    I'm assuming that the new exmark line comes out sometime in january? i dunno cause im new to the lawn biz.. I heard they were all going to have ECS and I was wondering if the prices were going to stay the same or go up?

    I believe thier stuff is usually released in February. One of the Exmark guys just said on a thread within the last few days, that there aren't really any significant changes in any of the equip. except some feature options like the ECS controls being available on all walkbehinds now, the fuel fill openings are a little larger, and the foot assisted deck lift being standard equip. now. Other than that, he said it was just a little behind the scenes tweaking that doesn't really show.
    Oh yeah, and they were preparing to release "IT" in their '02 product lineup.

    Runner i talked to two exmark dealers Tuesday and they are going up next yr. I priced the Lazer Z 60 with 26hp-efi 2001price-8999 2002-9499.00, I think they said first increase in 6yrs. Marks Mowing Service ps don't know if thats local or everywhere.
  6. Prices will go up as usual

    Changes made:

    All hydros WB's will have parking brake, Nelson filter, larger fuel filler opening. as standard equipment

    ECS has been out since spring. Possably pistal grips will no longer be made in 2 years.

    Lazer has had deck lift assist since spring, also will have some fine tunning adj. on the deck supports. Hydros will have 1000psi pop off valves. And I think but not sure Nelson air filter as standard equipment.

    Not going to offer 23hp Kaw or Kohler any more on Lazer 60"

    Ultra cut deck is standard now 5.5" deep

    Balde bolts on all spindles are longer and fine thread.

    Mower can be started while not sitting in seat (more for machanic feature)

    They have a 27hpLC Diesel now.

    32" Viking Hydro released in spring.

    that's all I can remember off the top of my head.

    Totally redone Turf Tracer:

    New deck frame
    New front castors and bearings
    New ECS (Not avail on '01 TT)
    New Donaldson (1st on a WB)
    Bigger drive tires
    Faster ground speed
    Deeper deck
    etc., etc.

    Ya know, just the basics of eXmark keeping years ahead of the competition.
  8. Exmark doesn't use a donaldson it's a Nelson

    as with different locations dealers get things earlier than others.

    ECS is an option for 2002 on all WB's

    2003 pistol grips will no longer be in production. INFO via Exmark rep

    Didn't get that other info on the WB stuff that you mensioned.

    Didn't know it was a Nelson, thanx. (I tested the '02 this summer, lots of changes)

    From what I understand, the TT will be avail only w/ ECS.
  10. Where abouts in the midwest might you be?

    Maby your dealer will not sell both as options:confused:
