Grass gobbler - use the SEARCH feature to do a search for threads on the subject. I know there's been quite a few related threads. Good luck.

I've received their catalogs, and the prices are eye catching but if you start looking for a new mower ,going to your local dealer is just as cheap.Also my question is what happens when they need repairs done?Good Luck and welcomt to LAWNSITE!:D

I've bought lots of stuff from them- blades, filters, ect... I've never had any problems with them. As a matter of fact, sometimes they call me up, to see if I was satisfied with their services. I would never purchase a piece of gas powered equipment from them. What do you do when theres a problem?

ive had some problems with them. i havent bought any gas powered equipment, but ive needed tools like mattuxes etc. each time i went in for a tool, they wouldnt have it. so, hed order it from me. i mean you can get most hand tools anywhere. it took over two weeks each time for him to get the tools in. if you are a supply place, you should be able to do better than that. i just go to a local hardware store now, cause they always have the tools i need.

I think it would be better to build a relationship with a dealer, especially if you are just starting out and don't have much equipment. If you purchase from a local dealer and the product goes down, they will usually loan you a replacement until your product is repaired.

Bob doesnt carry that stuff because the True Value across the street carries it cheaper than he can. FYI.

We have bought blades and parts but never a machine
I agree with walker -talker buy from a dealer they will if they are a good one take care of you.

I bought a backpack blower from them 2 years ago. Still runs good, & most importantly, it has paid for itself many times.

It's what's out back that counts. Behind all those shiny new mowers is the repair shop.How well do they service what they sell? How long have the mechanics been with the company ? Believe it or not, when you find a company that has long term employes you have usually found a company that looks out for the customer as well.Companies which have a high turnover of employes many times have a high turnover in customers too.Shop service not just price.

We have purcahsed some equipment from them. However, we have two full time mechanics and I'm not concerned about the service part. If I had to use the dealer for service work, I'd buy from the local dealer. A couple years back we purchased 8 hydro's, 8 string trimmers, 8 backpacks, 8 stick edgers... got them from the dealer as I knew we would need loaners for breakdowns and warrantee work. With that many units the local dealer's pricing was 2nd best, even though we went to three states for quotes.... so we used the local dealer. Didn't have any real warrantee issues but felt much better spending that much money locally.
