    Looking around Sam's club today and noticed they offer two styles of Hustler ZTR's One was a Z with a 60" deck and I believe a 25hp Kawasaki. Price was around $7,100. Sign said it was $2000 off.
    Is this a nation wide thing for Hustler or just in Cincinnati?

    Those are models that a particular dealer put in the store.
    Our dealers have an agreement to "show" Hustler mowers at the Sam's clubs in there area.
    We do not sell mowers to Sam's, we only sell through dealers, our dealers are the ones showing the mowers at Sam's and it is a nationwide program.
    Dealers decide what mower / mowers they put in the store, its different in every area.
    You can only buy the mower through the dealer, Sam's can not sell it for the dealer.

    I live in NY, but I am the factory territory manager over Ohio.
    The Sam's club program is dealer initiated and worked by the dealer.
    Again... the units are not sold by Sam's, only displayed there by the dealer.
    We do not and will not do business (selling through) any mass merchant.
