    Do you have a (lower) price for the aerator only? Keep in mind this looks to be a 2011 model with the older hydraulic pumps & shorter stander platform. I can pick up. Thanks!

    Hi Guys,
    Thanks for the interest. Let me think about the price for a day or so. I am not really needing the money yet. Will get back,

    From everything I have been told Toro does not transfer warranty's on products. I ran into this issue with a Grandstand. I would buy it for 7400 if you would be willing to help with the commute a little. I would be coming from Raleigh NC. Otherwise it is not worth the difference from me just purchasing one new. I can get a demo unit for 8800 out the door. The only perk for getting yours is the spreader. I would have to do it next weekend or the following week, Otherwise I'm getting a new one.

    Toro may not transfer but Exmark told me it would. 8800 out the door is good if tax isn't added on. @6.7% (Raliegh tax rate) that puts you at about 9389.60 minus 1100.00 spreader...but at least it's closer to you.

    Actually, I just found one for 7k out the door with 11 hours on it. Unless you can beat that I will have to pass on your deal at this time.

    $8500 for a brand new Exmark. $7900 for an Exmark demo with one hour on it, but the 2013 demo unit cannot be sold for a month or two. (rules) There's a Toro on ebay I passed up. Location: Georgia. Seller's counter offer = $8000. No tax. Free shipping. 4 hours on the unit.

    Demoed an Exmark last week. Only pulled 3/4 inch plugs at 300 lbs down pressure. The tires were actually off the ground.
