Parts and supplies stores?

I use three different suppliers; my dealer (for thost immediate or hard to find parts), j-thomas (for blades, belts, oil filters, and air filters), and then the good old auto parts store (for spark plugs, grease, etc).

I use Boettcher Supply in Kansas, tons of parts with great prices and delivery, where I am anyway is within a day or two. They dont have a website but they will send you a catalog with "dealer" prices which is what I use. The number is
1-800-569-2700. Did I mention great prices? I get Gator Mulching blades for my 62" Toro for around $8 each, and they're really good quality blades.

Do you not have a good dealer? Do you consider him too high? Just curious. This is one industry where the owners scream and get fighting mad over lowballers and scrubs who drive the prices down, yet dont support their local businesses and dealers because they shop around for a cheap price. Kinda like buying from a lowballing company.

So you pay more for something intentionally? I buy from j-thomas, they carry anything i would ever need for my exmark, and if i have it next day air it costs about the same. If i dont need it in a hurry its about 1/2 price. I just have very little faith in mower shops due to past experience. An apology for a fixit job screwed up doenst cut the grass, a repaired mower does, so i do it myself.
