    Priced a 2019 Perma Green at Site One Supply the other day. They told me $10,600. A JDF account which usually gets you a discount does not apply this year. Could have bought a 2018 at Site One Supply last year for $9,600. They usually go up about $100 per year but a $1,000 price increase in one year? Are the other brand going up like this or is the help at Site One Supply on something?

    I got a price from site one of $7600. for a permagreen, that was may of 2016. I actually paid a thousand more for the ground logic as I feel its a superior machine. Not sure what the new pricing on gl is since briggs purchased the company last year.

    My dealer is selling one for around 8500, but he is just trying to get it off the floor.

    Omfg a Permagreen over 10k lmfao. I wouldn’t pay 5k for a new one. I had one and it well was horrible. Went to T was marginally better. Then I bought a toro standon for 8900 and it blew either of those machines out of the water. Get a steel green or toro. You will thank yourself.

    My pathfinder has been rock solid. I replace belts and control cables proactively & change the oil (mobil 1) every 25 hours, air filter every 100 hours.

    Agree with the proactive replacement. Do you run the spray bar?

    Coverage is great. I modified the height to get more width

    bought a triumph last summer for $9400. Worth every penny. We still have our original magnum but the triumph is a real pleasure to use.
