    Usually August or September. Price increases usually come about October. However, this year a lot of things made of steel are increasing next month. You might want to visit with your dealer who can advise you of sheduled price increases.

    Late winter many dealers will be looking to sell off what they havn't that season, pre winter sales, as someone said, in august are good too, but start calling dealers near you and ask them. If they have the need to clear out some now I'm sure they'll tell you.

    Go for it now...


    I just bought one a month ago at Snowplow Sales Inc. in Gilsum (North of Keen), NH. http://[COLOR=Navy]www.snowplowsales.com/[/COLOR]

    $3800.00 installed. (Fisher RD 7.5') I live is Southern Worcester County (Milford, MA) and bought it up there an saved quite a bit. They had a sale (which might still be on) and that was $200 off. Then there wasn't any sales tax of course, and they give a discount of $100 if you pay cash!

    They drop you off in downtown Keen to window shop etc., while they install it and then pick you up when there finished. Did a great job too!

    Best move I ever made. It sure has come in handy the last month, and I've all but retired my snow thrower....
