Im looking highly now at the Ferris 1000z 27hp kohler engine 61" deck mower. The local dealer wants $6999. I WANT a ROPS kit (Roll Bars) standard on some brands like JD ...and Roller Striping kit on it too, which will be what another $300-400? Tax is $420 in NJ. Im close to 8k then. I have a little over 1k to put down on the mower and 6k on the financing options available for this mower for the 24mo same as cash financing. I CANT find an MSRP for these mowers. Anyone familiar with Ferris or any high end Scag brand in general? How much can you come down off what a dealer is asking for a mower? Something thats $6999 im not about to spend $6999 on. They quote that they are usually $7,299 but theres a $300 rebate already applied. If the ROPS kit is installed immediately costing say $200 them im already up to $7,600 after tax. Is it a chance theyll take $7,200 with tax and putting the ROPS kit on it? If i get it close to 7k ill order it today. They also HAVE these in stock so end of the season theyre just getting rid of whats left id assume, only 4 more days for 0% financing for 24months so i know they want the sale.
