    ranger520 great choice on the metro I just got my new 36 metro on monday and love it. If you don't mind me asking what did you pay for yours ? I got a 36 Metro ECS 12.5 Kaw with mulch kit instaled for 2499 + 110 for the mulch kit. This sounds high when I read that people are getting them for around 2000 in other parts but thats the going price around here how about in Minnesota?

    I got the Metro about 3 or 4 weeks ago. I love it. Got the 15 hp Kohler, mulch, and sulky. After tax it was $3000. The mower itself I think was between 2200 - 2400. The ECS handles are great. Have fun, be safe.

    I paided 2299 for a non ecs with no mulch kit or sulkey. The 2000 units were promo units and have kohlers on them. I looked at both the ecs and the pisol and decided that I personally like the feel of the pistol and the dealer said that this is about a 50/50 deal with people buying. But to answer you question, for all the shopping I did it sounds like youpeice was right in there especialy of the dealer is going to be around if you need him.
