    Just wondering, Exmark is being very quiet. I assume they are staying up late and working over time to make improvements on the Triton deck or maybe coming out with a new deck. Now if you work at the Exmark booth at Lousville during the show what are you going to tell the folks about next year. I think they need some good news to motivate any customers with concerns. They are bound to be working on something. I am hoping they will get any issues worked out with the Triton. I think that's why they are so quiet, they are waiting to make sure they don't have problems again. The deck seems to be doing well in the deep South if I'm not mistaken. We will see.

    They need to address the TRITON problems first of all.

    Second....they need to re-design the Lazer line.

    Offer something different from TORO.

    Higher HP diesel.

    Faster speeds.

    Who knows if they're up to anything.

    There are a LOT of people who know about their f-up with the Triton decks. How much validity there is, well I can't say firsthand because I have never mowed with Triton. But I doubt that all the horror stories are much ado about nothing...

    I love my Turf Tracer and I'd buy another, and anything with an Ultracut or Trivantage deck. But Triton, no way in hell.

    I've got to demo a Triton deck. Guys in my area say they cut great. My dealer has had no complaints:confused: . I'd like to see for myself.
