but as I said in fort wayne any way the scags, walkers, wrights, shindys and redmaxes are higher prices compared with the exmarks, toros and stihls. and I don't feel any of those brands to be superior to the exmarks, toros and stihls so I stick with the exmarks, toros and stihls.
He's not bad at all. He really marks his demos down. Could have got a 36 vride 5 hours with full waranty for $4g but backed out cause i heard so many say not that good on hills..

Keep the prices high!

Makes it more difficult for the riff raff and weekend warriors to jump right into the good stuff.

I think Exmark should raise their prices even higher. WTH, i think 18 or 19K sounds good to me. Gonna go buy 3 tomorrow.

Could open up a good business opporunity for someone to fully recondition them and resell them. My dad made a ton of money doing that with cup soda and coffee machines...rip the whole thing down, repaint, rebuild and good as new for half the price. We had less service calls on the rebuilds than on new machines.

Considering they bought out Encore, it looks like they'll be taking a bite out of the market.

They'll just buy the cheap crap and STILL lowball jobs because they didn't pay a lot for the mower.

Hopefully Toro/Exmark will fold. Then we won't have to listen to YardBoy28. LOL

When I get into my 60s Im just gonna buy craftsman or similar riding mowers, 10k for a lawnmower is redicilous.

i agree with everyone saying that prices are high on all machines, but you have to look at it as an investment. if you're running it 5+ days a week all season, you're going to make money. mowers will last years and thousands of hours if they are properly maintained. if you can't afford the top dollar mowers, then you don't have enough properties, it's that simple. i look at anything i purchase that is expensive and I make sure that i will be able to utilize it to its full potential and have it make me money. just my .02

yes, very true. but why spend 10k for a mower when you can get one that will do the same thing for 6-7k

that's my point between exmark, toro, scag, walker, etc.

in my neck of the woods the price of the exmarks and toros is cheaper than the scags and walker. and I personally don't feel the scags and walkers are any better than the toros and exmarks.
