    it would might be cheaper to wait until the end of the season but it would be better to wait until spring because you know exactly which lawns you will be servicing. You might gain big accounts in april and need a bigger mower or you only get smaller lawns and need a smaller mower. IMO it is better to wait until spring.

    Spring (March) usually the best time, you can find leftover and new model ready to sell. Everyone wants sale cause winter is nothing after long 3 month dormant.
    Winter, is good depending on how desperate dealers want to sell. Big dealers in my areas usually cut deal with you in Spring or last week of the year.
