    In the past month I have decided that I am going to need to purchase 2 new mowers. Now I have a budget that I need to meet. My budget is for $10000.00 for two Exmark Turf Tracers 52". Now my experence with the local dealers are that they dont want to sell mowers to a growing LCO they are looking for the kill on newbies that they can charge full price once instead of making money in the future from me.

    I currently run Exmark and Toro equiptment and would like to stay with them if possible.

    If you know of a dealer that is motivated to sell product please PM. I have to get 2 mowers in the next couple of weeks.

    I am in the Nashville TN area but I am willng to drive for the right deal.

    I highly recommend Franklin Kubota in downtown Franklin. They also have a store in Murfreesboro, but I have not been there.

    I bought my eXmark Metro 48 in Franklin in March at what I thought was a fair price. But more than the price, the buying experience was very pleasant and the once I've needed support from them was excellent. The support I needed was due to my mistake, no equipment failures or anything like that, and it was also only to buy parts that I installed myself. They entire event consisted of a phone call a "Yes, we have that part in stock" (surprising) and finding it at the counter with my name on it that afternoon. Couldn't ask for more than that IMO.

    Since I have not needed their service department I cannot objectively comment on that aspect of their business - but I have been given nothing but a positive impression.

    Ask for Ames if you go by - I found him most helpful.
