There is not 1 single dealer around here that will let you take a mower home to demo it. I just got off the phone with the dealer I am about to buy a new Tank M48 from in the next 2 days and he said they had a demo unit I could try. I said when can I pick it up. He said "on no you can drive it around here but cant turn the blades on because that will get it dirty". Also none of our dealers will give you a loaner if your mower goes down and into the shop. I swear the dealers here SUCK!
