When I purchased my first mower, trimer and blower, the dealer gave me a "deal". The mower was $7,999. Trimmer about $250, and blower around $450. He threw in some 2 cycle oil, filter, trimmer line, and a grease gun. All for $8,000. (this was in 2001) I know there is quite a markup on equipment, so this seemed like a great deal. I will be in the market for a new mower (52'' exmark lazer hp), trimmer (redmax bc225), and blower (redmax 7001) towards the end of this season, and would like to negotiate a good price. Do any of you ask your dealers for "packages" like that? At first they told me they don't do package deals, but once they saw that I was serious and about to pump a whole lotta money in there, they got a bit more lenient. Just wondering what you guys expect out of your dealers, and what kind of price negotiations you work with them.
