thanks for the help
I'm a complete noob as far as this mowing experience goes. Like I said, I've never had a nice mower before and I just thought it would be more like buying a car. It seems with the few amount of dealers out there, there isn't much competition or customer service. I would never drive to a ford dealership and ask them to sell me a car I'd never seen before or even sat in. No test drive, completely sight unseen. Nobody buys a car like that. Buying a mower that way seems pretty crazy to me. I might still do it, but...hmmm.
