Yes, it depends on how much bagging you do. We "mulch" and spread it around as much as possible and only have to collect the grass on like 8-10 properties, so it's just not worth it for me. My dealer is 1 hr away from me - but most of the repairs and maintenance we do in-house and I keep stocked on extra pulleys and belts etc. If you find a guy to work for you who is also a decent mechanic, that's key. Paying an employee $15/hr sure beats the dealer's $55/hr. Make a parts run once in awhile and you're all set. Try them all out and let us know what you get and how you like it. I'm very interested in the new exmarks. My buddy runs Deere's which I've borrowed from him before if we got in a jam and they are nice but also WICKED priced and harder to work on.
