I get such entertainment from getting you guys worked up from my over the top statements. Take it with a grain of salt. In truth, I feel that all of this commercial equipment is overpriced. Someone is getting rich from us. As I've said before, we're all just slaves to the mowing industry. I don't know how to build a mower, let alone fix one half the time, so I have no choice but to buy this equipment that really isn't worth what I pay for it. Will I make back what I spent on it? Sure. But that doesn't mean I shouldn't be dissappointed when I just shelled out anywhere from 1 to 7 grand on it the year before and stuff is already starting to break down and cost me money. I'm glad Exmark is extending the warranty, but how do I know my dealer will work with the warranty extension if I buy one and it breaks prematurely. I called the service rep at our Exmark and he had no knowledge of any tranny issues. I would probably spend all kinds of time just trying to convince him that they extended the warranty. Anyways thats that. You guys ought to be thanking me that I called on the PR guy to visit this thread. It was immediately after that that he chimed in.
