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.
