New 72" exmark

Love it, but those semi pneumatic tires gotta go!



Posted via Mobile Device
My boss was like "I coulda sold you a bad boy for $3k cheaper and you wouldn't have to swap tires to make it ride better" he got a 61 xp and I already had to adjust his valves at 120 hrs. Good riddens to valve adjustments! Although the bad boy does ride better than this exmark, that beautiful ride only lasts a few hundred hours and you gotta replace all that stuff. Need a mower to last the ages. Everyone that has bought one from our dealership loves em.

You will like the fuel economy as well. My front tires got better with time.

Your gonna have some scalping with a mower that's spread out like a big crab I don't care who it's made by. But it's minimal. The way the deck is hung it floats extremely well which contributes to less scalping. I wouldn't try to mow any small residential yards with it though.
The few yards I have are all open. I mainly got it for up keeping my ranch. By far the quietest and smoothest lawn mower engine I have ever owned. Mowed 2 hrs yesterday in low and it only used 1 bar of fuel
