I stopped by my local dealer today to see if there were any sales going on. To my surprise there were quite a few 2003 exmark models still on the floor. The great thing about this was the fact that everything was on sale! To make it short and sweet I settled on a Metro 36" 12.5hp. Did I mention that it was marked down over $600? This should be perfect for my gated accounts. I have enjoyed my exmark experience so far and I look foward to purchasing a larger mower at the year's end!
