    Well I have a new customer as of yesterday. One of the local cutters called us up and asked one of the salesmen a price on a air filter. He told him $8.75 and the guy flipped. He later came in the store and told his story of how my competitor, across town, charged him $21.64 for this same Oregon brand filter. When purchasing the filter the salesman at the other shop explained he was giving him a 2% commercial discount. Well after looking at his receipt, he was charged list+10%-2% ! I swear my competitors are my best advertisers.payup

    I recently about had a coronary when buying an air filter for a 23 HP Kawi. This is the regular type (not canister) it was $26. If I would have bought from you, how much would it have been without shipping?

    Not a problem. I will have to talk with you before our next order. See if we can do anything with quantity orders, and/or shipping. :)

    Okay Travis, add me to the list of new customers. I have always tried to support my local dealer, but a $19 difference on an air filter has convinced me. You would think that the same dealer who takes big $$ for equipment would also charge a reasonable price for parts that relate to that equipment. I will be contacting you for supplies in the near future. Thanks.

    Is that original Kawi, or Oregon 30-054?
