I had the same issue last fall with my new Exmark. So I sold it this spring for $6500.00 and bought a new one fire $7900.00 I felt like a more than fair trade $1400 for 300 plus aerations any day in my book. Fall mail soon...

Exmark vs TURFCO owner's manual

Larry, you have to admit those were the best 40 hours you have aerated though. We got an xt5 this fall for a new wb and while you say it pulls the best plugs, I think its plugs suck.
My Exmark manual doesn't even show details on how to change the oil. What's up with that?

Conversely >> TURFCO provides "many pages" of completely detailed diagrams. Right down to the nuts & bolts. There's even 39 pages for the hydro tranny alone!!!

Now I'm thinking between the lines. Anybody else "wondering what's up"? Kinda curious.
