Snow's is great for parts. Always good prices and good location and hours.

For machines though, go to Moody's in Mars, PA. Just on the other side of Cranberry. They beat the prices of all the other dealers in the area.

When I traded my 2004 Magnum 330 in for my 2011 850 Orange Madness LE Moody's price was over $1000 better than anyone else in the area. One owner even told me that they couldn't come close to Moody's prices.
