You're welcome. I say if you need it now, get it now. $4,000 is quite a bit off the retail price, right? I doubt it will be much less in the spring because that's when most people buy mowers. The dealer would probably love to unload it now so he doesn't have to store it all winter. The one thing to consider is that even though it's not a full blown commercial unit, you will likely be able to do a better job faster than you have been for what remains of the mowing season. So you'll make more money more quickly and be able to take on more work and have more satisfied customers. You have my permission to get it now, lol.
