    I think most people in retail try to make 30% but it can vary.

    Depends on the dealer, some choose what they think is fair and stick to that %, others bounce around and charge what they think they can get away with on each piece of equipment.

    Yes, I do.
    The question is pretty much irrelevant. Knowing or not knowing the accurate answer isn't likely to change the deal you make.
    Anyone posting the answer here is only guessing or posting generalities, especially if they aren't referencing your own local dealer whom you are inquiring about.
    Of the items you are inquiring about, the range would vary quite a bit, as some would be wholegoods and others sold as parts items.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    Rick, lets go with a box blade for instance. In fact, lets say a Land Pride HR3584. What kind of markup are you aware of?

    You better hope on small ticket things the dealer needs 25% gross mark up other wise he well not be around long. If you get less good for you, it just mean he has better buying power over the other dealer.

    I'm more curious as to the reason why he's asking than the answer to his question.

    I would think most wholesalers need to see a 30 to 40% markup on their small goods. Running a business isn't cheap, lot's of cost involved and lots of businesses fail every day because of these costs.
