If you are fine with the hit in difference from what you paid to what you'll get in order to have the machine you want, go for it. It's much more enjoyable to be on something that makes you happy IMO, and worth what it takes sometimes in order to get there.

Just as a referrence, my local dealer will give you exactly half of what he thinks he can get for your machine from a resale when you trade in. He's a very large dealer, one of the biggest in this state and he doesn't deviate from his practice of doing that.

$7300 trade in

$9303 sale price after 20% fleet discount
$9861 with 6% tax
$1771 to pay off the current machine
$232 in a 2% fee for financing at 0%
$125 processing fee

= $11989 / 48 = $249.77

Do they have an ocdc? I'm mainly considering mod for no discharge into flower beds. I have one property that has random beds all over the yard

Gravely makes an attachment for the deck that closes off the chute. Has a handle so it can be opened as needed.

That's correct PSC. Selling price, not amount owed.

But an extra year of warranty now too.

That's what threw me off. I thought that you only owed that amount when I read it. I thought that you had either paid cash or put a huge down payment on it, then I see where you said no down payment etc. I got ya now.

I am not sure if Deere has their own yet or not, but companies like Powerchute make them for the 7 Iron and some are even electrically operated.

I guess things are different here, unless the laws have recently changed.

Seems like a fair trade in to me! I used the same 0% financing.

Yeah it seemed fair I guess. They do have a 160 with the new deck that I sat on. The michigan seat is kind of firm and not soft like the air ride seat. The foot platform is narrow and the deck height adjustment would require stopping and bending way over and moving a pin around. Those combined made me decide on another 460.

The memory foam or whatever Gravely uses in that air seat is amazing, even without the air!

Yes it is very nice! I just got the call that my new machine should arrive middle of next week. He requested the new deck and the regional rep said all the warehouses (mine is coming from PA I think he said) are now fully stocked with the new decks. Dont know why it will take till the middle of next week though because pa is directly above us. Anyway I should be on the new machine next week sometime.
