    I think the 26" will go into production in April. If you want the exact production schedule I'll get it for you.

    In talking to my local Exmark dealer, they anticipated receiving the first batch by mid to late April, here in Canada. I would imagine that the U.S. market would receive their first shipment earlier.

    The machine is a very interesting concept and something that the industry has needed for a while. Like many, I remain concerned about the unit only having a 6 hp motor but will wait and see. Be patient, they'll arrive soon.

    I work for Horizon in Colorado and the 26" metro will go into production in first to mid of April and we will be getting our first units in first to mid May. We are at this time taking orders for the units in our area and they are priced in the $1300 range.
