    Just curious as to why? I love them, but I know they are not the most popular seller for Exmark. Still Ebay has loads of them. Any idea why?

    I was wondering the same myself. My guess is that they are switching over to standers.

    Alot of the BIG commercial guys here run them. I see the little mexicans riding the hell out of them with a sulky. I guess they are cheaper initially and they run em ragged...

    I've seen a lot of them with a 20HP engine. Maybe people are getting a bigger engine. I'd like to do a side by side comparison of the turf tracer 60" and the ferris dual drive 61"

    I saw that too, many from the same seller.I guess we are getting into the time of year where the big guys are trading in and getting new stuff, heck its around the corner here.

    Not sure about the units on Ebay right now but a lot of these units were leased by big companies. The leases are usually for 2 years. The leasing companies then sell them to individuals who refurbish and resell them. Some guys have had great luck with these units some have not.

    yup its brickman, they are on the exmark lease program. Brickman does not want to deal with selling the mowers so they have people sell the mowers for them. I bought a 48in Exmark Viking from a guy that does a lot of their selling for them and its a great mower. You just have to watch for what you buy because some of them are beat to heck and back. I will post some pics of the mower i bought.
