I know you all say to buy equipment outright but Im only am 15yo, my mower isn't going to last much longer using it commercially, and I want one before fall. My price range is $6500 - $7500. What is a good down payment? Is there anyway to bargin w/ the dealer to knock the price down a little? I can probably have around $1500 before leaves start to fall. There is no way for me to buy one outright. I want a warranty on one. There is good financing right now. It would be in my dads name until January then it would be in mine. Do you think I should try to stick it out until next year? I really appreiciate it. If I posted this in the wrong place please move it.
