    Example 1:
    Lesco Z2 23/54"..................$6499
    Lesco 32" gear drive ..$2499
    Dealer "quote" was the same as website price.:confused:

    Example 2:
    Scag Wildcat 26LC/52"...$7850..dealer A ...$7800..dealer B
    Scag 36" wb gear drive..$2800..dealer A ...$2799.. dealer B

    My question is:Do I have to wait 'til season ends to get a better price?,
    or can I shake some cash in the dealers face to get closer to cost.

    I'm not asking for the moon, just somewhere in the middle between List and Cost

    Anybody get better prices on these items recently?

    I have bought many mowers. These days it is like buying a car and that is how I treat it! I call around to see who has what I need for the best price and I make them compete for my business. The mower I just bought was on sale for 11400.00 and I got it out the dang door for 9200.00! So, yeah, you can get em to come down. I will never pay full price for one!

    I was just in my dealer in Jacksonville, Tx. He had a new Wildcat 26hpLC/52"
    on the floor. I inquired as I had bought mine last year. Current as of last week $7500.

    You guys make me laugh. Some of you guys complain about (low ballers) well dont you think a dealer is the same just trying to make a living.
