    i've heard of this for different company's but i was told for toro that if you show a signed contract with a non-profit business (like a church), that you can get a discount on the purchase of a mower. Does anyone know what that rate is for toro or exmark mowers?

    I just got off the phone with my dealer. 30% on Toro and 26% on Scag. Last one I bought from Scag was 20% off.

    Here is the catch 22 for that. You have to put it under the churches name. Therefore you cant deduct it on your taxes if your a commercial cutter. :cry:

    well it depends on the model you buy (i just went to the local jd dealer) he said if you buy the 900 series you can get the discount under your company name, but if you buy, i think it was the 800 series, that it would have to be in the churches name to get the discount.
