First Post! I've been visiting/researching on Lawnsite for some time now but never posted. I'm pretty sure this is a no brainer, but thought others might want to know the money that can be saved by buying at the right time. Ok, I'm just bragging but none of my none LCO friends care at all. In fact they think I'm crazy for spending $7699 for a mower. LOL. New 09 Ferris IS2000 61" Deck (Older style) 30hp Vanguard Michigan Suspension Seat Extra set of Blades Only $7699 + $50 for delivery. Cheaper to have it delivered because of City Taxes (saved $130). Made for a long weekend though. I bought it on Friday and had to wait for them to deliver on Monday. It rides like a dream even in very rough terrain.
