    My local dealers basically stock oil/fuel filters and some basic belts/blades but they just dont carry broad enough selection. What internet based company has the parts in-stock and ships quick.

    Yes, Mowpart.com is definately where I'll be getting my stuff from now on, if my local dealer doesn't have it.

    I ordered sum stuff from there last week for the first time. The prices were very reasonable (actually cheaper than other places) and the shipping cost wasn't bad either (even though the shipping charge was more than the parts!). The package got here, what i consider, Fast to my location! I used the standard UPS Ground too.
    They really seem like they have their act together with everything they have to offer with parts for different manufacturers, at Low Prices all in one place. I also absolutely Love their easy-to-use website and checkout procedure.

    So, hats off to Mowpart.com!
     
  4. This is the company I use, seems to have a good selection with reasonable shipping. I placed a order monday morning and it was here yesterday afternoon, three boxes, couldn't believe how fast.

    I think that JD Thomas is the only company in the US that has a pretty complete inventory of parts down to bolts ...

    Thought I'd mention...

    I just made another parts order online for my Echo trimmer. I went to partstree.com, texasmowerparts.com, and j-thomas.com to figure up the totals.
    Mowpart.com was still cheaper than the rest, with shipping included to my location (South LA). (Mowpart.com is in TX)
    The shipping I used was the regular UPS ground. I don't need my parts today or tomorrow so I don't know what the price would have been at ANY of the websites mentioned, If I would have upgraded the shipping.

    From my own personal experience from searching around and punching numbers on each of the sites, and others, I find that I like Mowpart.com the absolute best.

    I think you meant J Thomas in Wisconsin. They are good as well as Russo Power in IL. The flat rate shipping at J Thomas is great. I did Next Day Air on a wheel motor for very little extra.

    If J Thomas doesn't have it Russo will. I had Russo ship me a pair of the 261T's when they were discontinued. I'm not impressed with the prices the other parts places mentioned have at all. One of those places is run by Hill Country Outdoor Power on Hwy 290.

    I live right down the road from Mowparts. I have been doing business with them for years.Have never had any problems with service or the parts are about as good price your going to find.

    Bought a set of hydraulic dampeners for my Toro Z through them. They were aftermarket (as I suspected). Lasted 100-200 hours, then began to leak oil. Trash...kinda pissed me off.

    Bought a blade and transmission belt for my Exmark metro 36. Blade belt was incorrect, didn't last long. Transmission belt had a poor fit, kept twisting around on the pulley.

    All-in-all, I prefer not to buy parts from J Thomas anymore. I've had good luck with Mowmore however.

    I don't live anywhere near where Mowpart is actually located, but i can tell you this; As long as they have the part I need, I personally won't order from anywhere else online, until I'm no longer satisfied with them.
