    I have come across two 60" exmark turf tracers. Both are 06 models. One has 600hrs and the other has 1150hrs. both are in excellent condition. If I can pick them both up for 4300-4600, should I jump on it? I was planning on sticking with scag and toro but for a deal...whatever. What do you think?

    not sure what you're wanting an opinion on. you've found two really good mowers (IMO) and can get them for less than $5000 and want opinions. if you've got the cash and work for them why not.

    not trying to sound harsh or like an a$$ but that sounds great to me. good luck

    after my reply i went back and read your first post. when i replied i didn't realize they were turf tracers, but i still think that's a pretty good price for the two. i thought they were lazers. if they are in as good a shape as you say i think they would be good. check on the maintenance that has been done. now you can use toro and exmark and keep it all red.

    we've used exmark lazers and they've been great. my dad traded his exmark for a scag tiger cub. i believe his is the last year they were called tiger cubs and scag renamed them the tiger cat the next year. i believe the only reason he got the scag was because he doesn't do as much as he used to and price was the main factor. other than that i don't know anything about it as i've never used it.

    I have experience with toro, scag and wright standers. As far as color, Im using an enclosed trailer, so I dont care about that. Im just trying to get a good deal on good equipment since Im starting with all of my own money.

    absolutely, you could snatch em up and possibly turn around and sell the one that has more hours or trade it in on something smaller.
