    I am starting up part time next year and will have 10 accounts max. As I stated in other posts this is not
    my main job.

    My questions are,

    I haven't bought trimmers, blowers from dealers before. Only used residential before. Is it usually a standard for these items to be on sale during winter months say november - february? Are their closeout sales like car dealers do? Just curious. Or is it usualy the same prices year round. I live in VA, where we get hot summers and cold winters, just checking to see if there are sales during these months.

    Dealers will have off season discounts in the winter, and will usually sell the demo models for a deal as well. Whatever you do don't buy homeowner grade equipment. Good luck!

    Yes, at some dealers prices will be cheaper but some will remain at MSRP or close to it.
