    Looking for a commercial zero turn ride on mower. 48" or over.
    Exmark is obviously incredibly reliable and their financing seems to be outstanding.
    Any suggestions using price and reliability of the mower in regards to the company to research and possibly finance the mower from?
    I'm looking anywhere in the 4-6k range but would love to stay towards the lower end.
    Also any suggestions on the type of mower from the suggested company ie Exmark Laser etc

    Thanks guys!

    Right through John Deere. They have zero percent deals on bigger items almost regularly.

    Of course you need to buy JD stuff and I am all for that.

    Thats actually what I did with my first mower. 32" JD WG32A walk behind. 44 month 0% intrest. Killer deals, but yes parts are a *****, they always have them but the price sometimes is a bit high. The JD zero turns start at around 7k, alot more than what I'm looking to finance and to be honest, I wasn't that impressed with my mower for its cost (3 grand)

    It's gonna be tough finding a good commercial rider for 4-6k. The lowest priced mowers that I know of though are the Bad Boys.
    Hit up Retrodog on here for pricing. He is a dealer for them.

    Nothing runs like a Deere. They financed our first mower as well and she's still running strong. Not to mention our local dealer carries stihl products so we can finance new equipment whenever needed.

    I believe most manufacturers actually finance through companies like Sheffield, so just find a mower you like in your price range and the financing should be easy.

    We go through Deere and Sheffield, they both have great rates and are awesome to do business with.

    Why not just save $4k and buy it in cash. If you cannot pay cash then you cannot afford it.

    I have NEVER financed a truck/ piece of equipment and all of our gear is next to new and reliable.
