Calling Dealers during the snow season for one specialized piece of equipment they more they likely don't have in stock is, as you found out usually a waste of time. But it was bad of the sales person not to return the call.
Don't bother trying to talk to the dealers about specialized equipment after October - September for the upcoming season. They already sold all their equipment.
When I was working as an airfield O&M super I ordered up a bunch of Oshkosh airport tractors, the HT's, 4 plows and a blower. I liked the new stuff. I'm not a big fan of the retro look they have going on with their highway trucks. The 22' plows were $350k ish and the blower was $500k.
