    I have posted a question about this mower before (Scamper HG-Pistol Grip 15hp, duel hydro and the price is $2900). Compare Scag or Exmark, It makes me I want to buy the Scamper. But yesterday, i talked to a sale guy at diff dealer, he told me that Geat dane will not be making this model anymore. I was worry about getting parts in the future. What do you all think? would you by it?

    Nope. parts availability is a HUGE concern for me, mainly because it will break, and parts will be needed eventually.

    I would think that the parts from other great dane equipment would be interchangeable, but this isn't exactly a low low price that would make me chance it.

    You should contact Great Dane or the dealer that told you that and ask the very same question to them.

    Why don't you check with the parts guy at the dealer and take a sample model from 5,10,15 years ago and see if any parts are available for it.
