ExMark Lazer Series Mowers
Exmark Lazer Series mowers are sold as a commercial grade riding mower with available deck sizes from 48″ to 72″. They are available in gasoline, diesel, and propane powered versions in a variety of engine sizes. Known for high speed mowing, these machines have a significant fan base as a result of this speed. New users sometimes have difficulty with the tight turning radius, but become enthusiastic once they get the hang of it.
The transmission on the eXmark Lazer series mowers is a hydraulic system using hydraulic motors for each wheel. Steering is accomplished by using this drive system, much like steering a tank or a bulldozer. This allows for zero turn radius steering. Once you learn how to steer this type of system it is easy to use. The only problem with this system is that repairs can be expensive. Be certain that you purchase your mower through a business that has the ability to handle repairs and honor all warranties.

It is very likely that the reviewers were going to their private spaces when mowing the lawn. Many of the eXmark reviews published on the internet either state that the mowers are fun to use or at least imply that they are fun to use.
