I am looking for a mulching dedicated machine and i hear Exmark is excellent for this. I have found a 2001 machine with only 162 hours. Has the 23 hp. kohler and 52" deck. it appears to be very clean. what is your opinion as to what this machine should be selling for? and is the deck on the '01's the same as on the new ones? I would be getting a full mulch kit for it, no discharge, no bag, is this the best machine for the job??? thanks for any help, i have read alot about their excellent mulching capabilities on here and want one BAD!
