I just checked my local For Sale paper and saw a 60" Exmark Lazer for $3500. Have been seeing these type of deals for the past few weeks. So like someone else mentioned, check your local papers for the used equipment, now is the time for deals.

yes i just looked at the price averages in the hustler sponsor forum. i like the price of this mower and looks pretty decent mower also the bagger is not like $1000 so this would be a good mower to look into. thanks for all the input u guys really helped me out.

high class resi = crap

just finished patching my deck in multiple places (cub rzt 50), 250 hrs on it. granted i live in a sandy area, but it is just not built strong enough.

the cub RZT 50 is not high class resi. they are just for homeowners. the fastrack has a commercial warranty on it. also the deck isnt stamped either.
