If you're like most lawn maintenance contractors, you live and work in an area that was hit hard by the summer drought. That means your mowers likely didn't get the workout they normally would. But that also means, in all probability, that area equipment dealers have more inventory leftover than they really care to have.
What does that mean? You could land some good deals on new equipment this fall. So if you're thinking about upgrading your fleet, now's a great time to do so.
You'll be doing yourself a favor because you could save big money. You could receive special pricing and/or financing. Plus, you can still take advantage of certain tax write-offs before they potentially expire at the end of 2012.
You'll also be doing your dealer a favor because you're helping him unload inventory. And you'll be doing the industry and economy a favor by making a durable goods purchase.
So be an American and go out and buy a new mower this fall.
