I'm not currently in the business yet, but looking to get into it as a "side business". I work FT as a firefighter and work 24 on 48 off. There is a good bit of competition in my area, but alot of growth/ building also. Anyway, I'm looking to buy a 152Z if everything works out. The dealer doesn't have a 52" for demo, so gonna demo the 148Z with 21hp Kaw Friday. The dealer is very accomodating, and I know one of the guys there. The price I got for the 152Z is $7,276 out the door. Unsure of this is a good price, seems a little high to me. I've sent emails to the next 2 dealers for a price check. They are over 30 miles away, whereas this one is about 5 miles away.
