Looks Great! If you don't mind my asking, what did the truck cost you and what dealer did you get it from?

The truck was $42,000 and we sort of got it through Smith Ford. We had to do things a little differently though. The owner of the estate I work on is on the board of directors of Ford Motor Company so he had to order the cab and chassis directly from the plant. then it was shipped to Dejana to have the body installed. Smith Ford was the go between really for all of the scheduling and paperwork. we also registered it with Farmer plates. I saw the original cost before all of his discounts and it was like 50,000 so we saved a bunch of money...

I just want to know why all you guys spend so much money on these trucks? Out here that truck would only go for $36K. I know that there isn't going to be a $15K price difference only a couple states away.

BTW nice equipment. Do you have any other attachments for that kabota?

We don't qualify for all of the commercial discounts and such, besides, the man who owns the estate I work on is a multi-multi millionaire so money wasn't really an issue.
The only attachments we have for the Kubota are a manure spreader and a riding ring fluffer thing. We have a Cat 242B with an auger, forks, bucket and brushcutter so that does most of what we need. We also have a brand new John Deere 6403 with a puny loader and a 15' batwing mower for our fields. I'll get pictures of those too...

36K is without the commercial rebates - $33K is with them.

You should blow off your equipment each night. Grass on decks is bad news!

TLS - we usually only blow them off every once in a while. bad maintenance I suppose. The exmark you have for sale is the same one as ours. what made you go with the hustler?

Had for sale....It sold in 3 days for 1/2 what I paid for it. I still have the Ultra-Vac for sale though.

What made a 5+ year eXmark fan abandon ship.....six capital letters....T R I T O N :rolleyes:

I just wasn't impressed at all. I tried to be, but my heart really liked the SuperZ. It was a tough decision, but life if full of those, and I'm used to them now.

The exmark forum is full of bad things about the triton. I think they made it too difficult with all of the adjustments that can be made. Good in theory, not so good in real life....
