I did a search but most of the threads were about 6 mths to a yr old. I am currently looking at the new Lesco w/b. It is a 48" hydro 17 Kawi electric start. It seems to be a nice improvement over previous models. The price new in the crate is about $3400.00 plus tax. I value opinions here so I need to know: Is it worth it or should I avoid Lesco mowers completely? I currently run Exmark but am growing tired of my dealers attitude when it comes to service. I appreciate any and all help I can get on this!
