    I know a great deal of you have seen the new Exmark Turf Tracer HP with ECS, but has anyone tried it? If so what did you think? I currently have a few Exmarks and thinking of trading in one of mine for a new Turf Tracer HP with ECS and electric start. Thanks in advance for you help. I need to make a decesion soon because I will need to put a little money into my current Turf Tracer or Trade it for the new one.

    What is the great deal? My local dealer quoted about $4700 for 48" w/17 Kaw. How does your dealer stack up?

    Trade it in!!! I plan on trading one of my Turf Tracers in on a new ECS. I tried them and I really liked using it. That price is about the same as my dealer said.

    I was thinking of getting one for this year myself as my walk behind is getting up there in age. Granted, it's seldomly used, (about 15 minutes a week) I think it would be nice to have something newer like that. I would probably use it a little more, as I would perhaps use it on ditches and stuff that I don't use my walk behind on now.

    Does anyone know when these will be available? I have heard this year and I have heard not until next year. What is the scoop? Surely there is an Exmark rep out there that is going to read this! :)

    My dealer was getting them in this week sometime. They are available this year. I heard that exmark isn't even going to make the old style walk behinds do to the positive response on their new design.

    I know old threads exists of this! There is real value in that old (4wks or so) info! everybody coud share it if you search for it and "bring it back up"!

    I was looking at the ECS.
    But in the end, I rarely can justify bells and whistles (maybe one day!).

    I went w/ 48" MetroHP (belt dr, floater, 15kaw)
    $3000
    I'm happy.
    Although, I'm seriously considering the "micro-mulch" upgrade

    I am trying like heck to get my hands on a hydro ECS unit to test drive, though I just bought the toro belt, hopefully i will be able to get one next year. They look awesome those who have them or have tried to use them, how do you like them.

    Island, what are you saying? I did a search on ECS, this came up, I asked the question? What is your point with the "there is real value in that old (4wks or so) info!"
