    This seems to be a popular post.

    I am looking into the landscaper supply mowers. I sifted threw the past threads, but there is too many opinions and not enough hard facts.

    I put another post up for the good things to keep things separated and more productive.

    I ask that if you have a bad thing to say about them keep it based on facts. eg. "I had to replace my hydro pump 2 times in 3 years." not "my toro is better"

    Thanks guys I think if we keep on the subject this will be a very helpfull thread for many people.

    I was told that landscaper supply was going out of buisness. Now where are you going to find parts?

    Stick with a more popular name brand(Scag, Walker, Toro, Exmark etc) for ease of finding parts & less headaches. If they reallly were that great i'd think there'd be alot of talk about them on this site.

    I personally would not buy one, but from what I have heard, they do make a good walkbehind both in belt and hydro, but I would stay away from the ride-on ZTM ... it is junk.
    As to them going out of business ... I know they play the game of robbing peter to pay paul with their suppliers ... so that may very well happen in the future .... enough said.

    I just checked out Landscapers Supplys prices. There machines are not much cheaper than anything else.

    36" Landscaper $1999

    36" Metro $2199(others have posted they got their Metros for $1999)

    I personally have nothing bad to say about Landscaper Supply. But when you buy a mower from an online company there is no dealer. Where are you going to turn when you have a major problem? Shop at some of your local dealers before making your choice.

    I agree the walk behind prices aren't that far off from the others. But the ztr prices are quite low.

    Look on ebay. Just saw a 36" WB for around $1300 if I remember correctly. This is for new, not used. I think the name on it was "Bradley". Same mower as Landscaper Supply as far as I know though.

    Here it is. I was wrong though, it's a 32".
