Hey just wanted to let you guys know I just bought a stiping kit from a company in York Pa. They claimed to be the original designers of the EZ-STIPER, The guy there told me EXMARK stold their stiper and is no longer buying them from their York company. Just to let you guys know I bought my stiper (the same one at the exmark dealer) for $250.00 . The dealer wanted $350.00. and I didn't have to buy a new tractor.
