    I think that is the biggest mistake guys make that do this. We all want new stuff but its money out of your pocket.

    I almost bought a new mower this year but decided to make do with the one I have. The new one was a great deal and mine is only a year old.

    When it came down to it I would rather work a little harder with a smaller mower than be out 5k

    Shake it off and keep your money

    Man I am dying for a new mower. My mower works great no problems and nice stripes. It is a belt drive 48 the belt drive is the problem sometimes I have to mow in the rain but no way with the belt drive.
    I have to wait till next year :mad:
    I need at least a hydro walk behind but have been looking at Z's and started thinking about a stander.
    What mower has you drooling for a new one?

    I am in the same boat. My biggest WB was giving me some problems, and the dealer was having trouble figuring out what was wrong. I was almost about to buy a new hydro, and then my dealer fixed my machine. Its now running great. Only problem was I was really looking forward to the new mower. So I kind of have the itch now too. I also am holding off untill fall, unless I have more problems.

    i've been craving a ferris IS3000 lately and since they have the 0% financing for 3 years, that only makes me want to jump on it more

    Take your mower that you are wanting to get rid of....,clean it up real good.....,stand back and take a good look at it........, and it will beg you to stay, and you should if its trouble free. My .02

    I've got a old machine 97 xmark 52" TT . I would like to have a new one to but my way of thinking it "If it isn't broke don't replace it "
