We have a dealer around here that one of the partners owns two lawn companies for twenty years, one down in NC and one out by the beach. I like it and buy everything I can from them. He doesn't sell his services out of the dealership and they treat their customers better than any other dealer in the area. Like they know what it is like to be on our side of the fence
If I have any questions, he's more than happy to talk about solutions.
Just because he is more successful than you doesn't mean he is being shady and that he's running demos. Just saying. . .
