I totally agree with paying full price and even more so since they threw in the trimmer...why would anyone not go back after that. I would much rather buy from them than a big name. Plus when I go in now, the price I'm given is automatically the lowest price they can possibly give so I don't even try to haggle. They negotiated on the mower because it was winter. They sell used equipment too a few months ago I picked up a tru-cut c27 in AWESOME condition for $400!!! I couldn't believe it. Nothing wrong with it except dull and missing bagger. And it's only 4 years old. I ran in to get a $0.50 part and left with that!
