New Exmark Mower

Well guys, over the christmas break i picked up a new mower. I got a 52" Exmark Pioneer E series. The reason i went with this choice is because 1. its weight for all of the yards I do 2. I picked up a car dealership and needed the extra mowing capacity 3. I have always wanted a ztr for ease of use. The reason i went with Exmark is because of OVERWHELMING Exmark dealer support in my area. I had not heard much about this mower because it is a fairly new modelbut when i talked to the dealer he told me it has quickly become there best selling ztr in the last few months because of its weight and size. I have to say I love it. i wish i had the extra money to get the S series for the deck and engine but the dealer actually talked me out of it saying there wasnt that much difference other than pumps and blade clutch. I was also going to get a 48" but was able to negotiate the 52" for the same price as the 48. Ill get some more pics up later.

Yeah, looks good. I probably would have gone for the S series though.

Yeah i would have loved to have gotten the S but I'm in college right now and could justify spend an additional almost 2k for it just because I wanted it. For that I may as well bought a lazer haha the only thing really uneasy about is not having the canister air filter but I can deal with cleaning it more often.

Do not clean the air filter more often than recommended in the engine manual. Overservicing will cause more dirt to end up in your engine. Very nice mower!! I love it when they are all clean and shiny. Try to post an update on how it runs, cuts, etc. Good luck this season!

Correction lol I mean replacing the air filter sooner than needed. I am a FREAK about maintenance. Yes shiny is always good! And will do and good luck to you as well!
