Gravely Dealer of the Week - Hardy's Motorsports - Norridgewock, ME

Hardy's Motorsports is a fairly new dealer having been in business six years with the last two years carrying Gravely and Ariens products.  We definitely like their excitement!  We have heard many times from our customers we are enthusiastic and passionate about the Gravely products.  It’s easy to sell our products as we believe they are the BEST!”

On the consumer side, Hardy Motorsports’ best-selling model is the Gravely ZT HD 52.  This is a consumer machine with heavy duty features so the customer gets the best bang for their buck!

On the commercial side, the Pro-Turn 400 series gets the best results.  Their sales philosophy is “If you can get them to try, they will buy as they ride smooth as silk.”

They are located in a small town and are a small business – kind of the little guys.  Their customers like talking to the owners every day for sales and service, and this grows better relationships.Hardy’s Motorsports Commercial Tip:  Let your supporting dealer set up service boxes in your shop, having common parts you may need at any time. This saves time on commercial people running to your shop for a belt or blade during their busy time!  Also let the dealer come in monthly or weekly and check boxes to resupply to keep you running.

Hardy’s Motorsports Consumer Tip: Make sure you get your mower serviced in the spring to keep the chance of down time minimal and checked over for mouse damage (i.e. chewed wires and mouse nest causing over heating).
