    Are Lesco's really that cheap?? I think I might need to take a ride a go check these things out. For that price I see no reason not to add it to my fleet. It seems almost too good to be true.

    I have searched and everyone seems pleased with theirs. Any complaints??

    When I look at their site, that mower is listed at like $6299. Is the link that you provided showing their Commercial Customer price or something?

    That price is for the 25hp Kawasaki 60" like I have.

    The new WideTrack 28hp Generac 60" is now listed at $5,399.

    Please see my post on the Lesco forum here that is titled "Z Two Confusion."

    At GIE I saw the new 33hp 72" WideTrack Lesco... and I asked if the WideTrack would be an available option on the 60" like it already was on the Cub Commercial. I was told yes, that it was basically just like the 72" frame with a 60" deck, and also a Generac engine.

    But later I was told that was a mistake and that it was not an option. So I went and bought the standard 25/60... only to find out myself a short time later that it was in fact listed as an option on Lesco's website when I was searching all the ZTR stuff (accesories & parts).

    So, I returned to my old post here where I had previously confirmed it was not an option, and of course asked for an explaination. I could have really used the extra couple of hundred left in my pocket to buy some extra stuff at Lesco... and I could have really used the 3 extra HP... BUT MOST OF ALL, I REALLY WANTED THE WIDE TRACK.

    The standard 25/60 is $6,299.

    But if you check the link I put up that splaz reposted...
    You will see that the WideTrack 28/60 is listed for $5,399

    Oh... no complaints at all about the mower or the Lesco location I decided to do business with instead of the one I 'thought' gave me bad info and then recanted it.

    So yeah, take a ride with that item number in hand. The location I do business with makes my local dealers look bad from 80 miles away. Service, support, and parts delivery is great. So is the mower I have. In fact, at this point I wouldn't trade it for any other GAS mower on the market... well except the 28/60 Wide Track version...
