    Went to pick up a couple supplies for my Ferris to 'winterize' it soon and the dealer knows I have been looking for a nice 36" to add to next year's fleet. Some guy bought one, but 5 hrs on it, and swapped it for a 48. Ultrabelt 2004 Ferris 5-speed, with Accelarator bagger on it, new for $3,100., going to sell it to me for $2,400. Not too shabby I think for an end of the year purchase...any thoughts?

    Maybe nothing. Guy had a mower for 5 hours and traded it in. Why, he wanted a bigger one. Maybe so. Maybe not. Just thought some of your own advice might be helpful. I'd hate to see you take it in the a$$.

    he wanted a bigger machine, the thing is brand new Mark. Brand new. take some of my advice right now...stop picking fights on here. The good members of this board shouldn't be subject to such stupid games. It really bothers me that someone like you who I think does awesome work and has a lot to offer, pulls this. Come on, people should be looking up to you, not laughing at you

    Just trying to provide some friendly advice. Not sure why you're picking on me. :cry:

    BTW, if you tried to trade in one of your mowers with 5 hrs on it, it would be considered "used", not "Brand new".

    Besides, I don't mind if people laugh at me, cuz I can laugh at myself...
    :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    see?
