path pro end of season pricing (new)

So I was at my local stealer yesterday getting some things for the yard tractor and I saw the pricing on a new path pro. I'm assuming this is the entry level one with out electric start and no remote shoot thingie. They are at $360. Not bad I thought, so I have been kicking it around wondering if I should pull the trigger. My biggest hurdle is where would I store it in the off season, and where to keep it during the winter. My shed is about full and the garage in the winter is stuffed. 3 car garage with three full size auto's, 2 large motorcycles and the deluxe 30. Things are pretty tight. I'm sure I could broker a deal to have them keep it during this off season, but that would be all they would do.

Got a little off track there. Has anyone else priced out these little rigs this time of year? I'm sure I could do a little better on pricing online, but I wanna stick with someone I can go to if there are issues.

with my small garage and soo many snowblowers the only way to get them all in there is to stack the single stage blowers and one powerlite gets stacked on top of the 826

Ended up pulling the trigger, and purchasing the path pro. It is the entry level machine. Out the door, $384.58. Negotiated in a qrt of oil and having their shop prep for off season (staboil, run it dry and drain the fuel). Brakes down pretty good, took off the handle, and pulled the chute off, and it tucks away real nice.

Should have see the looks I got from the neighbors as they were all out working in their yards raking, and this idiot unloads a new snow blower.

Yea, I could have got it cheaper on line, but by the time I pay for shipping, and assemble it, I thought what the hay, I'll stick with my local Stealer.

Well, you might have paid a little more but you also have a dealer who is happy you bought from him and hopefully if you need any service that you aren't able or don't want to do or is warranty they will remember you bought from them.

One guy was complaining that the local dealer wanted a $20 or 30 dollar "registration" fee before they'd do warranty on a machine they bought on line. Can't remember the manufacturer but it was a well know brand and the manufacturer said the dealers were independent so there wasn't anything they could do about the fee !!
Sometimes buying from the dealer is the smart way to go. You can always try to get them to price match and in your case at least you wiggled out a quart of oil and a winterizing !!
