    If you are looking to get an idea on cost, that is one thing. If you are thinking about buying from a dealer online for a purchase like a Lazer, you are going to have a tough time getting any service or warranty work fom you local dealer. I would say they may be a little resentful towards you. Just my opinion. Do a search on some of the threads for the guys opinions here on building a good relationship with your local dealer. The service of the lifeline of your business is crucial to getting the job done and making your customers happy! :)

    One will only allow you to see prices on certain Lazers. Try this one. http://www.lgwhse.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_main.html?p_catid=50&sid=8sr1h50F@HYC0HE-17101520365.3d If you already saw it, sorry :)

    The funny thing is that I can get about the same deal on a 60 inch lazer with the 25, but they have a price almost $500 less on the 26 fuel injected version vs. local. Either way it isn't worth the savings to me. On small equipment, yeah, but not on a mower.

    If you are not in Texas you don't pay sales tax, BUT the cost to ship a (Lazer Z HP 52" 23 Kawa) to Virginia is $450.00. Sales tax in Virginia would cost $405.00 plus you have a dealer.
    IMO, until these online retailers can do something about the
    shipping charges (UPS set) than they are NOT any better a deal than you can find from a local dealer, and then you need to think about the benefits from a local dealer regarding repairs. Alami seemed better becasue they offered free shipping, but no Exmarks there.
    Another reason the DOT COMS could not compete.

    BryanB, only 20 minutes from your house is an Exmark dealer that has the same prices as L&G wharehouse. It is Kohler Equiptment in Upper Marlboro. Their number is 1-301-249-2200. You will have to pay sales tax but the extra $415 is well worth making sure that your mower gets worked on first if you have a problem.
