26 inch mower

I heard some of you talking about a new 26 inch mower, maybe X mark? Anybody have some new info? I would appreciate it. For some of you out there, I did a search and I have a license, so theres no need to answer like that.

Which is exactly what a homeowner brand mower is intended for .... unless it's some commercial type of unit.

Exmark has introduced a new 26" mower. It will be in addition to the current line of Metro's. Honda + Kawi engine choices, 6 HP or 6.5 HP. They were selling them at a local "Pro-Day" this week for $1250. They had them on display but you would not be able to take delivery until about April. Then the cost goes up to $1500!

Man, we have not even gotten to see this darn thing yet. From what I hear, it looks maybe like an old Dayton, with a low deck in the front, and the engine at the back over the rear wheels.

Weight looks to be about 160-170lbs. [ 26" 6.0 HP (3600 RPM) Kawasaki Self-Propelled BBC (Blade Brake Clutch) w/Bag and Mulching System ]

Available April 2005.

I do not see an option here for the Honda engine.. looks like the 6 hp Kawi is the only one.

And yes, $1500 is right at the retail price.

On the 26" Exmark the motor sit back off the deck. The deck is powered by a belt from the motor, similiar to a larger walkbehind.

$1,500.00 for a 26" mower. Unless this will be seing 35+ hours of use per week, why would you spend this much on that small of a machine. Granted, mine is an MTD, and is a "homeowner" machine, the only problem I have had with it in the 2 seaons I ran it was the blade engagement cable. I paid about $350.00 for it online and it was my primary machines until I got my walkbehind this past season. Its paid for itself many times over.
