I want to demo a 60 inch lazer either the 27hp or EFI. I went to two dealers and both of the wanted me to pay their rental fee for a days use. Is this normal or should I look else where. Reynolds, and Landscape Construction Services. I live in Anderson IN. I really like my Dixie Choppers but I want a better cut quality, and hill climbing ability. Also it has been a wile since I ran an exmark, but do they still have the dampers on the controls, and can they be removed. I really did not like how stiff the controls where on the last unit I ran. I feel this why I did not buy one in the past.
