Dealer is quoting me $10-$14,000 for some ZTR's. I laughed hard and long. He called up about a great deal if I buy early; $14k for a gas ZTR. There is a guy selling Worldlawnmowers ZTR's for $5k w/a 27 Kawy. Hydrogear pumps etc. I doubt I'll buy one but what a price difference. If I buy two he can do a lot better. The reality is Commercial mowers especially ZTR's are extremely overpriced. At 8,10,12 and $14000 they are asking for this. Hence why Bobcat Exmark Hustler etc are making lower priced commercial ZTR's. Wether the chinese,americans or japanese it's irrellevent we are going to see competition. With bloated pricing and big profits I would not be surprised to see Ford ,GMC and Dodge making ZTR's. Why not the ZTR's are priced more than some of their cars with no airbags, computers etc we might just see it.
