Well I found out that I actually have a Lesco dealer very close to me (never knew this till this morning) so i went to check their stuff out. The dealer is very nice and helpful and he offers loaner z's for if your stuff is being worked on. Only downfall i saw was he doesnt have a tech there to work on the mowers he does it himself to the best he can but if it needs serious help he sends it to a shop 1 hour away. But since he gives loaners I'm ok with that. I asked about a 48" gear drive fixed deck and I was very suprised with the price, $2249. He was straight up on the price, asked if I was going to beat him up on the price and i said no so he gave me his whole price sheet and said thats the lowest possible he could do. I'm just wondering on the quality, I did a search and the majority is possitive about lesco's its just I also read that mtd makes them and that scares me. Does the price sound good and what are some thoughts on it? I got some free rollers from the golf course my brother works at so i'm going to be fabing up a roller for it since lesco doesnt offer one. Thanks for the help.
