All of my local dealers (3) only carry whatever the mower manufacturer sells. They told me they could order me Gators but they would sell them to me at list price and I'd have to pay shipping. It's way cheaper to buy them online. Pretty much my local dealers don't want to deal with anything but factory equipment. I can't even buy synthetic 2 stroke oil locally. Not even my Stihl dealer wants to stock it. The man told me if I buy 3 cases he would get it for me.rodfather said:My Ferris dealer and distributor deserves to make a living as well.
