    I wouldn't buy anything from Brinkman Lease return. I know people that work for them and those guys wouldn't recommend buying Brinkman returns either. So that should tell you something.

    i dont know if thats true. i bought two of brickmans exmark walkbehinds and i had no issues.i think they have to keep up on the maintance, just like leasing a car. i would ask the dealer if they have the maintance records. when i got mine i recieved the maintance records from the dealer. if they dont have them get the model number and call exmark they might be able to help you.

    If I could, id rather buy a mower from a smaller operation or a homeowner, but if the records are there, all mowers get there fair share of hard use, so if the price is right, take it.

    You've found their secret! That's obviously why they're such a big, successful company....because they "kick the piss out of their mowers!" Guess I'm gonna have to do this too......maybe it'll drum up business. Maybe I should put my steel-toed boots on first........
