Ya the place here in Concord in Greenlands. Not very cheap in my opinion! And it takes them longer to get things done.
I recommend Belmont hardware! The guys there are awesome at getting things done for you on time and if they have a demo mower around they sometimes loan it out to you to keep you going for the day so you can get things done while they do your repair. They are the cheapest around as well for repairs and wont sell you anything you dont need. They also have good deals on mowers like Hustler, Encore, ... and more if i remember. They also carry Redmax as well. A little bit of a trip for some of the people around the lake but IMO they are the only ones I will use.
I also use to use Arts Power Equipment, but then he sold out to MB in Tilton and works there now. So if I ever have a reason to do business there I would go through him.

Y I was suprised when Art went there. I was in Art's a couple weeks before he closed and never heard anything about it. then next thing I hear is he went there. MB must of made him 1 hell of an offer. I have been into Belmont once to look around. seemed pretty good, the stuff they had. And not to bad of a ride from up here only bout 30 mins or so.

I worked for a company that took over Arts old shop and ran a small landscape business and a green house out of it. He rented it out to us. He bit off more than he could chew when he moved to that new building and tried to sell the lifted golf carts and other things that didnt work out for him. The funny thing is i talked to him a few weeks before and he said he would "never sell out to "MB". Few weeks later he was gone and not only that he started working for them. MB also bought out Lachanche's landscaping and talks about some construction company. Kinda makes it hard to go to your competition to get your machines worked on.

I heard that he didnt end up buying Lachanc's cause a bunch of the landscapers said they wouldnt come to MB for equiptment if he did. Thats not to say that he didnt buy it under another name. Im sure he has fingers in lots of things. But I guess its smart buisness on his part. But to try to put us out of buisness by doing it can only hurt him in the long run. my .02
