From what I've seen, it seems that Hustler largely goes after Tractor and Farm Implement dealers to carry their machines. It's nothing for a tractor dealer to have 50 - 100 farm tractors sitting outside on display, so I guess they figure why should the lawnmower be any different.

If I don't have room inside or covered outside area for new machines then I don't take them on.
