    What kind of extra service has a dealer given you, other than lower prices to earn your business?

    My dealer will stop and fix my machines on the trailer also if there is something or if he is just snowed under he gives me a loaner and calls me when my machine is ready!

    My local dealer (Giant Oak Power Equipment) will basically stop what their doing to help me. I am not a big company, but they try to help me out as much as they can. Two years ago I brought
    in a 15 year old push mower with a broken wheel, a brand they do not carry, and they searched through their shop for the bolts needed to get the mower going again. And they refused to charge me. Another local dealer simply said: "We don't carry that brand, we can't help you". Having a good local dealer can really help your business.

    And on top of it all, my local dealer has good prices!!
