I'm new here. I love this site. This will be my first year doing full time lawn care. What do you think about these two mowers for my first year going full time in lawn care?

Exmark Turf Tracer HP 48" Mower (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2372670882&category=50377)

2003 Exmark Lazer HP 52" ZTR (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2372667575&category=50377)

I don't know anything about what kinda contracts you are doing. I find walkbehinds to be unproductive. The exmark is a good choice though.

Welcome to Lawnsite, try the seach feature at the top of the page, and you will find tons of posts probably for that exact question. However, my first zero turn is the Exmark you refer to. I really dont use my 54 w/b that much. If I cant do it with the Z I usually will over bid. But most of my accounts are 1+ acres!

I'm looking at these two mowers on EBAY. Check them out and let me know if they are good deals. Here are the links to the Ebay Auction:

Can't be a 2003. It doesn't have a cannister air filter on the kawi. Its an 01 or 02 model.

03 with 23 kawi. You can also see the 03 muffler goes out the other side.

Notice the front sticker on my 03 (left) the older HP is on the right. Look at the one on ebay.

The mower is a 2003 model based on Model and Serial Number from Exmark.

Where did you get the serial number? If it is its a very early 03 with left over parts from 02.

Just some friendly advice:

If you actually want to buy that mower and not just advertise it for more bids then don't post it on Lawnsite. Unless you want a few more guys to bid against.

Tim I use Gambrel for parts only. Since they no longer are eXmark dealers I will have to change over to Kalb I guess.
