That may very well be, but it would be completely shortsighted. I mean a lot of these dealers don't move that much in the first place. Letting everyone know there was a sale would far outweigh trying to keep the discount on a few handhelds for themselves.

Shindaiwa and Husqvarna are both doing fleet discounts of 20% right now.

Really I am jealous - the only dealer we have out this way is Stihl - and they NEVER go on sale.

Not all dealers are able to be in the same purchasing level or advertising level and therefore do not get the opportunity to participate in these special "national" promos. That's the reason for the "at participating dealers" note. Just like Echo having a deep discount upcoming sale on the SRM266 unit that a certain smaller dealer here will not be able to participate in due to not being able to order something like the required 24 of them on their spring booking order.

I took the printed flyer to my dealer today and they found out about the promotion. I picked up a 580bts since they didn't have a 570. 20% off is great!

Well it's a good thing you got the 580 cause a buddy of mine said the 580 kicks the 570 butt...

I went to my local dealer and was told I had to buy a mower & handhelds to get discount. Said I couldn't buy a blower or trimmer separate and get discount.

I just did a Google search for "Husqvarna Fleet Week" and found a flyer online that I printed and took to my dealer. He was upset that no one from Husky had emailed him about the promotion since he probably lost out on some sales. It ends tomorrow.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.
