    Contractor cost for a fresh UA is $1112.00. Transmitter only is $400.00.

    No while I have a great relationship with STI, Atlantic Irrigation is a RM distributor. I need to call John Deere now.

    Is there any way to bypass my local peeps with this deal and go straight to RM?

    It seems like every remote manufacturer has been bought out ;)
     
  6. No... trust me. I can't even get parts to resell like antennas. They are TORO now anyway. I'm going to pm you.

    Peter's right, only "distributors" can re-sell RM. Someone is giving you "list price." Unless you're a contractor with a pretty good track record, you'll get that price quote.
