At this point, no I don't NEED another mower, but I've been expanding every year and I was maxed out with the 148 this year. I'm afraid that after I've tried the 400 I'm not going to want a 200 series.
I was also looking at an 8x18 trailer to upgrade from my 6x10 and the financing was horrible. I'll be able to roll the trailer into the same financing which would be awesome. I'm going to try to get him down a bit more. Maybe I'll install the bagger system myself. I'm mechanically inclined so I should be able to handle it. It's just a bit higher than I expected with the promotion they are running.
