Could simply be the manufacturer just underbidding and cut throating the dealers. They make the tool, they can sell it cheaper, they don't have a storefront and don't have to deal with the overhead. Possibly your dealer is just selling it at retail that Silky MSRP's. Lots of manufacturers do this. But check around anyway.
