We are adding a 72 this season and I'm looking for decent bang for the buck. This will be a crew machine so extra comfort/power is not really necessary as much as simplicity/durability (idiot-proof). The lazer AS prices out nicely at about $9400 with the 28 kawi and no-flat front tires. Also cub cadet is selling the m72 tank with 37 kawi and a little more speed for $9499 with either the new or old deck. I know ferris was selling is3100's with the 32 briggs for under $10,000 last year but now I'm told you need to pay over $11,000 for the 37 kawi model and the briggs is no longer available with a 72inch deck. Anything else come in at or under $10,000? Anyone have experience with the exmark AS series or the cub m72? Thanks.
