    Went to another ferris dealer today to see if they could beat the price of my local dealer. first impression as I walked in is this place is not very clean and extremely cluttered. So they had the model I wanted to look at. The dealer stated he could beat my preferd dealer by $100 bucks. He took me to look at the unit. (which was in the back) And it didnt have the ICD deck. I asked the question "I thought all ferris's with 52" deck were ICD?" He said oh this is a 09 model.....I said and you still want full retail price??? He wouldnt budge..Needles to say I will be going back to my prefered dealer. LOL

    $100 bucks doesn't even matter when buying a $8k-$10k mower. how about come off $500 or $1000? that's more reasonable.

    I told him. If he would drop the price $1000 bucks I would buy it than. He said he had more than that in it. I replied I am sure when you bought the unit in 09 It didnt cost that much. LOL he had no real reply.

    In his defense depending on when he bought it this could be true. I have run into that with Ferris. I bring in a mower mid season or so...then the next year in the spring they run a special on that mower for alot less than I paid for it.
