    Rather then doing a "group buy" on here, wouldn't it be easier and better to just sell your product on here at a discounted rate for members. That way if the guys like your product, they will tell others and so on. I'm a member of the MNLA (minnesota nursery and landscape assn) and as a member we get tons of discounts on Ford trucks and other such products for being a member.

    Just my opinion......

    We may consider that in the future.

    At this time we are testing to see if some type of lawnsite discount/group buy will yield a worthwhile sales volume increase. After all that is the reason for discounting - to promote additional new sales.

    I bought an 8000. NO discount and if I had to do it over again nothing would have changed. It is an awesome machine. I had dreamed about buying one for several years now. Blade sharpening is SO easy. I sharpen 20 blades every week and the machine has paid for itself in the first month. I would suggest if you have alot of blades to buy more grinding stones. They wear fast which is fine because I sharpen alot. When you have employee's they seem to dull blades up really quick.
