    When is the best time to purchase a mower, spring or fall?? Can you talk dealers down or to throw in extras?

    fall if they're overstocked, if they've only got 1 or 2 left they aint gonna really work it too much.

    I have always received better deals in the fall...or later winter when they have old models that they want to get rid of

    I have always thought non cutting season was the best time to buy. Dealers have the next year model arriving anytime and they can sell it before the tax man counts it.
