ZTR pricing 2004

All,

I've been looking around for a ZTR and figured I'd let everyone know the prices I received in the Northern VA/Western Va area.

all 2004 models with 60" deck and 27hp air cooled Kohler.
(trying to keep apples to apples)

Bobcat..............$7750 to $8295 with the 8295 being a 25hp Kohler, yep you read that correctly.

Hustler Z..........$7190 this is with rebate my dealer says is coming soon to $8400.

Lesco...............$6275 to $6375 everyone about the same.

Exmark............$7395 to $8340 same dealer that gave me the 8340 quoted 7195 for a 23 Kohler, $1150 for 4 hp?????

Toro 500 series....$7750 to $9200

everyone seems to be within a few hundred of each other, I guess it's just which machine you prefer.

good luck and as always keep up the great info.

Jim

if you're looking at a 27hp, check into a fuel injected 28hp.

Do the math, the fuel savings adds up.

I got an 04 Lazer Zefi, with a roller, mulch kit, and a vac for 10,800. I think the mower only was 9000, and he said 8000 for the 27.

in nj I found Toro and exmarks prices to be reversed.

I got a toro z500 for 7300 and the exmark dealer wanted 8,000

I also did buy at the end of the season so I am sure the prices were discounted

I paid $6715 plus tax a few months back for my Hustler Z 52 inch with 23 Kawasaki. I added a mulch kit, blow out kit and set of gator mulching blades. Total out the door was $7350. I love the mower and it's the toughest piece of equipment I've ever owned. I demoed all the big names and Hustler won hands down. Good luck

Kelly's Landscaping:

This is true, Scag should have been on my list but I didn't price them since I kind of already knew that they are more expensive with no real benefits over the other top entries.
I had looked into their w/b's before buying an exmark. ( I know, I know just because the w/b's are more expensive doesn't mean that the ztr's are.) when I spoke to a dealer that sold both Exmark and Scag he also mentioned that the scags are more.

Another update to the original post, I did find a dealer with a Super Z 60" 27Kohler at $7350. He has some kind of deal on his supers because his hustler Z's are $7500.

Scags aren't that more expensive unless you go to 29 DFI or 31 Briggs aircooled (which many others don't offer yet) & you do get more benefits with Scag than others.

Hey chevyman, Just out of curiosity - what about wheel alignment on those IS mowers? I once heard or read somewhere that it can be a problem and hard to correct. Do you know anything about it?
