    I'd be happy to spend a bit more with my local dealer, but not $ 2500 worth!
    The actual difference on the 3016HST is $1300 between the 2 dealers. I was just quoted $16900 on the same tractor as they were out of the gear model.

    Yes, the more I read on this forum, the more I step up in tractor size! I'm leaning more towards the 3616 ( 8hp more), and there is $ 2500 difference on this model between dealers.

    For those that have not bought yet, I think most dealers are above that price since the price on the tractor and on the loader have increased. Keep in mind that some dealers advertise at cash price which includes rebates, some at 4.25%, some at 0% with the buydown built in to the price. So you need to compare apples to apples.

    Currently a bunch of dealers are waiting for 3016s to arrive from Mitsubishi. Sales way outpaced projections and this tractor will be in short supply for another month or two. If you find one and like it at a reasonable price, I'd buy it.
    Hmm. Was it a coincidence that the price went up just as the company noticed that the sales were outpacing the projections? I don't mind the supply and demand design of economics, but really? It just seems very convenient for the company.

    More to do with the Yen vs the USD. Typically tractor companies raise prices some each year on all models. Steel prices, energy prices, and dollar exchange each conspire to keep prices going up, not down.

    OK. The exchange rate following the tsunami. That I can completely understand. I also understand the increase in materials or if something is re-engineered or improved upon mid-year etc.

    I just am not a fan of companies who do it just because they see an oportunity to make a little extra.

    Sorry if I came across a little harsh on that one.

    It sucks to see prices go up, but it is basic supply and demand, and why not, it is called capitalism, something we Americans hold dear. I wish I had something in demand enough where I could enjoy an increase in my margin.

    What happens is the dollar exchange and shipping increases erodes margins until they are selling at or near cost. The price increase is generally done just to get the margins back to where they were. Most price increases from Mahindra, in this competive market, are just corrective. Of course as Mahindra gains market share there should come a time when they increase margins, but that would have to be done very carefully or sales could slip. It's a tricky balance.
