I'm finally taking the plunge and buying a new residential grade mower from my local dealer. After making the purchase, I went outside and viewed several of the mowers of they had on display, including three of the same brand/model I'm purchasing. All three had about an hour on the meter (anywhere from .5 to 1.2 hours) and were quite weathered. For example, the seats were dirty/moldy and the controls looked faded from sitting in the sun. There also were scratches on the deck near the foot rest area with some mud built up as well from other potential buyers. Finally, I noticed some rust on several of the bolts that attach the arms to the mower itself. When I got home, I called the dealer to inquire about which mower I was receiving and to confirm the one they will be delivering tomorrow is not one of the three they had sitting outside. To my surprise, they confirmed they would be delivering one of those three, and they also admitted they've been sitting out front of their dealership for the past few months. I'm now at a point where I'm strongly considering canceling my purchase and buying online elsewhere, but perhaps I'm being too picky about this as, after all, I am buying a mower that will get dirty quickly...not a car, t.v., etc. I'm I asking too much for desiring a mower that truly looks brand new and is not weathered with an hour or so of use, or is the dealer being unreasonable here? Finally, as for price, their price is about $150 less than what the online retailers charge, though IMO the 4-5% savings overall doesn't seem worth it to me. Thanks.
