    :dizzy:Has Exmark lost their minds. I knew they were over priced but this is what their local dealer told me they list for. But he said I can buy two of them for $8699 each. Maybe they just want to sell machines to Brickman and forget us smaller fish.

    It wasn't that long ago that you could buy a 25 HP 60" Lazer Z ZTR for $2,000 less than that.

    All these companies now are a joke. I have no loyalty to any of them, including dealers. I buy parts on line and fix or repair myself. I keep back up equipment so I'm never in a bind. Warranties are another joke, what is implied and what is actually covered are completely different.

    Commercial handhelds are now throw aways. I use to keep up on maintenance on mine, now I do the bare minimum to keep them going and run them into the ground, then sell them or toss them aside. Easier just too spend a few hundred bucks every couple years than spend time and money on parts on something that may only last so long no matter what you do.

    New Tax hikes probably play a role in this, along with Obamacare.

    Ya there running about $6500 now for a 36 in TT.. They had a huge price increase about 2 years ago... That mower was about $5700 2 seasons ago..
    Does anyone know what the Scags are price wise?

    Wow...I would have to mow a lot of $15 lawns to every pay for something like that. :)

    There's really not much less to a Turf Tracer than a zero turn rider though.

    Comparable Scag, Ferris and Snapper Pro's 61 in mowers range from $5600-$7000. I run Exmarks now but I guess it's time for a change. This pricing is just stupid. I hope Brickman doesn't contract a different brand for their sake
