    I was at the dealer today. He had a Woods RB60. It was $699. Back in the summer he told me $650, maybe he was going to give me a deal since I had just bought 2 tractors.

    Roger,
    Steel prices have gone up as well. I just ordered an 84" construction attachments extreme duty extended tooth bar to go over my bolt on cutting edge. The dealer quoted me $590 he called and placed the order with CA today. they said that 2013 prices have gone up 4% due to steel cost. So new price is $613 he called to make sure i still wanted it. I don't think they care if they had it last year they just look at book prices and then mark it down to their normal discount %

    This blade was a new one, it does not take long for the woods orange to get flat. I bought a woods RB72 about 2 years ago and it was $650 so things have gone up a lot since then.

    I talked to the John deere Dealer that sold me my JD 1026 they sell Landpride equipment and asked him if my 1026 would lift the RB1660 high enough for the tilt to work and he said it should. I hate to tell him but he is $75 higher on his price than his competition. I asked him if $750 was the best deal he could make me and he said yes funny how his competition only wants $675! It kinda makes me mad I have spent close to $20,000 at the JD dealer and he can't cut $75 off his price, guess I will be buying it elsewhere.

    If the competition is a kubota dealer, that may be the reason they're cheaper. Kubota has a deeper relationship with Land Pride. Just a thought.

    I just went and bought the Landpride RB1560, I talked to the salesman and he was very helpful and honest. I told him mainly just want to use it to grade my driveway or blade snow and he suggested the not buy the one with the tilt. I don't think I would get enough use out of the tilt for the price difference. I got the RB1560 for $495.

    Cool, post some pics when you get it. Honestly I think tilt on blade for a small tractor is just for bragging rights.
