    Hi, everybody--

    I've found a 2001 Lazer Z demo model at a dealer. 60" deck, 25HP KOH, 77 hrs. Comes with full eXmark warranty. They want $6,995.

    Any comments would be appreciated!

    Try to get them to knock off a couple hundred more. Then your getting a deal. Not much of one now.

    That's what I was thinking, too, Hoss. It's an okay price but not a great deal.

    Only one Exmark dealer here in Evansville and this is the third largest city in Indiana. But he is very high on his prices. That unit would run me new 8600 and thats the best deal he will give hes also a big John Deere dealer. All of his Exmarks come with a donalson air filter i guess thats why he thinks he can get the price he wants, so to me that sounds like one heck of a good deal. 77hrs is like mowing 2 weeks not many hrs.

    Mark,

    We've got a dealer here just like the one you mentioned: has TWO eXmarks in stock and could care less if he sells them. But, man, does he have JDs! Caters mainly to retail customers. Too bad, too, because he's only 2 miles from my house. :(

    I paid $6995 + tax for a new 60"/25hp Kohler. There is a demo at the dealer with 15 hours for $6695.

    Thanks for the info, Tom. My gut feeling was that $6,500 might be a fairer price.
