On a whim I stopped by the local Grasshopper dealer today. (On the way home from buying parts for my Great Dane...AGAIN!) The dealer seems to be really customer oriented. The local Hustler dealer-who also sells Great Dane, hasn't been the greatest to deal with. They are friendly, but the place is always a three ring circus. I've asked to demo a Super Z and he said I could "Try it out on the lot" and that they all cut about the same (ztrs). The Grasshopper dealer offered me a demo, and I never even asked for one. I haven't heard a lot of good about the Exmark dealer in my city either, and I've heard they don't do demos anymore. Grasshopper is offering 0% interest for three years, but I don't hear too much good about them here on Lawnsite...any comments about the 220?...Is the Exmark that much better?
I might add that I've bought a lot of eqipment from the Hustler dealer, and he's often commented about how nice I keep my equipment, so I don't think he's worried about me trashing a demo.
