Farmer's Insurance has awesome rates - if you want my agent's name, PM. She really hooked me up with a great deal.

You want a great insurance carrier? Here's what we use, and after much careful shopping, no one can even TOUCH these rates/coverages. Call Pat(ricia) at Potter & Roose Ins.. 810-767-8590. She hooked us up through Allied Ins. This is funny, because we (her and I) were just talking about this Wednesday. I had just asked her if she is able to cover people from out of town. She said absolutely, no problem. By the way,they also carry comm. vehicle insurance, as well (that would be Sheila). Just please tell her (them) that Joe from Ground Control sent you.

Joe, it's nice to know I won't have to shop around. They've got me as well! P.S. Don't tell 'em Joe sent you, tell them Marc Stine sent you, and ask for Deb, LOL!!

I'd check e-bay first. I got a heck of a deal last year on a 60" exmark with a bagger. It's kind of one of those right place/right time deals, but if you're not in a hurry... Do a google serch on "used (your preferred brand) zero turn mowers". You'll probably find dealers you never knew existed. I did that this winter with a specific brand of sprayer I was looking for and found one listed in a snowmobile swapper-go figure! Check the paper, one just showed up today in our paper (it's that time of year). Obviously the marketplace here. If I think of anything else I'll check back. Good luck.

I'm a huge Ebay fan.. I've bought and sold many things, including 3 vehicles... but I have not brought myself to buying lawn equipment on there yet!

There's just something I like about buying from a good dealer whom you know will cut you a good deal and be there to stand behind it. Plus you get a warranty, which can always save you a wad of cash.
Does anyone else feel this way?

Brand New ZTR... $10,000
Knowing that if it breaks down your dealer's got a backup for you... priceless
