    The only thing not going up is the plowing rates. They just keep going lower.

    No you should have bought them before you needed them! the prices only go up through the season! Most dealers jump their prices up during the season . The reason they told me was to pay for the extra shipping of these blades . They all have to send orders into the manufacturers earlier in the year telling them how many blades they want. If they run out then they have to pay extra to get more shipped in to them. That has been what all the dealers around us have told me. I have figure out its best to buy them during late summer when they have over stock of them they sell them for a lot cheaper because they want to get rid of them so they have room for the next model year blades.

    Reminds me of lawn mowers. They keep climbing but the rates keep dropping.
