    That sounds like a big difference in price...I hate to hear stuff like that.

    They had a special offer at an open house. They are regularly priced under 6K here, BTW.

    You can get a real mower for that kind of money......

    stay away from Lesco for equipment...you will have service issues down the road and the equipment is not very well built.

    JMO.....stay with brands like ExMark, Scag, Great Dane etc....great machines with awesome dealer support!!

    Funny Grassmaster, we have had no problems with the 4 Lesco mowers we have. One which is over 5 yrs old and runs like a horse.

    How do you know there not well built? Have you worked for Lesco and know this to be true? If there mowers are worthless then so must be everything eles they sell.

    You have been very lucky..

    Lesco mowers are built by MTD and they are not top of the line by any stretch....been there, done that.

    My main point is that there are much better machines at comparable prices.

    yep, and some of those much better machines have MTD built parts on them, some parts that are on other machines are hydro motors, hydro pumps etc. Said it before on some machines theres alittle MTD in them. Oh by the way I have 2 ztr cub tanks, no problems with them. I went with who gave me the best service, could have been very well scag/exmark or who ever. So I can't see how there so much better when they share parts, same deck design, same deck material thickness, same size frame, same engine options, same donaldson filter options, same cup holder, the list can go on and on, it boils down to who give the best after the sale service.
