    My deal straight up - I brought all my trailers this year to my exmark dealer as they are also an equipment dealer. Lights, brakes etc. $600 in parts, $4500 in labor. They wont budge. Well I have bought a dozen machines from them. Well our other equipment dealer in town now sells TORO. I had toro early on and no complaints but dealer went out of business, exmark was picked up by these guys so I switched and no complaints but this trailer thing has me. No price was given on the work to be done, I said if lights LED lights not working, fix, if brakes need done, do it. Everything on the bill is itemized out, including there labor which just floored me. Lesson learned but now thinking maybe move on and get toro?

    you don't fix your own trailers? What you been doing all winter? You ever hear of the internet for fixing things. Yeah don't take it to the implement dealer at 125 an hour.

    Were busy all year. Snow. Built a house, remodeled a 8000 sq ft salon. Equipment work. We really don't slow down, just shift gears. Still give everyone 45-60 hours per week. I don't stay home. I don't fiddle in shop passing away time.
