Nice addition to the family Gold..... I work at a Bobcat (loaders not mowers) dealership every now and again whenever they need me. (mostly to keep my employee discount. lol) Anyway, they are also an Exmark dealer and I got the chance to cruise your exact model around the lot last week and man did it feel nice. The way the controls responded felt a little different and definitely better than some of the older units I have tried... I am a huge fan of your stripe photos and I can't wait to see what you got in store for this season!
