    I just got quoted over $8000 for a Bunton 48" hydro walkbehind, Brand new. It had a 17 HP kawasaki. The dealer I saw it at said they got it from another dealer who couldn't even sell the machine. Could Bunton be so crazy as to charge over $8000 for a WALKBEHIND??????

    Dude thats more than a lot of guys Z's that are on here.

    I get crappy prices on equipment compared to you guys up north and even 8 grand sounds nutty.

    I say in a year come back cuz that mower will still be there and it more than likely will be half the price.

    Unless the dealer is totally outta price line.

    That dealer's totally nuts, must have taken you for a sucker. Probably figured some one would buy it if the price was high enough. A mower like that is about $4800 or less.

    WHAT??? That's crazy...

    You can buy a top-of-the-line 48" ZTR, like Exmark for example, for less than $8,000.
