Im a homeowner with four acres of heavily fertilized grass to mow in need of a new mower. Ive spent the last week searching this forum for some direction on which mower to buy. Ive ultimately decided on either an Exmark or a Scag. I started my shopping yesterday and went to both dealers. Both showed me a price list that seemed to be provided by their respective manufacturer. When I asked if the stated price was the best they could do, both dealers looked at me like I had just asked to do something unsavory with their wives. Ive noticed significantly better pricing listed on the websites of dealers out of state and figured that there must be some wiggle room in local dealers pricing. Is this the case or is everybody paying manufacturers pricing? PS This site and the input from you guys has been invaluable in making a decision as to which mower to buy, Thanks!
