Got the New Exmark 21 today..Take a look

Heck with it $100 off the price, Paid $899.95 then Tax, Total $962.95. Not a bad machine. Looks cool, and feels tough. Now lets see how it performs.

Which model?

Thanks for the photos. Can we get some close shots of the height adjustment system, both front and rear? Also, how the bag comes off, and is replaced? Underside of the deck?

How does the ground drive speed control feel at first glance? Hard to maintain speed?

Does it feel cumbersome when handling behind the handles -- long and stretched, or short and compact?

What is it replacing? Or, adding to the equipment list? Why did you make this choice?

Sorry for the barrage of questions, but you may be the first to get your hands on one of these new models.

I'll get more pics put up. The model is EC21KAY. My dealer just got them in this week. Seems to hold the speed fairly well. Has a finger tip handle for the variable speed, very easy to grab. It is very fast..I just don't know how it would cut at that speed. (book say 4.2 mph). The handles are adjustable for different height's of the operator. I'll take a close up of this feature. I've only owned the cheap home depot toro in the past and decided to up grade to a commercial type. The rear wheel's move up and down very slick with the pull of a handle. I'll have a close up of this to show how it works. The only thing so far that I feel may be a problem is belt under the deck is exposed. I'll post a pic. At first glance the one thing that caught my eye was the way it looked (The black tires and rims). More picture will be on the way

Is that mower comparable to the toro commercial 21's ? the last ones i saw were almost identical to the toros. For some reason it looks notas sturdy as the tors. however i like the bagging set up and the price, does it suck up leaves very well? I am thinking about slowly changing over to the exmarks, simply for the pricee, the new toros are like 1300 or sumin like that. interested to see ho u like it..
