I was talking with my dealer on his cell phone and he sounded like he was totally worn out. He was coming back from delivering a Hustler Super S he sold late this afternoon. I could not comprehend the numbers he was running past me. This week he has sold 76 mowers, in the last 2 weeks he has sold 53 Bobcats alone. He is buying dealers stock left and right that are going out of business and giving people good deals. He has a brand new in the crate, 60" Super Z, with a 25 hp Shibaura diesel he told me he would sell for $9299.00 if someone told him Reid Phifer said you would sell me this mower for that price. The Bobcat factory called him this week and told him he was their largest dealer in the entire US. They said if he sold (I believe he told me 13) more Bobcats before the end of June, he would sell the most Bobcat mowers of any dealer in that time frame since Bobcat mowers had been in existence. I don't know the exact number, but I would say he has probably sold somewhere in the 1000 mower range this year. He said it had been totally crazy with him buying inventory of dealers going out of business and moving the inventory so fast. He had projected himself to sell 1500 + mowers this year but he thought he would surpass that with ease. When a dealer sells that number of mowers (several lines), he is well though of by his customers. People are coming from all directions to buy from him. One gentleman came from 75 miles away this week to buy a Super Z, and told him he save $1000.00 over any other dealer around that he had checked with. I like to see someone treat people the way they like to be treated, and this dealer by far surpasses this definition. It is truly unbelievable what this one person accomplishes, you can easily understand why Exmark and Scag would give anything to have him selling their mowers and this was told by their rep.
