    I've been looking around for a ZTR and figured I'd let everyone know the prices I received in the Northern VA/Western Va area.

    all 2004 models with 60" deck and 27hp air cooled Kohler.
    (trying to keep apples to apples)

    Bobcat..............$7750 to $8295 with the 8295 being a 25hp Kohler, yep you read that correctly.

    Hustler Z..........$7190 this is with rebate my dealer says is coming soon to $8400.

    Lesco...............$6275 to $6375 everyone about the same.

    Exmark............$7395 to $8340 same dealer that gave me the 8340 quoted 7195 for a 23 Kohler, $1150 for 4 hp?????

    Toro 500 series....$7750 to $9200

    everyone seems to be within a few hundred of each other, I guess it's just which machine you prefer.

    good luck and as always keep up the great info.

    if you're looking at a 27hp, check into a fuel injected 28hp.

    Do the math, the fuel savings adds up.

    I got an 04 Lazer Zefi, with a roller, mulch kit, and a vac for 10,800. I think the mower only was 9000, and he said 8000 for the 27.

    in nj I found Toro and exmarks prices to be reversed.

    I got a toro z500 for 7300 and the exmark dealer wanted 8,000

    I also did buy at the end of the season so I am sure the prices were discounted

    I paid $6715 plus tax a few months back for my Hustler Z 52 inch with 23 Kawasaki. I added a mulch kit, blow out kit and set of gator mulching blades. Total out the door was $7350. I love the mower and it's the toughest piece of equipment I've ever owned. I demoed all the big names and Hustler won hands down. Good luck

    I’m and exmark man but in all fairness scag should of been on your list. If for nothing else to show exmark isn’t the most expensive.

    Kelly's Landscaping:

    This is true, Scag should have been on my list but I didn't price them since I kind of already knew that they are more expensive with no real benefits over the other top entries.
    I had looked into their w/b's before buying an exmark. ( I know, I know just because the w/b's are more expensive doesn't mean that the ztr's are.) when I spoke to a dealer that sold both Exmark and Scag he also mentioned that the scags are more.

    Another update to the original post, I did find a dealer with a Super Z 60" 27Kohler at $7350. He has some kind of deal on his supers because his hustler Z's are $7500.

    Scags aren't that more expensive unless you go to 29 DFI or 31 Briggs aircooled (which many others don't offer yet) & you do get more benefits with Scag than others.

    Hey chevyman, Just out of curiosity - what about wheel alignment on those IS mowers? I once heard or read somewhere that it can be a problem and hard to correct. Do you know anything about it?
