Well, after humping around a 21 inch mower last year, you guys have convinced me to take a big step up. I just looked at a 48" Turf Tracer HP hydro with the ECS, electric start and 17 HP Kaw. Seems like a real nice machine. The dealer quoted $4,900 ($300 off list). I would be loading it onto my truck bed with alloy ramps ($200) to start. I'm a little worried about dropping it off the truck (a 3/4 ton Chevy). Do any of you haul your mowers in the truck bed? If so, any problems? Should I just break down and buy a small trailer and a 52 inch mower? Also, does this price seem high? Thanks in advance.
