    Good luck on whatever you buy. A new mower is a lot of fun, especially if you get the one that suits you most/best. Come back and let us know......with a lot of good clear pics.:D:drinkup:

    Gravely does seem a lot better about fleet pricing than JDas far as single buys at a time, but here, it is all in when you catch either dealership at the right time.
    JD does have its Green Fleet program in place, and has some good deals, but I am not sure what the arrangement is on that.

    Did you ever decide on a mower OP? I'm LOVING my new John Deere 920M!! Just cut a yard today that was way overgrown...would have taken me the entire day to do it with any of my equipment over the last three seasons. Took a bit over an hour and looked good when I was done!

    At the price point that you are looking, no one is making junk. I have used and/or demoed almost everything that you can imagine. That being said, not all dealerships are equal, even among the same manufacturer. Research dealer satisfaction/dissatisfaction, and put that at the very top of your list of criteria when selecting. I have an AWESOME Gravely dealer in my area, with unreal support from Gravely. A great machine isn't that great without support, and an OK machine becomes superb with great support.

    Don't misunderstand my young friend. I am very glad you are trying to learn the ropes, and get some business experience while you're still in school. It's just that you can't make blanket statements like you have about Scag being the best without having real world experience on any/all of the machines mentioned herein. I like Scag products very much, especially the TT, but there are a ton of nice machines out there today that do equal, if not better work.

    Just and FYI- I have all sorts equipment. Something for any and all services I do. Back up stuff to go with it. It all serves me very nicely since I buy good equipment to start with, based on many, many years of experience with it in this and a couple other industries.

    With good work ethics and some self control regarding financial dealings, you'll get there in time too.
