Whereas Exmark dealers do not.

We did 280 aerations last fall. Put 75 hours on the Exmark. The unit still runs like new. So I wouldn't be afraid of buying a demo (if you can find one cuz they are very hard to find).

These are the same questions I had before we bought one. But if you're trying to "dicker" and save a couple hundred bucks....figure you can make up the difference of paying a higher price in less than 1/2 day.
280 aerations and 75 hours on the machine. Wow! That's an average of 16min. per aeration. That machine is a producer.
I don't mind spending money, I mind wasting money!
