    I wish we had a private dealer that was even remotely like that.
    But we don't. Most of them compete to see who can serve us the worst I think.

    My Lesco came from out of town and their service makes the locals look bad from 80 miles away. Best service I have had so far. But the distance may make warranty-type shop repairs a bit of a headache. But after the warranty period I will probably still use them for anything I can't fix.

    I used to have one like that b&b tractors in dalton GA. They where awesome anytime I had a mower down they would give me another while mine was being fixed. I know a lot of dealers do that but when I started working for the company I was working for they had been buying all thier equipment elsewhere. I stumbled apon these guys and we would gladly drive the 45 minutes out of the way to use them.

    We have one like that in our area: Gator Power. They pretty much deal exclusively with LCO's and tree guys. Service is awesome, thats where I take my 2 cycle crap if I have any problems. Only drawback for me, is they dont sell/service eXmark, they are a Scag, Wright, and Husky dealer.

    The eXmark dealer is only like 10 mins away though, they are pretty good also service wise. I would never buy any mowers from him, but his service dept is good....

    I HAVE A DEALER THAT IF MY MOWER IS DOWN HE WILL GIVE ME A DEMO TO USE TILL MINE IS FIXED AND THERE ARE 3 DEALERS HERE BY ME THAT DO THIS. I THOUGHT THAT WAS MORE OF A NORMAL THING. I COULD BE WRONG..hammer
