    Found a used eXmark Lazer HP 17hp with a 44" deck today. 1999 or newer. It's at a dealer and he said (on the phone, i didn't look at it) that the price tag is $2850. This isn't much more than a new 36" Metro. $2299 is what he said for a Metro 36". Would $2400 be a OK offer on the Lazer? Is this an ok model? I know reduced trim area on the deck but it should do fine for what i want and be perfect size otherwise, and good price I think. waddya think? Good/bad??? Do these have the same great cut like all other eXmarks and do they stripe good (this is important to me L0L)thanks,

    I have owned the eXmark 44/17 for over 2 years now. Beats ANY walk behind! I replaced a Toro belt drive wb with this mower. Unbelievable difference.

    I wouldn't dream of selling mine for $2800...so I guess that means I think its a great deal. They are easy to service and the cut is great! No striping though, they don't make roller bars for anything under a 52".

    Buy it, you won't regret it

    Guardian, I am glad to hear you say how much better it is than a Toro WB. I was going to get a Toro WB 36" Tbar actually this summer but while pricing he told me about this one. No warranty, but that won't change my mind, i can work on this stuff. Does it still stripe anyway even without a roller? can you post a pic of a lawn you cut with it pleez? thanks,

    I wouldn't bet on getting it for less than the $2850. Thats a good price in my opinion. It will stripe fine.

    Hehe, don't-cha wish ya could LGF!!! Not sure if i'll get it yet. I agree, good price, but I don't have the money yet.
    Esby, I don't have any clue about the hours. It wasn't at this dealer but another in the chain and they didn't include the hours in the little report thingy about it.

    Maybe it's just me, but i think you said you cut your lawn and a neighbors. One day you love your rear engine rider, now you want a $3k machine. I'm just wondering how you plan on paying the mower off if your one house you mow is a $20 job.

    Maybe it's just me, but for two lawns i don't see a need to replace your riding mower.

  10. In that case, email me the numbers.
