Went in and took a look at the GR2110...looks great but the dealer won't come down one cent from MSRP of $8878. Is this common for everywhere?
Now that's what I'm talking about, not looking to steal one, if I buy one, just get it at a good fair price.Just bought a GR2110 54" this week for for $7850.
I definitely would if I were paying ca$h, but unfortunately I will need to finance my purchase.Definitely talk to rscurtis. Used GR2110's are extremely rare to find. And seeings how his is practically brand new, could be an awesome deal.
----Actually I didn't even negotiate. I called the dealer about a month ago and asked if he had any coming in and he did. Told him to give me a call when it came in. When it came it I went out to test drive it, then I just said so lets talk a price. That was the number he came up with. I was stunned and sure he messed up on the price. Never questioned it, just pretty much asked where to sign. He even knocked $100 off the bagging attachment which is still on order.
I think the 48" is a special order anymore. The 54" is a completely different beast with the Glide Steer system. My Craftsman is a 48" and I originally want the same on a Kubota. But the Kubota moved around obstacles better than my Craftsman does. As much as I could tell from the test drive. Mine will be delivered tomorrow!
That's what I was thinking as well, I'll try another Kubota dealer...I can wait for the season to wind done if need be.Deron, I would sure think with the mowing season drawing to a close you could find a dealer willing to negotiate to get items off the floor.
Get on the phone would be my advice.
The last time the OPE industry saw 35-40% was about 40 years ago. A top tier Stihl dealer, which comes with its own set of qualifications, is working on 27%. Snapper was 18% when I was a dealer, less on the entry-level mowers. Margins have dropped over the years, as the industry has been prostituted by greedy corporations and big box stores.----
Do you mind if I ask where you bought it? If they have a website I'd like to take a look at the inventory.
I'm sure they still made a nice profit, if the tractor buz is like others they're set up for a 35-40% profit minimum.
