Well I went of the deep end today. I was awarded a new contract for about 386 acres of parks for the city. They require a 15 ft. mower for the contract so I placed an order for a new Toro 580D with 4 wheel drive and an air conditioned cab. This thing has a price tag of $72,801.00. they claim that the list price is around $85,000.00. Seems high to me but it is the best price that I could get. Has anyone bought one of these lately, and is this a good price? I now have conformation on contracts totaling a little over 540 acres for next year along with my residentals and small commerical properties. I am thinking about getting out of the residental market but have not made up my mind yet. I'll see what happens.
