I called around for some pirces today. One dealer i called was selling an echo SRM-261T for 270 bucks. the second dealer i called was selling an exmark 2003 metro hp for 2875. the dealer claims the mower doesnt have any hours on it and says it was just an demo display. Good prices for the echo and exmark? The dealer also quoted me a price for a 2005 metro hp for 3499. so to me if its the same mower i think itll be worth buying the 03 over the 05. any suggestions or comments? what do u think i should do?
