    Got tired of my old mower nickle and diming me to death, so I broke down today and bought a new Exmark LHP52/23.
    I still can believe I spent that much money. It cost more than my last 2 vehicles combined. (used cars:laugh:)
    But now I have a complete ultra vac system I need to sell.
    Its a 2 bagger made for the older LHP's but it can be adapted to the newer ones too (according to Exmark)
    Now I get to go do 2 lawns in the moring and break the new red beast in the right way.

    Thats what I paid, minus the trade in. Theres a factory special on the 52/23 trivantage (I think)
    My season started today, 70 degrees ouside and mowed 2 today and maybe got 2 new cusotmers. That mower sure rides and drives different than my old one. it was a 98 model

    I'e never understood why people want pics of a mower, they all look alike.... But heres what you asked for, Heres my Early John Deere by Deering before John joined them. The horse died so I had to park the mower
