The Exmark Laser Z X-Series zero turn mower is the premium mower in the Laser Z line-up. It is almost an identically mower to the Toro 5000 series (minus the deck), but for obvious reasons since Toro does own Exmark. The X-series is also comparable to the Ferris IS 3200Z and the Scag Cheetah. Let’s dive in!
The X-Series features either the Kawasaki FX801V or Kawasaki FX921V engines. They are plenty of of power for the mower. They get the job done and are built for handling commercial settings.
- 60″ or 72″ Full-Floating UltraCut Series 6 Deck
- Parker Unitized Pump and Wheel Motors
- 11.5 MPH
- 12 Gallon Tank (Single Tank)
- Patented RED Technology
- Suspension Seat
- 5-Year or 1500 Hour Limited Warranty
The floating deck technology the Exmark Laser Z X-Series features gives a wonderful cut. It is great with side discharge or a mulch kit. The floating deck is helpful with avoiding scalping turf. The mower cuts well in many different applications such as wet areas.
This mower is built durable. Exmark has been around for a long time and always been known for building sturdy equipment. I have recently heard of some decks have problems with blowing holes in them and spindle problems.
I haven’t heard this much but definitely more often than I use to. Nonetheless this mower will hold up well. Also, with the 1500 hour warranty you will get plenty of work done with the machine.
The comfort of the Exmark Laser Z X-Series has improved over the years with the addition of the suspension seat. It is still a fixed and rigid frame though. On very rough terrain you will definitely feel them.
This will inevitably cause a little more fatigue but the seat does help a good amount. It is way better now than it was when it just had a regular seat… man that thing was rough!
Exmark Laser Z X-Series have a very clean and modern look to them. They are simple and straight to the point. Not that flashing and not that boring. They are definitely large machines that make them look like they’re going to do some work!
This mower is equipped with the industry norm for safety. Kill switch on the seat, seat belt, and roll bar.
The X-Series looks like it starts around $12,000. This is a competitive price point compared to other mowers in this market. For more accurate pricing please check out Exmark’s website.
