    I've got my 260Z up for sale because it's too large for the properties I currently have and I'm looking to buy a 52" Turf Tracer. I called up my 2 closest dealers and they want MSRP ($7098) and above for the TT. I couldn't believe they charged so much. I have no relationship with either dealer since I'm switching brands, so do you think that has something to do with them quoting me such high prices? I'm not very experienced with buying equipment, so where should I go from here with these dealers and trying to get a price that is more reasonable? Thanks.

    I forgot that I was quoted $6743 for the 52" TT if I buy before their spring commercial open house. So that's I guess more in line with what I thought it would be. Hopefully I can get them to throw in a Proslide and mulch kits for free, then we'll have a deal.

    I am about to get a 36 TTHP and was quoted $4800 at one dealer and $4999 at another.

    I am gonna sell my 48 Lazer HP with 355 hours on it and hopefully will get the beef of it that way. Dont use the 48 much since I bought a 60" lazer last year.
