    hey everyone. there is a local hardware store beside my mower dealer. i stopped in yesterday and they 3 ztrs. they have a toro 48inch 19 hp kawi for 5900 and a 44inch 17hp kawi for 5100. the first one is the turbo force deck. the other one is the srs deck. they also have a husky 21hp 48inch cut for 5500. these are all brand new units just leftovers they are trying to get rid of. are these good prices? i wanna run a bagger so is 17 hp on the 44 enough?

    yes these are all commercial units. he said he would give me the bagging system for the husky for 800 its a hard plastic double bin unit. so thats 6300. the baggers on the toro are gonna be 1500 cuz he has to order them. ya i was thinking bringing 5500 cash and seeing if he would take it for the turbo force toro... what u guys think?

    I think it will make a good sized deposit for him to hold it for you until you can come up with the other $400 +tax.

    If he just recently got it in, it's likely not due on floor plan for a while yet, so why should he give up 80% of his profit on the machine so you can take it?
