Ferris question

Does anyone know why there are so few dealers that sell Ferris' Around here atleast half or more have snapper or simplicity, since they are all owned by the same company I'm wondering why they don't sell Ferris as well. Do they not allow for more than one dealer in an area or do they not treat the dealers right on the Ferris end or what.Any insite into this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I always thought that Ferris was very popular around St. Louis, especially their WB's.

I live 6-8 miles from the where they build Ferris machines. I know the area arond here is satuarated with dealers. Maybe it's a lack of interest on the dealers part.

One of the biggest Ferris dealers is near St. Louis. Check out Scotts Power Equipment. They are located in Olivette and Arnold MO. Look them up at www.scottspowerequipment.com. Hope this helps you out.

How many stores do you want to see? Scott's Power Equipment has 3 stores spread out very nicely around town (north,south and east). Go and check him out, you can't beat his service and expertise.

do they charge you both like $60.00 or more for delivery on items to their store because they don't have them instock? Even if your willing to wait a week or two.

I dont know about your shipping issue, but STL is loaded with Ferris and the dealers.
(Are they wanting to charge you that $60 for a whole machine?)
I'm from Chesterfield and a Ferris dealer is 20 minutes in most directions.
