When buying an exmark, or any other commercial mower, when financing it, is it like a car, do you have to fill out paperwork for hours???? Or does it go quick?

Its about half the paper work. But still takes too long.

I have another question, this may sound dumb, but how does a ztr work, how do you go forward, or reverse, and do turns?

to go forward you push the handles forward, for reverse you pull them toward you. For a right turn you let up on the right handel, or pull it back toward you for a zero turn. It may sound hard, but its quite simple. Financing takes about 1/2 hour to an hour depending on how slow they are. Sheffield finance takes only about 5 minutes to approve, then the dealer has to do their paperwork.

Cash or plastic take about 30 seconds at our dealer.They have our business info on file, and every new piece of equipment we buy, they fill out the paperwork for warranties, etc. for us. Keeps us working instead of filling out forms and paperwork.:D

ZTR operation depends on the mower. Demo as many as you can before you buy!!!!

I have used either Sheffield or Yard Card, they both take about 5 minutes. Both are 1 page forms.

Bought my Walker through our local JD dealership and financed it through JD Credit - first time transaction took about 5 minutes from the time I started to fill out the form until I got an approval. Of course, I just bought a new truck and the process was about as easy...almost too easy!

Cash is fast. It's amazing how quick the salespeople will get when you tell them you are going to pay cash. And they will remember you when you come back. I made a $10,000 cash purchase the first time and now they all know me by name when I come in. I don't have a problem getting someone to help me either. I can be out on the lot looking and in a few seconds, somebody is there.
