How important is dealer support to you? I ask this question to all of you to help me come to solution to a dilemma that I have. I am looking to purchase a walk-behind. What size, possibly a 48 maybe a 52. Brand either a Toro or Exmark. Out of the three dealer I will deal with two are Toro and the other is an Exmark dealer. The Toro dealers are closer than the Exmark. 1st Toro dealer is 1 miles from my house the 2nd is maybe 13 or so miles and the Exmark is 20 miles from my house. Just for reference sake I don't cut any lawns in the area around the Exmark dealer. I cut closer to both of the Toro dealers. The reason I am asking this is, my wife said that she will allow me to use most of the income tax return to purchase a lawn mower. She specifically said "The one you want." I immediately thought of the Exmark 52" TT with the 23hp engine. After talking the the dealers and asking questions I started to think alot harder about this than before. The Exmark dealer has the mower I want but the attitude of the salesperson just wasn't up to par. The Toro salesperson were more friendlier and informative than the Exmark person. My thought at the time was if he acts this way towards me now, will he act this way after I put some money in his pocket by buying the mower? How important is dealer support to you?
