Best time to buy equipment?

Hello to all,

I have been wondering when is the best time to buy (best deal) a stander or zero turn. Like a scag v ride or cheetah. Is it January and February?

Thanks to all, and Merry Christmas!

Somewhere in March or April is a good time.

Sometimes dealers have older models or are trying to sell older stock that you might find a deal.

On the other hand almost all the companies are offering 0% financing now with no down payment until a certain date. Just ordered a new JD the other week, it should be in late Feb.
