    I know the prices right now are low. The site says prices will increase in ''08
    Does anyone have any idea how much is the increase on the quick 36...?

    Just sent you a PM on what I know. I never talked to Gary about it but I did order from Tommy. Just call and ask them point blank how many they have left of the 07's

    I took the plunge since I need the tax write off for 07. I'm getting a Sthil BR 600 for X-mass :)

    Hey guys,
    There is going to be a small price increase on the 2008 models. It’s not to pad our pockets, it’s to compensate for the price increases we’re receiving from the metal, plastic and rubber manufacturers.

    Remember guys, it takes crude oil to manufacture all the above items, not to mention delivering it.

    With oil prices rising to over 90 dollars a barrel I forecast most if not all manufactures will have some sort of price increase, if not, their products were already inflated.

    It has always been, and still is, our goal to manufacture an outstanding product, provide outstanding service at an outstanding price.

    Also guys, as of this morning, we have a very limited number of 2007 models left.

    Im no business man but I think its a bad time for any of these manufacturers to raise their prices. There is a glut of machines out there and next year any manufacturer that tries to bang us too hard may be going the way of Everride if their greed causes us to just say no.

    I did call Tommy at better he wasn't around to answer my call, but I left my name & number hopefully I'll get a call back...

    I have no problem paying a little more like $2,200 for a Fox or quick36 mower. If they go to high, I'll look else where....Alot of competition out there...

    They'll be going the way of Everride anyway if you bunch think they can afford to absorb the higher cost of raw materials and not pass them on. I mean come on, get with the program. If over a short period of time your cost of whatever you do in your business went up, would you just keep your prices the same and start losing money, or would you adjust your prices up to help cover the extra costs without cutting into your bottom line?

    Some people. :hammerhead: And, if "you're no business man" , what is your point of being here? If you're just gathering information before starting and you don't have the sense to be a business man, I'd suggest you not even worry about starting, and just go straight to the nearest fast food place and apply.
