Fisher 8.5 V Pricing question

Hello, I am located in the Washington DC area. My local equipment dealer is a huge fisher supplier, they quoted me a 8.5 fisher V plow for 5800. That price includes everything. Is this the going rate in your area? Also is the XLS a better choice then a V plow? Thank you.

We just paid 5900.00 for a new 8.6 Extreme V SS add in a deflector and Meyer curb guards came to around 6300.00

I had one installed this past July, 8'6" XV SS. It was $5,450.00 installed. They said it would cost more if I waited until after Sept. 1st.

I just got a 8.6 and a 9.6 both stainless installed for 12000 including tax I forget the specific prices before tax but they were not that much different in price, I got prices from 4qte and they only beat my dealer by less than 300 dollars, and then I would have to install it. To me 300 bucks a plow is well worth it, to not have to worry about installing and being put to the back of the line at a dealer when something breaks on warranty, after all I was only down a truck a half day, they have the plowside ready when I showed up, if I did it I'm sure I would have lost at least a day per truck plus lost revenue

I understand the no tax in NH. I would have saved about $350 on the price. The dealer is about 10 minutes from my house. The closest dealer in NH is about 45 minutes away. Also as far as the tax deal goes, on major purchases, VT has started checking to make sure they are claimed.

PTOs is well stocked with spare parts and has a good reputation in the area. I think the dealer support at 10 minutes away will work in my favor down the road (hopefully many years). Plus they run two plow trucks with the SS Extreme V as a side business.

$ 350 is a back-drag edge and a couple of thirty packs. Some of us have different priority's

Gotcha, but the other point was proximity of dealer, his reputation, and the TAX DEPT. They have been checking the last few years and it does not go so well for folks who fail to claim out of state purchases that are not exempt. So the cost of fuel and time knocked that $350 down to at least $250 if not more (depending on if/when I have to go back to the dealer).

just because you buy the plow in NH you don't have to buy parts in NH if there is warranty work to be done you do not have to go to the place you bought it. If you have a shop near you with a good rep than that is reason enough to pay the extra cash. Do your prices include tax? I live in CT and drove to NH to get my plow, but the next closest price I got from the shops in my area was 400+tax, plus the shop that I got it from in NH has one of the best reps in the north east. I'm only bustin your chops. When you get a chance post a picture of your setup

I think he is trying to say that if something breaks and need the dealer to fix it, he wants to be first in line. If customer A buys a Plow in his home town and customer B Buys it out of state and they both break down and go in to the dealer, who do you think they are going to fix first or be more willing to work with for me anyway it wasn't work losing a day of work to save a couple hundred, I would have saved on the plow but lost the day revenue but everyone's situation is different

I understand what he's saying, and if he has a dealer with a good reputation it's worth a little extra money to get equipment from them. If your going to lose out on revenue because the shop is putting you at the back of the line (which does not happen at good plow shop because they see you as a new potential customers) then you could always just fix it yourself. Or maybe they won't sell you the part because someone that has bought a plow from them may need it some day?

I'm sorry but you guys make way to big a deal about the "the installer will skip over you for repairs if you don't buy a plow from them" baloney. There may very well be favoritism that goes on at the dealer but that is reserved for his buddies, and if you think buying a plow from the dealer makes you his buddy, then I've got a bridge in Brooklyn I can give you a great deal on
