ummmm ok

Walked in Homedepot and saw an Ariens 60 inch "commercial" mower for $9K and it looks like a Husqvarna Frame. Ummm I can buy an Exmark mower for that price.

Stuffs crazy expensive in the big box store. I saw a off brand UTV out at Home Depot for 7K. I can get a slightly used Rhino or Ranger UTV for that price and have a vehicle that can actually work. Funny, you would think if thy need a UTV or a commercial size zero turn, they would know to go to a dealer...

It's an EverRide Warrior pained Ariens Orange. Ariens bought ACI (EverRide) back in 2007.
