Lots of price reductions going on at the local dealers who are trying to reduce thier inventory or get rid of this years demos.Was not even looking and fell into a deal at the Lesco dealer. How about a 52in electric start belt for $669. Mower has 8.5 hrs on it and needed a battery and the carb cleaned. Hate to have something sit thru the winter but can't beat some of the prices right now. Heck even the local Stihl dealer is getting with it with 10 percent off.
