They sell used equipment too a few months ago I picked up a tru-cut c27 in AWESOME condition for $400!!! I couldn't believe it. Nothing wrong with it except dull and missing bagger. And it's only 4 years old. I ran in to get a $0.50 part and left with that!

Yeah I don't mind paying full price on handheld stuff but if I'm about to drop 8,000 and pay cash I would want to bargain a little.

Maybe we should start a club, lol. In return I expect my dealer to understand that I do this for a living and to put me ahead of a homeowner with a flat tire on his tractor, to stock maintenance parts, to get parts that are not stocked quickly and basically do whatever they can, within reason, to get me back up and running again if one of my critical pieces of equipment goes down.

Haha I agree with that as well. Just for me my dealer is so big i'm a nobody to them, the only way I would get priority is if I drop big money there that they remember me
