    I am going tomorrow to look at a Exmark metro 36 w/ pistol grips. I talked to dealer on the phone and he said I could take home for $2000 in the crate plus tax of 4.5% ($90). I was wondering if yall think I could get the mower mower for $2000 with tax thrown in. BTW how good is this price?

    That is how I bought one in 2000. Its probably an older model left over. I would say get it while you can. Those mowers are awesome and the price you will not see again. Mine is starting its 5th full time season with only regular maintenance costs. Still have the original belts.

    I just bought one about 2 weeks age with ECS and put together and readied for service for $2100. Keep pushing man, make them assemble so you can go right to work and not have to put off mowing time for assembly time.

    that price is reasonable. it should definitely be assembled. write back and let us know how you like it after you clock a few hours.

    Take that advice. Or pay the assembly fee.

    For around here, that price is a steal!! I paid $2400 (including tax) for mine and it has the pistol grips too!

    I have to same mower you just bought and have the mulch kit. This year I am not planning on using the mulch kit because, when the grass is really tall or wet it clumps alot. So this year I am going to try some different blades and just discharge. Also I have the 2 wheel velkie. I love this mower. Very nice machine.
