Ok Heres the deal. Last week I went to my dealer to order a Super Mini Z (25/52), after demoing a Mini Z (23/52). I decided on the Super Mini over the demo mower because the little price difference and the Susp Seat, more HP and bigger pumps. Plus the fact that it's brand new and don't have to worry about the demo hours. The demo looked bad with only 40 hrs on it. Here's my issue.... When I ordered the Super the dealer(one of the salesmen) said it would be a 04. The owner called back, after about 4 days and said it would be a 03 and they have no specials on the 04. (03 specials are 20% off msrp.) The differences on the 04 vs 03 are ( as far as I know) larger rear tires and a redesigned frame to suit the larger rears. Here's a quote from Hustler Rep about the larger tires. I prefer the 04 due to the fact it is a year newer (in case of resale or do people just look at hours?) larger rear tires(smoother ride , I do small residential 15,000 sf +/-). I know/hope Hustler will probably run the same deal in the spring so here is my dilemma. Buy a 03 now or wait on the 04. Don't know if there going to be any price increase on the 04's. I just want the most bang for the buck like all consumers.I know this sounds petty but hey I was told it was an 04. I plan on seeing my dealer when it arrives and see if I can get a better price on the 03. So what do you guys think? Is it worth waiting on an 04 or what.. Thanks!
