That is a reasonable price. Good equipment costs money and makes you money. Buy something cheap and you'll soon be replacing it & buying something you should have bought in the first place. Rule of thumb when buying tools & equipment; buy the best and save money.
I like the Ecolawn, it's a good machine. I own an Earth & Turf 100SP http://www.earthandturf.com/100sp.htm
. It costs a little more, but is a heavy duty machine that can handle the weight (I enlarged the hopper & doubled the capacity) while providing precision control.
