I have a question about buying my first 21" wb. I am in a little town on the Oregon coast and the only dealer we have is a Husqvarna/stihl distributer. I was thinking about buying an Ariens #911525 from them with the Briggs & Stratton but I want to know if this is a reliable mower. Or would it be better to buy mabye a Toro or more well known name mower. Also the commercial warranty on the Ariens is only 1yr., does that sound about right. They want $629 for the mower, but I am also going to get a bp blower and trimmer from the same dealer. Are equipment dealers price negotiable? Any help would be great.
