    Does your dealer (s) that you use give you a professional discount ? Or do you pay the retail price. How much do you think is a fair discount if any at all. Would or do you buy elsewhere for a discount. ie. out of state convience ?

    Professional discount?
    Their in the business of making money the same as everyone.
    If you deal with them on a regular basis they tend to work with you.We have no mercy on them.I'm in the business of making money too,so you have fun playing the game.
    But fair is fair,I know they need to make money off of me too.

    :) My dealer gives me a 10% discount on all 2cycle equipment, trimmers, blowers, saw's and such, He's one of the best dealers in the state in my IMPO he's also one of the biggest dealers in the state, but the phone ring's every Monday asking if i need anything, if so they deliver it right to my workshop...Marks Mowing Service
