All Lawns,
Just came in from the 1st round of plowing & sanding :cry: (does anyone know if Spring is coming?) so I figured I'd go on old Lawnsite. Anyway, what kind of handles are on that Lesco (are they like the ecs on the exmark wb?). If you don't mind me asking...what was the payup tag on that unit. I need a 48" or 52" to put on a new truck. Thanks :D

It was on sale for march. $3599 but after taxes $3814. No i dont think its the same as the exmark. I think it would be better than exmarks. never tried exmark.
It works the same as the Wright stander controls. I believe its lesco's new control system. The levers sit in nuetral position, up is forward and down is reverse. Their very comfortable.

Nice new mower there? I'm sure you have you used it already right? How many accounts you maintain over in ft lauderdale?

I drove it for like 20 mins to master it, but it hasn't seen any real action yet. tomorrow will be its first day of action. 70 accounts and growing, i dont actually cut in Lauderdale, more out west by the Everglades

I couldn't imagine why you would want something new after looking at the ferris. It looks like it could last another 10 years! Congrads.

LOL. beleive it or not that mower is only 3 years old. that was after a day where we had some minor rain, the grass stuck to it like glue. That mower has never had a problem since i got it. besides belt replacements.The deck area gets filled up like that at least once a week. I just take the blower to it weekly

Better put the cover on that speaker or you're going to punch a hole in that woofer.

Thanks for the info all lawns. Is that Lesco's regular price or was this a new season sale? So, back to the snow...we are lucky if we'll get the mowers on the lawns by April and thats just for Spring clean-up :cry: . More snow due in Friday night in to Saturday.

Dam rain spoiled my fun. :angry: Got 3 lawns done before it really started coming down. All in all I love this machine, its a real nice mower compared to the old trusty. Yeah that was a sale price. I believe its running til the end of march. Regularly its $3799 BT.

I strongly considerd that same Lesco mower before I finally decided on the Exmark Viking. My area Lesco dealer just didn't impress me.

I looked at several mowers including Exmark. Just too much money, You dont really see that much people with Exmark down here. Its mainly Scag's and Dixies's. You see alot more Lesco's than Exmark. I couldn't pass that price up though. The lesco dealer that i got it from doesn't service mowers either, but theres another one 14 miles up the road that does. I checked it out, and its alright. Plus, i do all of my repairs anyways.

I bought the 54" float deck last year from Lesco for $3995.00. I have 300 hrs. on the thing now and have not had any problems to speak of. The cut is real good and like you said, I cant justify spending the extra 1500-2000 for another brand. Good luck with it
