Is there a time of year when these mowers are discounted, like winter time? This will be my first commercial mower and I want to buy right.

Used equipment gets really cheap in autumn and winter for obvious reasons.

Waiting till next spring for the new models might be a good idea but you should get the best deal now. I think I saw the 12 month free financing on the website. Just make sure to pay it off or refinance before the free financing is up.

I would wait until spring if you are going to buy a new mower. The new Exmarks are very different (deck sizes) so maybe you will fall into something. I looked at a 04 demo Exmark TTHP 52" and it only had 25 hours on it but it was only discounted $300.00 from a brand new one.WTF!

In my area there are no leftover Exmarks to get a discount on. The local dealers here sell them faster than they can get them. One dealer sells several hundred a year and doesn't discount anything. Supply and demand.

Remember there are some new deck designs and other features coming out on the next generation of exmarks. If you want a better mower you might want to hold off. 4 years from now the $500 or whatever you save now won't seem that big a deal vs. a mower that mows better or faster.

First of all, i do agree i would wait for the 06 models......but i bought a 60"Turf tracer new this spring.....it had 80 hours on it and i got something like $1300 of the maufacturars retail for just 80 hours.....and it still has a full factory warrenty......good choice with the exmark....i love both of mine!

Yeah, I'd wait to see what the Triton deck is all about if you are seeking a rider.

I don't think the walks are getting this deck just yet right?

The best time to buy is when you need the mower. Most dealers are able to balance their inventory to keep from paying floor plan interest so there is really no "best time" to buy.

Remember, the mower is an income producing piece of equipment and the timing of a purchase should be dictated by your business requirements.

Interest rates are dictated by the credit worthiness of the purchaser. Low credit scores equals higher interest rates and more restrictive terms.

Just to let ya'll know. Our Exmark distributor had their annual dealer meeting this past weekend w/ a couple of Exmark factory staff on hand. From Exmark executives, there will be a 34" and 44" introduced in EARLY spring 06'. The 34" has integrated hydros and a 19hp Kawi. I'm sure the 44" will be equipt the same.
