    This Friday, my local dealer is having an open house with Exmark reps there. The dealer told me that I can negotiate prices with the reps and get a good deal. I am looking to get a Lazer Z HP 56" with 27Hp koeler, ultra vac, striping kit. I am very interested in this new Triton deck. Just wanted to know how much I can talk the reps down on prices? I think the mower is stickered at $8499 or somewhere in there. Thanks for any help given.

    My dealer lowers the price on each piece of equipment by $300 for their open house. So probably a little more than that, depending on how good you are at negotiating and how much leverage you have with previous purchases and repairs.

    I'm curious..... Why an HP w/ 56" and not a full size Z with a 60? only a 4" difference. My thinking is that for a few bucks more, the resale might be higher on the full size vs. the HP. Just a thought.

    The 56" Lazer-HP will have a better trim side then the 60" Lazer. Now the 66" Lazer will have a great trim side instead of the 60" deck.

    I love my HP and am buying another but I would save your money on the Ultravac. It one of the few purchases I regret. It sucks - and not in the way it should.:)

    Why does it suck? I heard good things about it. If its the grass clogging, I think all vacs clog with heavy wet grass. Do you have a vac system that is better? Also, what horse power are you running? I am getting the 27 hp which should have no problem running the vac system.

    Hah, have you seen the trim side on a 72'' XS :eek: :eek: :eek:
    Was at my dealer getting some misc items today and they had one on the floor. All I can say is WOW that is the biggest mower I have seen in my life. Wish I had one in my own arsenal :cool:

    Gamba - Im also picking up the 56" HP w/ the 27HP Kohler.. looks like an AWESOME machine. What do you mean by "better trim side"?
