Just bought this Metro Hp. I installed a tinytach on it yesterday. It was very easy to install. I don't know why Exmark doesn't put one on the metro. Also, picture of my lazer, and new trailer. I bought the trailer back in January. I had a 6.5x 12 single axle. I traded it in for this 6.5x14 double axle. Probably should have gotten the 16, but the 14 fits in my garage with no problems.

Thanks. I paid 3990.00 for the metro hp. That's with tax, mulch kit, and bagger. I paid 8,200 for the lazer, it's a 23 hp, with 60" deck. That was with the mulch kit, and tax. The 23 hp does fine, but I wish that I'd gotten the 27 hp.

I see that Cub 21" push in the background. How do you like it, and how are the swivel wheels on it.

Yep, I've looked at the pictures that you posted of it several times. I used them for reference. The brochure only had one picture, and the local dealer didn't have any in stock. I'm looking forward to using it. I used it for some trim work on a yard for about 10 minutes last week. Still feels a little odd. But, it pulls hills really well. Compared to the 21" that I was using for trim work.

The trailer is made by a local dealer here. Performance trailers. It's a 6.5X14, with double axles. I paid 1,500.00 for it with a weed trimmer rack on it. They also welded d rings to the front that I use to help secure my lazer with.

To be honest, there are some things that I like about it, and some that I don't. If your mowing flat ground it's great. But, it's a heavy mower. It won't pull a hill that well. It's got a 6.5 Kawasaki engine on it, which I like. The swivel wheels work great on flat ground. But, not on ground with a grade. The only yard I use it for now, is a flat postage stamp yard. I paid 500.00 for it at Lowe's last year.

Hey

I bought three new exmarks at the start of last summer and the new ECS handles are great on the arms. I was wandering if you or anybody has any problems with their Exmarks. I am considering switching over to all Deere because of the customer service they provide is top notch.

I think it was 41.00 total. Very easy to install.

Haven't had any problems. Although, I bought my lazer in August 04, and just bought the metro. I haven't heard of any problems with exmark.
