I was >.< that close to buying Exmark AS2860, with Ultra Vac. Then I went to the Home Show... Got to the show, found out we have a Gravely dealer in town, and he says he can beat the Exmark price hugely with his 260 model. I am going in there on monday to take a look at it. Then I talked to the Kubota dealer, and was suprised to find out they are not as expensive as I thought. And they have 0% financing for 42 months. The ZD326 looks like a great mower, and they have a demo with 32 hours on it- at a good price, especially at 0%... Also talked to the Deere dealer. Asked if the price($7000) they quoted me on a 737 last fall was still good, they said "sure as long as we can still get one" and said something about it being discontinued. That was news to me, not sure if he was mistaken or if it was true. What sucks is I am figuring lots of bid right now that require bagging all summer, so the Walker is tempting also... but our Walker dealer is an LCO also, not sure if I want to compete with my dealer for lawns. So now here I am again, trying to decide what is gonna be the best mower for me.
