Pulled the trigger/ New Exmark 30 for me...
Well today I picked up my new mower. I went ahead and purchased the Exmark 30 with the mulching kit for under 1900 bucks AFTER tax AND a 4 year w/no interest plan. I know, I know...shoulda paid cash, but it just wasnt in the cards and I couldnt pass up this deal. I didnt get a chance to use it yet, but as we head into this season, I'll put updates in here as I get to use it over time and different conditions for others to read.
After finally getting my hands on it, i was surprised that it doesnt FEEL to much heavier than my honda 21. I'm sure it weighs more, but its balanced fairly well. It will require more effort in the turns, and pulling it backwards when necessary, but overall my first impression is a positive one, and it appears to be built very well. Time will tell on how well it performs, so subsribe if you like, and I'll try to post a few updates in here as we go through the seasons, and different conditions. Because I purchased the mulch kit, i can also compare the bagging, vs stock blades mulching vs Mulching bladees and baffle installed.
