    Do not get this mower!!!! I bought one in the beginning of the season many problems. I don't know what Exmark was doing when they said where fixing the bugs. First ten lawns I mowed the drive belt that runs the blades breaks. It seemed about every ten lawns the belt would break. Also it left a strip of cut grass on the left side of the machine many complaints from customers.

    TheLawnBarber,

    I would like to have you get in contact with me. I got involved in the Metro 26 from the service side.

    The first year of this machine was very painful to say the least. We did however make rework kits on those first year machine.

    All the updates went on 06 products. I have had a hand full of units that was breaking belt like yours. We have seen some bad idler arm alignment causing issues along with the belt.

    Please give me your dealer and serial number of your machine.

    I have heard lots of bad about the metro 26, but come on fellows, give this guy Fred here a call and see what he has to say. He has posted his direct phone number and email. I will give a company a chance to see what they will do. Sometimes the "right" person makes a difference!

    We didn't recieve any 05 models. They stopped shipping before we would have recieved them.

    We have sold about 12 of them this season. Only 1 had a problem and it turns out it was one that was not updated and it slipped through the cracks somehow. We picked the unit up and installed the updates which was covered by warranty obviously. Haven't had any problems otherwise.

    It's bad when a new product hits the streets and has as many problems as it did, but you can't label it as a bad product for ever. If some of you only knew of some of the products out there and the trouble they had......only you were lucky enough to get one without a problem.......haha.

    The 26's are ok. Trust me. If they were, i wouldn't sell them because I have enough headaches.......hahahaha.
