    Is it just me or is Exmark starting to get a big head? I have constantly seen thread where people are paying more money for there new exmark, when another mower would have been cheaper. For example, My dealer quoted me $6,400 this spring for a new Lazer Z hp 44". I out right laughed in there face and told them in there dreams. I then went to a Toro dealer (yes i know they are now the same company) and was quoted $6,200 for a Z500 series 52" with the turbo force deck! Now come on here, something doesnt add up. It's like anything i guess. You can buy a Cadillac Escalade for $60,000 with all the bell's and whistles or you can buy a loaded Tahoe for $35,000 when the only real difference is the name on the product.

    EXMARK GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR @$$ because there is other equipment that is just as good if not better at a cheaper price!

    When I was shoppimg for a mower earlier this year I looked at exmark, Toro, Kabota and Gravely...

    I ended up going with the Gravely..

    Saved myself a bundle of money..

    I own a Examrk Lazer Z hp 48" and it now has 1,700 hours on it. I just purchased a Gravely 34Z, I had a Gravely Pro-50 that was purchased new and had 3,200 hours on it and still going strong when I sold it. I also own a 36" scag peice of junk walk behind that I hate with a passion. So what are you trying to get at? When I purchased my 48" lazer new it was $5,300 and now the 44" version is $6,400??????????????????
