    My experience is that Dingos don't make good lawn mowers. They tend to scuff up the grass just a tad. ; 0

    This is the lawn mowing section of the forum.

    "Dingos", fit perfectly in "Commercial Landscaping" Forum... IMHO... :)

    go to the mowing section and play with other kids. Last time I checked a dingo was used to landscape!

    So what did you decide on the dingo? Seems a little much for the economy. what shape is it in? Is the auger drive included?

    didnt decide but the owner is now trying to raise the price claiming he spoke with a dingo dealer who told him it was too cheap i still haven't decided what to do, all the attachments are included in the price

    Thats high. Watch for good deals. You should be able to get one in the 4k range without the attachments. And sometimes attachments come across there too. I wouldn't pay over $6,000 for that machine with all the attachments.
