Yes your dealer will honor the warranty, however he will be loyal to his loyal customers and when one of their machines are down have it back the next day or 2 max. He has a policy board up that says if a machine was not bought from 'XXXX' it will be second due in repair to primary customers. I can't afford to have a machine in the shop no more than 2 days, 3 days plus I'm screwed.

Diesel - I have 2, sold 1 today and the other is still up for sale. 90 hours like brand new both physical and mechanical, suspension seat upgrade 9,000. I am switching to gas, the diesel is too heavy for me in the spring and fall particularly early in the a.m. Between 7-930 when sun hasn't gotten above the trees to dry the ground from the rain the night before.

My dealer once only stocked kawi's and now 80 percent of everything is kohler, people are price shopping now, exmark dealer only stocks 27 kohler next lazers to make the price look cheaper so that's why my dealer ordered kohlers because he 'looked' 1,000 higher on the same machine.

Also, since I have been loyal to him everytime I buy a new piece of equipment he gives me 1,000 worth of blades reg. Maintenance parts etc, which only costs him probably 250 but it makes me feel good plus he always knocks off about 5-750 off each mower anyways on top of the 1,000 in parts.

With the money you save, you can always rent a mower if yours is down a day or two. Just a thought. My store rents 60" ZTRs for $69 per day if you have bought a mower from us.

I bought the G3 29hp Kawi...... WOW! My Toro dealers demo was out everyday/all day last year, so I went to the eXmark dealer and they knew of my company and wanted me to try and exmark so bad they pulled a brand new one out and said have it for a day. Guess they thought I would come back with my checkbook. It was a 27 Kohler and I was not impressed with the lack of power last fall, guess I was used to running the diesels. The 29 Kawi is the closest thing to the power of a diesel. The mower is BAD ASS. I absolutely love it.

mcw615,
So how do you like the G3 after a few weeks? I have been looking at a 29 Kohler EFI G3 for $9350 and a Z500 with a Kawasaki Liquid Cooled EFI for about $1,000 less. I would rather have the Kaw engine but I like the G3 design.

Two things....

1-G3,G3,G3,G3 ALL THE WAY!!!

2- Go with the 29, forget about the liquid cooled, and do not get the 27! Second, pretend Kohler never existed, the one and only recommendation is the 29 kawi. Don't sucker yourself in for the good deal, if your gonna buy a mower... Do it right!

To make it easy for you, I have/had 2 basically brand new toro diesels $14,000 a piece new.. With around 100 hours on them both, shows how long I had them. Yes I saved some fuel and yes I couldn't mow as early in the a.m. Because of the extra weight of the diesel. I basically gave both mowers away at 9,000 a piece and replaced with the 29 kawi G3, AMAZING mowers! For me I am able to mow on hillsides that I used to have to use the 44" WB on. I'm a tight wade man believe me, but if funds are tight I'm telling you wait until you can get the money for the 29 kawi G3 or you will end up feeling guilty that you didn't.
