One of the ZTR's that I've been researching is an Exmark from a local dealer (Quest E-Series Zero Turn Rider QTE691KA501) and it has been listed since last November for $3,199 up until this weekend. I went on the website today and it is now listed for $3,699. Is this common for the prices to skyrocket this much at the beginning of the season. What really upsets me is that the salesman that I spoke to 2 weeks ago told me that there should be a sale coming up at the end of March. What a croc of bull!!!! Can anyone tell me if this is typical or if there are any dealers on here that know about maybe an Exmark discount coming up. If I can't get the Exmark for $3,199 then I'm definitely getting the Hustler Raptor that I've been comparing to the Exmark.
