    Sounds to me that if the dealer is quoting 20% below MSRP that he is doing you pretty good. I don't hear many getting better than 15% and in some parts of the country 7%.

    No, I haven't been to that dealership. They are a little closer than the dealer that has the old stock B3030, I'll give them a call and see if they happen to have any on the lot.

    Yes I was looking at B3030s. I did contact Barlows and he said they have none in stock and none in the warehouse, but there were a couple dealers within 300 miles that had one on the lot. My local dealer made a couple phone calls and found out the B3030 couldn't be ordered any longer, only remaining inventory can be sold.

    When I got quotes on a new B3030 (before my dealer found out they couldn't be ordered any longer) the price they gave was about 9-10% off MSRP.

    Reponding as a dealer, you are talking about a model that is being replaced. There are no additional programs at this point from kubota but as a dealer we get very hungry at this point to move this type of equipment. Kubota might not offer any additional discounts either if their inventory is low! On the same note anything that has sat in our yard to this extreme is also a must move piece. I'd find out what the new model would be priced at in your area to compare what savings you might have for the old model. When trading at a later date the newer model will be known from 2013 or newer or on the old model from it's start date!

    I wouldn't worry about fluids, etc, as normally tractors on the lot do get some "exercise" every once and a while -- customers driving them around for demo, dealer moving inventory around for display, etc. Just look to make sure there aren't signs of "use" such as scraped paint on the buckets, tread wear on the tires, etc. If there are none, then I'd say to negotiate the best deal you can and jump on it. Could be a great opportunity to get a new tractor at a discounted price. Once you start using the tractor, your wear and tear (even if mild) will soon out-do any age the tractor has accumulated on the lot.

    What are the hours on the meter? Anything under 10 wouldn't bother me at all, in fact I'd probably still be OK with up to 20. More than that, and I'd ask them to discount the upcoming 50-hour service since they have already spent some of the hours before it was delivered.

    Sounds like a reasonable deal to me. Many tractors in my area spend their entire life out doors. It is better under cover, but this tractor doesn't seem to have been hurt yet.

    Shoot, that is nothing. I'd jump on the deal.

    The closest dealer to me had the same thing when I bought.
    They had A brand new sun drenched slighlty
    starting to rust tractor. No $pecial deal offered.

    I found a newer model much
    farther south, delivered, for $500 le$$.

    HELLO!

    They tried to pump into me HARD that it is not the tractor
    build year, but the date it is pressed into service. Well, NO!
    That is absolutely wrong, you see MOST HUMANS want to know
    what "Year" that tractor or car is, and I wanted a NEW tractor, not
    a tractor already one model year old.

    They offered no deal, I walked...I asked for a newer unit to be shipped
    in for me. They LIED and said it would be 4 months. I made a few calls
    and proved them lieing...byby....................................

    I even ran the engine numbers and found it was over a year old.

    Knock 4K or more off there asking price and offer that including a 2 year non commercial
    warranty. If they accept great! If not, move on. If your worried about dissing them off
    then all's I can say is; "It must be nice to be so rich that your more afraid
    of hurting the feelings of a dealer, then giving to your own family, of which if
    you pay long dollar, your depriving your family.."

    Think About It.

    Do you think they are going to turn you away for service or "Stick it
    to you" when you do come in for service, even if you bought elsewhere?
    They will do that ANYWAYS regardless of where you bought it!
    They have a business to run, they HAVE to charge big money
    or they will not be in business for long!

    Make YOURSELF happy, not them...
