Hey everyone

I am 16 and am about to purchase a trimmer and a blower from a local dealership. Now the products I will probably be buying are Echo products so I was wondering if there is a best time to buy the product where the price may be lower or a sale? Also, would it just be the dealer himself who runs the sales?

Thanks,
Jeff

Buy in January for anything used outdoors. Motorcycles, lawn equipment etc.

If theres a sale then buy during the sale.Another thing to consider is the warranty, if it's one year, buy just before you need it so it not sitting in your garage over the winter. That one year warranty just turned into a 9 month warranty before you even put it to work.

Thanks, that does make a lot of sense with the warranty.

The best prices seem to pop up right after Christmas. Most people have spent themselves out during the holidays and most retailers are cutting prices at that time. Even power equipment dealers seem to have the best prices a few weeks after Christmas.
