exmark Metro 36inch deck ECS 13hp kawa $2600?
48 inch $2800?
Those prices seem a little high to me...even with the ECS. I could be wrong, but I would try to get about 200 - 300 less than those prices.
all Kawa engines ( as suggested by the dealer)
the dealer also suggested sticking with the pistol grip instead of the ecs system....saying that it will be easier to manuever since it is a gear driven mower and not a hydro...any other opinions on that?
these are the prices i was quoted
the ecs would add $100
he also suggested not getting the mulch kit and just using the side discharge...i didn't want to spend more than 2200...but that 48 inch is very tempting.....
That salesman doesn't know what he's talking about...there is NO WAY a belt driven mower is more maneuverable than a hydro...I've yet to meet a salesman who has any experience other than what it takes to sell the equipment...I also think the price is a little high...here in N.Fla., 36" ECS 13 kawasaki is almost $2300..belt driven...as for the 48", if you don't have a walk-behind just yet, go with the 36"...it's an excellent mower size to start out with, when you land bigger accounts and bring in more money, buy a 52"...also, kinda hard to get that 48" through a 38" gate...hope this helps ya...
sorry - you miss understood my post...the salesman said that of course a hyro was much easier to manuever and that the ecs works great on a hydro.....his opinion was that it didn't help that much more with a gear driven mower...which is the model i was looking at....he thought it was easier to move with a pistol than ecs on the gear drien mower....as for the price...i'd love for the price to be around 2300 for the 36inch deck but every dealer i have spoken with all are around 2500 for the pistol and 2600 with the ecs...lowest was 2400 with pistol....
thanks for the feedback
Prices are a bit high. 36" should be around $2200 or lower. 48" for around $2500 or $2600.
I'd spend a little more for a 48 with about 19hp and ecs.If your even thinkin of mulchin,get some extra ponies..
Spent $2300 last year for a 48" metro brand new...If the price is any higher, pass it up....
can i ask you what dealer you got it from...everywhere I have looked it has been way higher than 2300......the prices i was quoted were
36inch 13 HP Kawa 2500 pistol.... 2600 ECS
48inch 15 HP Kawa 2700 p............2800 ECS
let me know where you bought it in CT...as I live here too...maybe it's a Fairfield county thing...or have the prices really gone up that much?
