck. My largest property takes me six hours to mow with my 48" lazer hp with 23 kaw. I think I would like to try a new front runner. Here is a few questions. Gas or Diesel? Mid mount or out front? Which is faster? Which cuts better in uneven ground? My dealer is tring to sell me a 60" XS with 31hp. How much better will the new deck design be on the 06 line?

    6 hours :eek: ? Looks to me you are targeting the wrong properties unless that one property is paying you $600 a cut. I would find some yards that would better suit a 48" mower, and save that $9500 for a rainy day.

    I would definentally wait for the 06 models they are supposed to be sooooo incredebly. The deck is 6" deep and supposedly never clogs up. Also the cut is really good (better than before). And the hydrolic pumps are upgraded with more valves to run more smoth......so wait

    Red truck,
    Remember the Lazer HP is a a little bit of a slower Z Top speed of only 8.1 mph... On bigger open properties you need that extra 2 mph You would get from a Lazer Z... The XS is going to give you an extra 3.9 mph....
