This message board has been a great help! Thanks! We are getting ready to demo a 2006 Exmark HP 60" mower. We are going to use our new Exmark to mow approximately 4 (poss. more someday) acres of lawn and walnut tree orchard. The terrain is somewhat rough, but not hilly. We are trying to decide between the CT and the HP. We are on a budget, but we don't want to cheat ourselves either. Should we be considering the AS also? Ideally we are ultimately wanting the HP with the 20 horse Kohler and the 52" deck. My main and most important question is how do we go about negotiating the price of this machine? We will probably end up doing the Exmark financing deal too. Will this hurt our negotiating? Thanks for your help!
