    Do any of you guys purchase equipment or parts directly from supplier or do you go to your local equipment dealer and purchase equipment and parts?
  2. I prefer to use my local supplier, they have been nice and I never pay sticker for anything, even special order. Almost every major piece of equipment I have bought he has thrown in an accessory or two.
    As some one else said, "they gotta eat to".

    I don't know of a manufacture that will sell direct to the end user at least not mowers, trimmers, blowers, etc

    I guess on our big mowers - I am able to go direct. If it is the size of equipment, the dollar amount or what but we set up an account with them long ago. Our local dealer - he just stresses that he is able to do the service work. We do buy a few small things from him but he treats us well in regards to service and able to get us in and out quickly.
