    I got a price on a Ferris IS3100Z with the 32hp Vangard, and would like to know if this is reasonable.

    Ferris
    $10,900
    - $250 rebate
    + $654 tax
    $11,304

    I may be able to dicker with him. At what price should I write a check?

    Yes dicker with him. That price is too high. Offer him $10000 plus tax and walk out the door. That's what I got mine for. Same exact mower and around this time last year. Brand new. He's still making $1500 off you.

    Thanks. He told me he bought that unit before this year's price increase. I think I will haggle with him.

    Really guys this is getting scary- pay the vig on a new machine in order to get better service. It might be just me but shouldn't one get good service everywhere?

    Thanks for the replies. I agree with the point about the value of customer service.
    I am still looking at different brands. Dealers around here that I like sell JD, Ferris/Snapper, DC, and eXmark. It's all hilly, lake-front properties, so I'm leaning toward eXmark because of there low center-of-gravity.

    $10,900 is a pretty good price- If I tried to bargin- I wouldn't try to get but MAYBE $200 out of the deal- cause with the rebate included- he's making a good deal. I'd bet he would take $10,700 for it
