    Just left local exmark dealer. They're also a Toro dealer - I was hoping to get a look at the new Z-Masters. On the showroom floor was a shiny new '04 LazerZ 60" 27HP Kohler. The sticker on the machine read "$8699.00, Fully Assembled". This thing lists for about $9800, right? This sounds like a good deal. What do you think? Only reservation I have is the dealer. They are the local dealer (about 13miles or so), I have never used them, but the salesdudes were less than cooperative when I asked about the Z-Master. The guy said that ever since Toro bought Exmark he has never sold a Toro, and that they were the same machine. I then asked him about the baffle on the new Toro deck, and he just said, like, yea, same machine except for the deck. I don't believe this is the case, is it? The next nearest dealer is at least twice the distance from me, and it would cost me sales tax to boot. Should I just jump in and cross my fingers? Any thoughts?
    Thanks.

    That price is what I would expect to see infact you can probably talk it down to 8100 I got quotes as low as 8000 for that exact machine last spring and they all had the price you mentioned on the tag.

    I got your same price for the same machine with the light kit and suspension seat upgrade.

    Hey CecilcountyLco,

    Is there any decent gravely dealers that you know of in Cecil Co with good prices or even better in DE close to MD. I'm looking to buy a new 36 inch prosteer and I'm trying to find the best deal. I'm in Harford Co.

    I have to agree with the consensus,I wouldn't pay $8700 for it.
