    I guess I am a sucker for a good deal. I was at our Bobcat Dealer on Friday picking up a MT52 for a song. As everything was loaded on the trailer when I mentioned mowers and needing a different trailer configuration for more space. The BC dealer mentioned that his boss was driving through and dropped off a pair of demo mowers and told him to get rid of them. They are a multi state dealer so I thought... what kind of junk is this. We walk back to see them and there sits two Great Dane mowers. A Hydro 36" WB (22 hours) and a 48" Super Surfer (36 hours).

    The dealer looks at me and tells me that he is just suppose to get rid of them. I look at the price on them and say is this right? Yea.... that's it. Selling them at cost. I look at the hours and hand him my credit card and say OK. So on Monday I have to go back and pick them up since I did not have room on the trailer for them with the Bobcat.

    I really don't need them.... but you never know. I may want to expand again in the future....... :angel:

    Oh yea.... the WB was $2069.00 and the SS was $4030.00. :cool:

    Pistol..... loaded and ready to go. The hours on the machines were run up going from the shop to their front yard for display. Neither have ever cut grass. :waving:
