    Default PT 425

    Looks like the price has gone up on the 425. They're now $9,000

    not a bad mark-up in less then 3 years. i paid $7500.00.

    BUT:

    Charlie and i went on a partial window shopping trip the other day. we visited Earth and Turf and ABC Groff in New Holland PA. Both handle a multitude of attachment vendors and manufacturers. we came to the conclusion, that pt is still a good bargain and solid construction ... except for their mowers, but i hear they are changing the spindles.

    I've had no spindle problem on the 72" in about 150 hours of use. I did have to replace the foam filled rear tires with a different hard rubber fill, but otherwise my mower has been acceptable once Sedgewood and I had experimented and selected blade designs and height adjustments.

    ABC Groff represents a wide array of manufacturers, and makes some of their own products in turf equipment. Fortunately, despite seeing a lot of neat toys, all I spent was part of the cost of lunch - a great trip.

    You mean you violated the cardinal rule of viewing equipment with your wallet in your pocket, and survived the trip with only paying for sustenance??!!! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Yep - who'd a thunk it?

    'course Bubenberg is talking about evaluation of a 2445 - requiring a trip to Tazewell.

    Now that would be a great trip to be on. I can just see those two looking up and down the rows of neat attachments. Hope they bring a very large truck with them.
