I called 2 dealers, $70.00 and $73.00 a hour. I usually do all my own work but don't feel like messing with this.
I do have a relationship with one dealer close to me but I have 2 dealers 15 miles away that have real smart mechanics and I rather pay them to fix it right faster then the shop I do deal with all the time even thought they are $66.00 a hour so for $7.00 bucks more a hour it went to that shop and a three day commercial wait, $70. shop was a week and 66 was a week.
Milo....if its posted on the wall...$85/hr shop labor rate...
$50 miniimum charge for anything...including blade changing....

ITS LEGAL.....AIN'T NOBODY GETTIN SUED.....

With more people buying parts online...its only a matter of time before these minimum charges start showing up...labor ain't cheap...buildings ain't cheap..carrying an inventory ain't cheap..
If you don't like the prices....get learned up and do it yourself....
