You're reaching, Pioneer.
I have worked professionally as an aluminum welder. I know what I am talking about when I say that the undampened vibration of that little motor spinning at 3000+ rpm is worse than the highly dampened impact on a motorcycle frame.

..........and I raced motocross for about 6 years. I can tell you that the impacts of jumping a motocross bike, pounding through whoops etc. is far more destructive to an aluminum frame than the vibratory buzzing of a truckmount.

When it comes to purchasing a truck mount , the price is usually a MSRP? Or is there wiggle room?

I have never seen a distributor discount any of the major brands. In fact, they add this and that, especially if it is being financed. They figure that you are intoxicated in all the glory of getting a new machine and thus, the ensuing cornholing becomes standard protocol. After the fact, you are nothing more than another street walker in the master pimp's kennel.

I paid cash for both of my truckmounts and didn't get any discounts. although they treated me well in other ways.

Anyone use interlink for a loan, not a lease? Curious how their rates are.

3.99 to well qualified buyers at least for the 1200 SE. You can get 3.99 on slide-ins if you purchase a portable with the package.

Guys paying cash as no relevance to a discount. First of all when you finance its through a 3rd party, yes even with interlink, to the supply house it's a cash deal no matter what.

When you finance the distributor will often get what's called finance reserve on the loan as well.

I always find it humorous when a customer offers me cash like its se benefit to me, I want them to finance for the reserve and ability to sell extended warranties and wrap it in the loan.

Biggest misconception in vehicle financing for sure, has no done their homework when purchasing a vehicle?

It's all in the Google box people...

Who would buy truckmount and then buy a portable with it?
Someone who wanted 3.99 instead of 7.99 on their loan I guess. That is their program for now. Just got approval this afternoon on a 1200. Putting it in tomorrow. Or at least starting it. :)
