    I recently visited my local ex mark dealer. I am in the market for a new machine and I was looking at a 48 inch or 52 inch turf tracer. Almost 6 or 7 grand. They are crazy expensive. Then he showed me a demo 52 inch ex mark vantage with 25 hours on it. He is asking $ 7,100 for this unit. Brand new vantage are around $ 8,500. That is with a couple grand down and zero interest for 48 months. What do you guys think ?

    Not a bad price. Local dealer has a 48" vantage for $8200. Definitely more polished than my grandstand. Salesman said there will be a $500 rebate coming soon on the vantage. It would need to be alot more than that.

    Jump fast, you won't regret it. won't have buyers remorse and will increase productivity. For about a 1400 dollar savings on a brand new machine...I'll come and buy it out from under you if it's not in your garage in a few days.

    I purchased a 52 exmarks demo mid season last year. I love it !!! no regrets. One thing I had the dealer throw in a free oil change and tune up before I purchased the machine. You wont regret it.:clapping::drinkup:

    it's a decent price. I wouldn't say it's a great, jump on it right now price. if you come to Fort Wayne IN you can get it even cheaper.

    are you serious???

    I paid around $7k for my 52" toro grandstand in 09 when they just came out. I wouldn't call a $1500 increase in 4 years going up a lot in price.
