I don't know what to do anymore.. I need a Zero turn bad.. but I don't want to pay $11496.52 for a machine that I am only leasing for 3 yrs and it's not even mine
That's about a crock. For that kind of money it better drop 2 solid gold coins into your hand everyday. I would check into "buying" one. Leasing is seldom a good deal. You may have to check into other brands to get a good deal. Heck for $11,000 you could get a propane powered Dixie Chopper that is rated to cut almost 10 acres per hour (yes, 10 acres). I only know this because I saw it on the internet just today.

I would try to check around and let them have their mower if they are that proud of it.

Good luck,
Eli

Justin forget that Husqvarna crap for that kind of money.
I don't know what kind of financing incentives the dealers up in Canada are offering but here in the states I have seen 0% for 6 months or 3.9% for 3 years. If money is tight for you I would suggest looking at demoes.
A buddy of mine just saved $$$$ on a Exmark Lazer Z with only 20 hours on it.
Full warranty and financing incentives applied.

Yeah Justin,
It sounds like you may be getting the shaft on this one dude. Bring the damn thing back. I have purchased some great machines brand new for a lot less than that. Yes, you need a Z. You've been talking about it for years & I am glad to see you making that step but not at that cost. That's just insane.

He ordered the machine so it should be in tomrororw or Tuesday. I went to Husqvarna because it's the only close dealer I got. He's like 5 minutes from my house and i've already bought lots of stuff from them too. Next option, is John Deere, 45 minutes away from here.

What kind of deal will they give you for a purchase with payments (not a lease)? Like I said before, you could buy an expensive mower (Dixie Chopper) for that price. I agree, you need a ZTR, but not at that price. That will greatly affect your bottom line.

I'm gonna double check what price they got for me, I gave them an approximate price of $10,000, maybe that's why my lease goes up to almost 11,000$. The original price on the machine is about $8500

I will have more info for you guys tomorrow, see what's going on

But even after 3 yrs, they should be able to give it to me, i payed full price (according to the lease)
