I can't get a demo for an Exmark mower on my properties but I can get another dealer to bring up Ferris mowers from the same city! He also said he would have the Toro Rep meet us here also ! Your closest dealer to me is 75 miles away but hey they are way high and said no to a demo ! They said I could maybe drive one around in the lot ! Then again they are a full line John Deere Implement company and they push Walker really hard ! So they don't care. The next dealer I talk to is more promising but also he is 225 miles away ! ( same area as the company who sells Ferris, Toro, G D, Bobcat, Cub Cadet) This dealer is one of your so called Pro Certified Dealers. His prices are better but he has no interest in a demo here ! He says find what you want and then call me ! According to the guys on Lawnsite the 52" deck sounded like what I was after! He says not in the Lazer Z HP , He says it is a terrible bagging machine. I am beginning to get some of the larger properties and so I thought well a 32" or 36" walk behind along with a 60" ZTR with bagging system would be just right. He says the Liquid cooled 60" Kawasaki 27 HP is not worth the money ! What gives ? I am going to spend around $9500 to $10000 on a mower and nobody wants to demo an Exmark ? I can't get a Demo on a Walk Behind either ! Why would another company be willing to do a second demo 210 miles away when their oputside rep could stay in the big city and sell 7 to 10 times what he will sell me in the 2 days he would be on the road and here ? Also 1 other question Why no Kawasaki Engines on the Lazer Z ? All Kohler ! Is there an Exmark dealer anywhere near that would be willing to do a demo ? I need a Walkbehind in a couple months ! I will need the ZTR in late summer but my have to hold off until Feb to buy! I was really in Exmark mode but after the dealers have dropped me on my head I am really upset with Exmark! I guess I will have to buy what I can try first ! I guess It will be Great Dane, Ferris, Toro, Cub Cadet, Scag or Bob Cat! I hate to sound like I am upset but I am ! I realize that I am a little off the beaten path but hey I am willing to spend teh money ! I even offered to pay something for a demo and still nothing ! I had it narrowed down to two ZTR's both of which have forums on here and the Other is a Yellow Machine and starts with a letter other than G Same story as Exmark !
