Just got back from the Maryland Turf show and need some insight on a new mower. I will be starting part time in the spring and have a couple of mowers I am looking at, Exmark, Toro, Gravley and Lesco. At the show the Toro guy wouldn't give me the time of day (big turn off). The Exmark guy(excellent mowers I understand) gave me a price of "the mid twos I guess". The Lesco guy seemed to be interested in what I was looking for and gave me a price of $2149.00 for a 48 inch belt drive. All of the mowers I was looking at were 36 to 48 inch belt drive mowers. The Gravley dealer is about 5 miles away, the Toro and Exmark dealer are about a 45 minute drive. I stopped by the Lesco dealer on the way home and was impressed with the parts inventory they had as well as fertilizer and other stuff. The lesco dealer is about 15 minutes away. My big question is, is Lesco a good mower. Thanks for the help.
