    If you're in good shape financially, and that's really what you want and need, then get it. Personally, for my situation, and the time of year, i'd wait.

    While those are both awesome mowers, you could probably get them for 1-2k less than that. Then again I am not too sure on prices for the X series Lazer z, the same Turf Tracer I was quoted $7,750 for new from my dealer, not sure on the prices for them where you are.

    That might be a decent deal in the spring but not this time of year.

    Hope that price includes tax, everything full of fuel, and a couple free trimmers!

    Print these posts out and take them to the dealer and tell him if he wants your business he'd better come down on his price, NOW!!! It will let him know that he's not the only show in town (he may be, but don't let him know that).
