    • Exmark introduced the 24-inch Stand-On Aerator. The enhanced design of this new compact stand-on aerator was based off the company’s successful 30-inch Stand-On machine.
    • Exmark will offer a new Smart Controller on select 2018 LazerZ S-Series commercial zero-turn riding mower models. The Smart Controller is designed to provide a more robust operator interface and reduce downtime. This includes interlock status, PTO and total hours, fuel level, maintenance reminders and machine health status
    • Exmark has updated its Quest residential zero-turn riding mowers for 2018, with improved engine protection, an updated control panel and a fresh, new look.
    • Exmark introduced a spreader attachment for its Stand-On Aerator. The spreader attachment enables landscape professionals to offer over-seeding in conjunction with aeration programs.
    • Exmark launched a new suspended platform-equipped version of its Radius S-Series zero-turn riding mower. The new machine is designed to deliver a smoother ride and minimize operator fatigue, while maintaining the productivity, durability and cut quality.

    In January the new diesel's will be available and I will try to demo a 72" rear discharge model and compare it to a 60" side discharge model.

    Actually, it is Toro price increases being forced on Exmark. When they were an independent company their prices were very competitive.

    Well ..Toro owns them but I believe they are still a separate company .... example ... Same exact suspension seat ... one says Toro, one says Exmark ... Toro $499, Exmark $699 ..I bought the Toro...
    Exmark makes a decent product but don't see the need for "Bentley" pricing on their products.

    You are correct in what you say. Toro corporate has decided on a multi tier pricing strategy. So long as Exmark is #1 in sales they will keep bumping the prices to increase profits and dividends for their shareholders. Briggs, for instance is doing something similar with Ferris and Snapper Pro.
