    When I bought my Exmark last year, the closest dealer was 35 miles away in Muscatine Iowa. It was a 40 minute drive but I sucked it up and made the trip. Two weeks later, a new dealer opened up in Davenport, Iowa and now my trip was shortened by 20 minutes. I can live with that, I said to myself.

    Just yesterday, I found out that in my very own town, a dealer had started to carry Exmark about 2 weeks ago. I am estatic now. It is only about a 4 minute drive to the dealership.:blob3:

    Henderson, where are you from? I’m from Cedar Rapids.

    Your lucky you don’t have to compete with the lco’s around here. I’m just a kid and I’m feeling a lot of the pressure.

    If your close to Cedar Rapids there is a store called midway outdoor equip. They carry Toro, scag , Grass…., Hustler, cub and some 2 cycle. They are always helping me out with cost ect.

    Having a dealer close by is very nice when you need a last minute part of some service as long as they do good work. I always try and support the local guy as long as they do a good job.
