    That's not a total suprise. Many dealers carry different lines and often will pull brand X equipment out of the showroom and bring brand Y in depending upon which rep is walking through the door that day. Often this is because some manufacturers make it necessary.

    Some manufacturer sales reps get a little testy when they something besides their product on a dealers showroom. Generally that's a sign the the product isn't selling well. Most dealers will move equipment around simply to avoid a confrontation with some sales reps. Hopefully if we keep our customers best interests in mind we will never need to take such an approach to business.
