Well i looked at the J-thomas magazine for a hydro pump, checked prices found out it will take them a week to get it well thats not going to work but j-thomas has always been great. Well i called the local dealer that i have bought 10 machines from in the past 3.5 years well their price isnt working but they have 1 in stock. So then i decided to called landscaper pro. they took more than better care of me and i will see the pump tomorrow. Wait till u see the price difference. does any one else have issues like this? Also the closest dealer is 12 miles! We need more local parts dealers. J-thomas $399.00 landscaper pro $405.00 Dealer $788.00 then well we can sell it to u for $680.00 "whats with that?
