    Not sure how many people use Facebook, but I saw an interesting post from Scag today. Here is a cut and paste from their post:

    Starting January 1, 2012, Scag will be offering Three Great Ways to Own a Scag Mower! 0% financing for 48 months and two other discount programs will make owning a Scag easier and more affordable than ever before.

    Here is the link to their website with the details.

    Looks pretty good. Besides the 0% for 48 months they have "buy a Turf Tiger or Cheetah and get a walkbehind at fleet pricing (up to 20% off)", fleet price on a single Vride (up to 20% off), and the Pro V pricing.

    So there are deals for the guys without great credit. I may buy another Turf Tiger with the 0% for 48 months if I can get fleet pricing with it (I'm eligable for fleet). Otherwise I'm going to wait one more year.

    Are you trying to trade in your Exmark belt drive that you bought last year? I'm sure most will take trades (mine does) but are you willing to take the hit from the offer. Also ask if they would put it on consignment.

    With the question of warranty's being transferable, a one year old mower will take a big hit. Why would one want to buy a one yr old mower for $500 less than new? So they price it a grand less. Then the dealer wants to make a cut of the sale so he needs to take in it for $1500 less then you paid if he wants to chance, making $500 (he may want to make more, especially if you hop between mfg's and dealers).

    You are always better off selling the used mower out right.

    I'm going to see if I can sell it first. Sometimes its just easier to take a hit, than hassle with nit picking sobs that want something for nothing so they can resell it a.week later on cl. I still may keep the metro, but if.I pass the fert and pest certifications I would like to be a more efficiant. I also may be getting into another business adventure.

    0% for 4 years is great if you can get a better price than just an inflated MSRP. Otherise it's an average deal IMO.

    I emailed my dealer on it. I'll be able to get fleet pricing with 0%. Going to go over pricing next week on different engines with the 61" deck.

    "Well qualified buyers can take advantage of the 0% for 48 months financing program on the purchase of any new Scag mower".

    Is anyone well qualified now?

    Sheffield sucks bad. I like GE money way better. Sheffield screws the crap out of you.
