    I just got home and mowed my yard with my brand spanking new Exmark turftracer hp. I got the floating deck 17 hp kaw 48".
    All I can say is WOW!!!!! I have always used belt drives, never even had ahold of a hydro. This rocks. No more getting stuck in a corner or down a hill. I love it I can finish so much faster and the cut is nicely finished. I should have done this 2 years ago. Thanks Exmark. If anyone lives near Knoxville I highly recommend Powell Power and Equipment. I have never been treated so well. Hey Toro dealer I wont be back .

    Got any pictures of the new mower. If you don't mind saying, what did you pay for it? Welcome to Lawn Site.

    I got the same mower and live in Knoxville, Powell Power treated me like **** the one and only time I will ever go... Go to Commercial Cutting Equip. in Maryville, sooooo much better to me, they are great and don't charge an arm and a leg like Powell Power..... I agree GREAT MOWER though....

    what did they do? I mean these guys were bending over backwards for me. they were super nice answered all my questions. They let me mow on their lot. I cant believe it was night and day with your experience and mine. Let me know, I am really interested with this

    well there is some dumbass guy that runs the front desk, and a WOMAN who tries to order the parts and she ain't got a clue whats going on... and there high in my opinion. Weren't willing to help me with gettitng my old mower fixed at all, just wanted to charge me out the ass for them to "look it over" and then when I got there ain't a thing was done to it, after they called me and told me it was ready....I hope u got better luck with them.

    COULDNT AGREE MORE...i havent ever been treated very badly at Powell Power but i think there prices are a bit high...commercial cutting equipment is GREAT...i havent bought anything from them but they treat everyone i know that has been there very good.

    ha glad someone else don't like the way they run things around there, their prices are high and they also think that just since I'm 19 I don't know **** about my mower or anything and weren't willing to help, I went to Comm. Cut, and ain't ever looked back...
