Are Everride mowers any good.

I bought one a few weeks ago that will be here on monday. I got it shipped from Tennessee. I have never used one before but I hear they are the same as the great danes. I really didn't need the mower but it was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. $3,999.00 plus shipping @$260 for a brand new everride scorpion fixed deck 52 inch with a 23hp kawi. Does anyone have anything to say good or bad about these mowers? For four grand for a stand up mower, I could mow my own yard and it would be worth it. I hope to use it on a regular mowing schedule though.

Thats good to hear. I have heard nothing but good things about them but its nice to hear feedback either way. You dont see the brand in my area very often. In fact I had never heard of it until I saw it on ebay.

Up until this year, Everrides did not have ability to install a mulch kit due to the tunnel deck design. They do have a ZTR that does have the capability of accepting a mulch kit.

We actually bag everything so that wouldn't really be an issue for us. Thanks for the input though. That is definitely a downfall for people that mulch.

It was SLE. They were pretty good for the most part. They always answer the phone when you call but the transaction took far too long. The will say they are gonna call you that afternoon or the next day. Two days later I would call them. They NEVER called me back when they said they were gonna. That being said, you can always get someone on the phone during normal business hours. All in all, I will tell you how it went when I get the mower. Tracking says its in Pennsylvania, says it will be here monday. For that price I didn't really care about the dealer. I won't be using them for warranty or service anyways I just wanted to get the mower. There is a foreign guy(mexican or something) that answers the phone a lot. Didn't have much luck with him. Cody and Chris were pretty Knowledgable and good to deal with but again, never called you back when they said they were gonna. If this mower turns out to be in good working order, its new it should be, I would deal with them again. Just glad I did it in the winter when I didn't have a whole lot going on otherwise it could really drag on. Their number is (615)641-7720.

One example is I talked to them on Tues. they said they were gonna ship it out that afternoon or first thing wed. Cody said, "I will call you back with the tracking number" I called them on Thursday at @2 just cuz I was anxious to see if it would be there by friday and they gave me a tracking number and told me I wouldn't be able to track it until friday. It turns out it didn't leave their shop until thursday at 4:45. No big deal but every dealing that happened with them was like that. I should have just paid cash for the mower but Everride had 0% for 6 months so I took that. Things would have gone quicker. I faxed them the application the said they would call me in an hour to tell me what the result was. I called them two days later to find out. Stuff like that was the norm. Then they said they needed original copies of the finance agreement so they were gonna overnight it the next day. This was also on a thursday. They didnt overnight it until the following wed. I called them on tues to find out what was going on and they did it the next day. Just kind of a PITA that I wouldn't have the patience for during busy season.
