Last year I purchased a Exmark Metro 36". I have had minor complaints with the mower itself. Maintenance of your equipment is essential. I have just replaced the engine last October because my foreman did not properly maintain the oil level and the engine seized up. Today, unexpectedly, the mower is in the shop, and I would assume my foreman did not change the oil. Remember the mowers we operate cannot talk to us to let us know what is wrong or how they feel. We must set a schedule for maintaining our profitable machines or the machines will not be profitable. I was just asked this morning for a credit application for the purchase of another mower. Well, I guess my foreman might have a little setback.
