    Okay, I have a customer that has currently three mini excavators. Two cats 302.5 and a 303 CR and a John Deere 27d. He is looking at a new machine possibly a bobcat either 26 or 32. My customer does not speak really great English and sometimes has a language barrier while ordering parts for his machines now. Sometimes he has me order his parts for him. Are the prices of new equipment negotiable like new cars?

    Price is dependent on the dollars in your wallet and the number of machines they perceive you might purchase in the future. There is a bottom line on every sale. The purchaser's job is to get as close to it as possible.
