I am going to buy a new WB here soon, either Exmark or ferris, but I wondered if you could wheel and deal with them and get them to come down on price like you would do when buying a vehicle? I assume you could since you are spending that much money and they are like any other dealer,(out to make money), ecspecially if you are going to pay cash for it. If they are asking $6899. for the ferris, How much would be good to start at?, figuring you would have to go up some, Maybe start by offering around $5900 and gauge their response and maybe be firm at around $6200-6300???? One friend of mine said to always offer them half of what they are asking and give yourself room to negoiate, he always got cars for much less then the asking price!!!, but when you can pay cash for a new truck, they will come down quite a bit!! He always brags about the time he got a new 1994 Ford F-150, 4x4,with all the toys for the same price as a stripped down 2WD F-150, Although it was before I met him and he also sold the truck before I met him?(A little convenient)!
