    Customer service and market demand are the two most important things to know BEFORE opening any kind of business. Sounds like he didn't have much of either.

    In many parts, it seems that Kubota, CNH, MF or others have their act together and Deere does not. All depends on what kind of operation the dealership owner is running.

    I really couldn't care less about all the bad JD dealers people seem to bitch about all the time. Seems to me those folks got their panties in a bunch at one time or another, so they feel better somehow by bashing Deere. Around here and most parts of the country a vast majority of the folks that depend on their equipment to make a living do it on top of JD equipment. That equipment is backed by Deere dealers.

    Hello:

    I've been to 5 different JD dealers. All have been very nice and helpful. I did not get prices from all of them because at the time I was shopping.

    Our local dealer has a huge inventory and is selling units like hot cakes.
    A Deere in every yard?
    NO kidding there are a HE!! of a lot of folks in the area that are running New Deere's.

    The only dealer that I came across that was less then nice was a kubota.

    NOw talk about, "There's only one tractor in the world and they are here. Buy one or get the heck out.
