Why no MSRP in this industry?

    I am currently in the market for a good ZTR and I have found that it's really hard to compare brands/models without the MSRp. Why aren't they published? Is it so that the dealers can make as much profit as possible?

    I have 5-6 different dealers within 15 minutes of me that carry lots of different lines and there is virtually no way to get a price short of talking to a salesman. And they seem to get irritated whren asked about prices on different models.

    Cub posts theirs on the website, not sure about others.

    A good commercial grade ztr with 54-60 inch deck will run about 7000. out the door.
    You can go up or down from there.

    MSRP doesn't mean too much because they all have to be competitive.

    get a price then ask the people on here but you have to give the engine and the deck setup im sure someone could guide you in the right direction
