How much have you guys been priced with the same options? This was the price with taking the 0% interest so no extra incentives. Base price was $58,830. Every other price i have got has been over 50K

Those dealers with inflated prices won't be around long either cause they won't sell anything when their price is higher than the guy down the road.

I have mixed feelings about this. In the past with major purchases like cars etc I have always gone by who could give me the best deal. However, with my recent purchase of a mini skid steer and excavator, I have ventured into an area I don't know much about and have had to lean the service department and salesman for advice. I have to say the local bobcat dealer (Bobcat of Charlotte) has been excellent in customer service and always trying to help. Because of that I would be ok paying an extra for a piece of equipement because I value the relationship with that dealer and salesman. People who have been doing this for many years and don't need that much assistance from the dealer may have a different view.

The benefits of paying that little extra and from your local dealership goes a long way.

If a customer buys from me they could expect: Me bring there machine in for a service, call me to drop off parts for them, Free weekend rentals etc.

When the customer buys from another dealer and they call me for services like I explained. Take a number

Meets1: Your numbers are close. The $46,165.00 is without a 74" LP Bucket: (List: $979.00)

A dealer is better off keeping the machine in stock before letting it go for that price in these times. Wait until you see the Tier4 engines hit the machines, Customers are really going to be crying. $5 to $8k increase.

Get your 75 and up HP machine before its to late..
