Powerhouse Outdoor Equipment has been in business since 1993 and has sold Gravely since 2007. They have four locations in Georgia that carry the Gravely line including dealerships at Warner Robins, Tifton, Valdosta and Douglas.
Their best-selling mower is the Gravely ZT 42-inch. The homeowners see the commercial companies run Gravely, so they follow their lead since the ZT 42-inch fits their personal budget and quality needs. Their most popular accessories are the mulch kits and baggers.
Their dealerships are unique from other businesses in many ways. According to Ray Hedgecock, "Our staff is in the "yes" business. We truly try to have a solution to any problem. We hire good quality, nice people and let them be themselves."
Their success comes from keeping it simple. Customers want a large selection of products to choose from with easy financing and great pricing. After the sale, they want to know their dealership stocks the parts needed and has trained technicians to do any repairs as they come up. Powerhouse takes pride in meeting all these needs.
Their advice is that you are always buying service whether you need it at that particular time or not. It is important to think about this when you decide where you purchase your equipment as you will always need service at some point down the road. You want to make sure you will be provided with the level of service that fits your needs.
"Landscape contractors are about 60% of our sales. The Fleet Program allows any serious professional to take advantage of discount pricing on a quality machine. Gravely has gained a reputation for being a well-built comfortable machine and is sold at a much better price than our competitors" says Ray.
Make sure you stop by one of their four locations to check out their inventory and visit with their friendly staff if you are in the area.
