    I'm still in the hunt for the right wb for me
    I know you guys are getting tired of this!!
    Stopped by a Lesco dealer today.They had a 48' hydro w/ 17 kawasaki,elect.start on sale for $3300.00
    So is there really a $1000.00 diff. in the Exmark,Bob cat and others
    .Do these others cut that much better or what?
    I had a couple of Exmark dealers look at my JD 300 for trade in with a diff. of 3000.00 on trade on a viking 48"
    Also still considering the MTD Pro 52" hydro for 2000.00 Maybe not the best choice but, for the money.
    Thanks again

    I probably would have jumped on that MTD for $2,000.

    It came with a sulky that would cost you another $200 out of pocket.

    If you're just starting out, you could have bought a LOT of other stuff with the money you would saved over buying new.

    $1,300 buys trimmers, blowers, hand tools, etc., etc.

    But it looks like it's sold already.

    I was told today that Lesco is getting out of equipment and sticking to fert and stuff. Might want to check into it.

    I was at a lesco near my house and they had the same great deal. The only problem was they didn't service what they sold and if your main mower is out for a week that can cost you a thousand in lost mowing. Thats why I went to an exmark dealer.

    If you buy a lesco, and they quit selling mowers.
    You could take it to a cub dealer for repairs, I have 3 cub tank mowers and none have been in the shop longer then a hour. Only problem I had to take a mower in was for to have them adjust the electric clutch, which now I can do in the field. Take care of them and they will take care of you, this does'nt just apply to cubs/lescos/mtd's/
