• LawnSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again LawnSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of LawnSite will experience a major upgrade later this week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue..

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit LawnSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow LawnSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, LawnSite Team

I have checked out their website and it is very basic. I doubt you'll find what you want.<p><p>----------<br>Blake<br>Ferta-Lawn

Lesco is based out of Ohio, so I would think there would be some in NY. They are all the way down to Miami. Call the 800 number and they can tell you where a dealer is. I can't believe they don't have a dealer locator on their site.<p>----------<br>Eric@ELM<br>http://pages.prodigy.net/eric.erickson/index.html

Yeah, I didn't see any dealer locator, either. (Probably site designed by same guy who designs their mowers: pretty, just don't work well)<p>Okay, that was uncalled for, but here's their number: 1-800-321-5325.

Lazer, have you ever used Lesco Mowers. Why do you say that they don't work well. My 36's are three years old and my 48&quot;s are 2 years old. I have not had any problems with them. They are certainly more dependable then something bob-cat or exmark would make..<br>Maybe you have had a bad experience, but everyone else i have talk to swears by Lesco.

jml--I can dito your comments on lesco machines by my experience with mine. dollar for dollar, since I've been in the buisness, I've done exceptionally well with my lesco. I'm not going to tie my future purchases to only lesco because there is a great market out there for the lawn cutters money. I'm gonna gonna look at all of 'em including lesco for my next purchase.<p>GEO

steve <p>just call 1-800-321-5325 and tell them you want to buy something. Lesco has several ways of getting to you. They have stores in all the bigger cities in NY. (rochester, buffalo, syracuse, albany, west nyack, poughkeepsie etc). they have stores on wheels that primarly call on golf courses but they will stop by your house if you arrange an appointment. They also have individuals roaming the countryside called msr's or T&O specialists. they also have individuals that call on Home Depot accounts and retail shops. just call and something will happen. Their web site is basic but the future enhancements will probably be like any other big company and you will be doing all your business through web sites. see phil nillsons site for what the future will bring

JML-<p>I love Lesco, I spend tens of thousands with them every year on Fertilizer.<p>As far as their mowers go, they're simply copycats. They have never made an innovative machine. The used to &quot;sub-out&quot; the building of much of their equipment and now they have a deal with MTD. MTD! <p>I guess I just have more respect for the companies that are the innovators: Scag, Toro, eXmark, Bobcat, Dixie Chopper, etc.<br>Lesco equipment has never come out with something new, never been responsive to the needs of the commercial cutter.
