    Howdy all,
    Just got the Lesco spring sale mailer. Looks like Lesco is carrying the Great Dane line now. Never seen them there before, or in their ads.

    A 48" Super Surfer w/19hp for $5699, is that a good price?

    That's a good question about the full line. I got the flier today and it only had the Surfers and Super Surfers in there.

    Do the rear tires on the 48" floater stick out beyond the deck still. Did you notice or is this something that the older ones did.

    Can't tell from the pics john, but it doesn't look like it. The ad is for 1 Surfer, and 3 Super Surfers.

    The tires do not stick out past the deck.

    5700 seems about right. Still cheaper then a Stander.

    Lesco had the Great Dane last year in this area. Only problem is their service departments around here.......well, they don't have any. Should stick to selling fertilizer and seed.

    They did on the discharge side. I'm glad they figured that out.

    Yeah... I got the same mailer today.

    Just the Surfer and Super Surfers are in there.
    Pricing looks relatively the same as it does elsewhere.

    19hp 52" cut $4,999

    Super Surfer
    19hp 48" cut $5,699
    23hp 52" cut $6,399
    25hp 61" cut $6,799

    0% APR for 36 months until march 2007

    And I believe there might be some other 'active' discounts available as well.


    The have great deals on the 2006 Ztwo's as well.

    19 hp 48" $5,899
    23 hp 54" $6,199
    25 hp 60" $6,499
    33 hp 72" $7,599

    So there is no way at all I'd buy a Great Dane from them right now.
    Not unless I had some special need or I wanted that Surfer for $4,999.
    No way in hell since I can get a Ztwo for basically the same money.


    They also have $500 off all the Lesco Hydro walkbehinds, and $200 off the gear drives.
