  1. There is no such thing as an Exmark in yellow, therefore it is not like an Exmark, sorry to disappoint you.

    Buying on price is like buying a $2 fishing rod to enter a bass pro tourny.

    I don't get it. Please explain.

    That's because he has nuts. LOL

    Baaaa doooom doooom.......... tshhhhhhhhh
  5. You say so....

    Why is it safer, more comfy, and ergo over the lap style?

    If you don't lift your stuff high enough you find them center controls.

    But I guess you would know that if you ever used one and put some hours on it.

    The controls on a Great Dane may be similar to a Walker but they don't handle the same at all.

    I test drove a chariot last week and liked the handling and size of the unit. I believe the center controls would make it easier to bail in case of a flip or "pond incident" (don't really want to remember that one), and they seemed to be easier on the arms---although I only ran it for 15 minutes or so.

    In light of recent changes in the deck design I am considering the Chariot Jr as an option for a second, smaller crew next year---one man, residential only.

    With the warm weather here in Ohio I was finally able to ride the new Chariot and all I can say is...


    Try one if you get a chance. The new models are smooth and they have the over the lap controls if you prefer.

    The Chariot that I am going to buy is a 61" 25 HP for $7,399!!

    With the super financing that is in place, I will pay $77 a month for the first year...what a deal!!

    Picked up my new Chariot today!

    Really looking forward to using it. I decided to go with the optional "over the lap" controls to give them a try.

    What a great buy....61" 25HP Kohler with HD air filter..$7,399!!

    I spent some time on my new Chariot over the weekend and man is it ever smooth!! It's the easiest to operate, smoothest running Z I have ever been on.

    Do yourself a favor...demo a Great Dane Chariot before you buy anything will be very surprised!!
