    We are looking to buy several 60" zero turn mowers for the 2008 season. Will consider used or new. Preferably used at a lower price. I like Exmark, John Deere, and Toro the best. I hear that 2005 and newer Exmarks are better than previous years. Also that JD 7 irons are as good as there is. Any advice?:usflag:

    2007 Grasshopper 729 liquid-cooled kubota 29hp gas 61" for sale with out front deck. Only 93 hours! $9400.00 prolly about $350 to ship to you. Call if you are interested 580 317 7672 Kevin. I would always recommend Bad Boys because of the price point, cut, and ride. They offer a 5 guage 1/4 in deck that is out of this world. This is the 3rd new Grasshopper we have got as a trade in on the Cat Diesel.

    Just to give you a heads up this thread is gonna be a piss*** contest! Go for dealer support and location , location, location! You could have a great mower, but if the service provider is 75 miles away , or even in your backyard, but provides poor customer relations , its a loosing situation. I run Toro Z's and Soon to be Hustler , both dealers are excellent! Best of luck ! :usflag:

    Get a lesco or a cubcadet commercial. For the price you cant beat them.

    Don't buy the cheapest mower you can find, You get what you pay for is typically true in this case! Also be careful buying used, mowers can get pretty beat up if not cared for .

    tell me about it...... i learned the hard way today after talking to exmark today about my mower and its a new mower. they tried to justify not fixing the problem because of the " DEAL " i got on it and this was not the dealer this was the exmark company service department
