    I'm going to be getting a new mower this fall. The last two ZTR's I got I paid the sticker price. I know every dealer is diffrent, but is it possible to talk them into lowering the price, throwing in some extra blades, or maybe a suspension seat?

    Is this a good time of year to buy or would it be worth waiting untill spring? Exmarks Zero payments untill March 2003 sounds pretty good if the intrest is reasonable.

    I've got three exmark dealers, two dixie, and two Great Dane.
    Planning on demoing something arround 25hp*60" cut.

    I've never paid sticker price. And I always get something, blades, plugs, phone calls when they're offering free lunch for contractors, etc...

    About when to buy a lawnmower can be up to debate.
    1. Buy in the off-season since sales are low and they'd love your business.
    2 Buy during the regular season. Sales are up, money is coming in good and we can cut this guy a break.

    If you have a good relationship with your dealer you shouldn't have a problem getting a discount regardless of the time of year.
