My question relates to dealing with the dealer. I am not familiar with how deals are made when it comes to this type of equipment. Do dealers usually just deal the list price or are they usually willing to discount the unit? Just wondering what to expect when I start dealing with him.
Would you recommend going to a few other dealers in the general area to shop the best price (if they do that)? If they do discount, do you have any idea what a fair price would be for a $35K (list) tractor?
ok, I would suggest going kubota on both of them. Dealers don't make a ton on new equipment. Here is what I would suggest. I get a price from one dealer on paper and take it to another dealer and see what they will do. They may give you a price cut if you buy 2 machines from them.
