We knew that.....well at least I did.
I used to have an Exmark dealer just a few miles away but they closed due to death of the owner. Another shop opened not far away but they were terrible and didn't last long. Now I have to drive about 1/2 hour for parts and service...not all that far but even that can be a pain sometimes.
When it's time to replace my Exmarks I'll probably go with Bob-Cat because that dealer is within 5 miles and excellent, based on my dealings with them and my Shindaiwa handhelds. The thing I really like about them is that they actually stock parts. There's another Shindaiwa dealer nearby but you could buy a new handheld off the shelf and not be able to buy a spare air filter and spark plug for it without them having to order it. I think my shop is better stocked with parts than theirs is, lol.
