In July of 2004 I purchased a new Exmark Turf tracer 60" 23hp kawasaki with striping roller for $6850 including sales tax. I just called my dealer along with three others and the prices have really went up in the last 2years. I was expecting maybe a $150-250 increase, but what I found was far worse. The prices I got quoted were $7550, $7650, $7800 and $8200. My regular Exmark dealer was the cheapest with $7550. All the prices I listed includes sales tax. In two years the price jumped $700. With increases like this it sure makes keeping cost in line much more difficult. I hope this is one trend that doesn't continue. Anyone else finding this to be a problem?
