    Why are mowers so expensive?

    They're very inexpensive when you condsider the alternatives!

    Fact is, you get more mower for your money today than any other time before. (Can't say the same for health insurance.)

    In order to make equipment reliable & productive as it is now takes a lot of engineering, planning, quality of construction and a support system to keep the mowing guys cutting. That's what costs.

    In looking back at what we paid for mowers in the 70's vs. the mowers of today, I think commercial cutters have it real good when in comes to equipment value.

    Heck, just price the engine and drive system and you've already spent at least half as much as a new Lazer sells for.
