Now through the end of the year. Can get really good deals on lines that will be revamped or discontinued next year.

Well, i bought a Ferris IS3100Z this time last year and i got a smoking deal. I have several threads on my Ferris, to me its the best mower on the market right now despite the decals and the chitty adhesive they use but other than that i have no complaints.

The 3100Z and 2000Z are IMO #1 & #2 for ZTRs.

Anytime between now and winter is a good time to get a good deal on a mower because most places are wanting to get rid of their inventory from summer.

I'm wondering about this too since the industry operates a little differently out this way in terms of "mowing seasons". Would the prices drop here as well even though we're never out of the "mowing season"? Even in the dead of winter, we're still out mowing here. I imagine year-end clearance sales happen across the entire U.S., but never looked into it.

Generally, most dealers regardless of where they are want to reduce the stock they have on hand before they do their yearly inventory for taxes, so fall and the very first part of January are great times to look for deal.
