    I have been an installer at a western dealer for some years and have looked into both becoming a full dealer and an associate dealer. To become a full dealer you need to invest a lot of money and buy a lot of plows & sanders. If you want to be an associate you need to have a full dealer that will be your primary contact. As an associate you can get tech support but you still have to buy your parts through you "sponsor" dealer. The associate thing is the way I am going as it is the only way I can afford to do it. Even this way I have to make a large order of parts in the spring. I expect it will be about $15,000 for my startup parts order. I can still get parts transfered from my sponsor branch but they will only give me what I need if they have enough to do their own thing. So you get the drift right.... They are not going to go out of their way to give me parts when I am taking their bread & butter, so to say. If you want more info give me a PM and we can have a privat conversation.
