Is it just me or is the rest of the industry seeing large price increases for '05. The exmark 27hp 60" will be around $9100 next year. I am a dealer and I have been noticing that i am starting to lose more deals than in years past. When I ask the customer whats-up they seem to imply price was a big issue. i also carry ariens witch owns gravley. should i be considering offering gravely to my price conscious customers? Is gravley a better value? if the cutters out there can save 10% on equipment cost would you switch brands?
