On a side note,
Alot of people don't condone buying equipment online because you are cutting your dealer out. However, this is a two-way street. If a dealer sucks, he needs to be cut. Therefore, if I come across a good piece at a great price (I prefer new), and the dealer is too far away, or I don't like him, or he sucks, I'll buy online. Personally, I have a really good Deere dealer near me, I like the equipment, and they have great service (except I'm getting pretty impatient for having to wait 3 weeks now for a simple BP blower carb rebuild kit ). But I try not to cut them and I give them all my business in return. However, for example last year I bought a Maruyama hedge trimmer at about half price and don't know the dealer anyway. Bottom line, customer service: if it is worth paying for do it, if not buy online and save$$
