Dealers Not Accepting Some Brands on Trade

   / Dealers Not Accepting Some Brands on Trade #141  
If I was looking at doing business with a dealer and saw them post an ad like the original post making a sarcastic/snide name change like 'Bad Girl' they could f right off. Having an attitude like that in common business dealing shows me I'd want nothing to do with them. Lack of professionalism.
Guaranteed that was from a 25 old something spoiled brat in management who thought that a perfectly alright thing to say because all of his friends are spoiled brats and entitled as well and a phrase like that swims within that group.
I dealt with "wiz kids" like this in my 20 yr car/truck sales experience.
No class at all.
They used to say "sticker is quicker" back then.
Yeah, ok.

Wait a minute. We're blaming dealers for not buying inventory that is slow moving, often problematic in parts or service and probably at a price that is above market levels. The customer wants to get in a better brand and unload the less desirable tractor on the dealer so they can take the resale risk. Is that a good business model?

Capitalism is we all act individually in our own self interest and the market tells us the value of everything. Eventually, marginal quality will improve or perish and quality goods will command a price that others can aspire to. Or perish.

There's two things going on here.
1. Many here do not know what it takes to run a retail, goods and services business especially in the current atmosphere.
2. Tractors are not like "cars" in the least in terms of trade value or market share.
There is little to no comparison.

Very interesting read, read all 15 pages. Personally I can't blame the dealers as I wouldn't buy one of the more obscure brands either. For the first time in 39 years, I bought a mower from a dealer this year. It was a trade in, and was priced to sell as is. Generally the only thing I buy from dealers is parts.

I’ve been noticing that some tractor dealers won’t accept TYM, LS, Branson, Bad Boy, or Mahindra tractors on trade. That may make it more difficult to sell/trade your tractor if you own one of those brands. Are these dealers being uppity about their brand or do you think they have legit business reasons for doing so? I’ve never seen a car dealer not accept another brand before so why do tractor dealers do it?

The honest answer is, these tractors are JUNK. This may offend some, however, the truth usually does.

Around here many brands are hard sell I think. Most off brands do not have very good dealer support. JD and kubota is what we see mostly when out driving around the farms. Many years back Massy was popular but lost their respect. New Holland has a good size dealer to the north but I seldom see many other than a few large units in the fields. Lots of older IH tractors still running, they seem to go forever too as I see the same ones in the field I saw many years ago but no dealer for them that I know of.
When government runs off all the cows and cattle things really change and not for the good IMO-
I think as the popularity increases the off brand tractor will become more acceptable to dealers,the newer brands need a better network of dealers and staff who are competent to handle working on them.They have their work cut out for them competing with over hundred year old manufacturers who have a history

Your opinion isn't truth, and it offends because at best you're too ignorant to understand that.

There are so many arguments for and against all the various manufacturers; from politics, to ergonomics, to dealership and parts. Those are real, legitimate arguments. You popping in here, spouting your opinion as fact, treating it like it's some universal truth- that's the behavior of internet trolls, and teenagers, which are you?

Offend? No. Truth only "hurts" when you come to the realization of truth yourself. Not when someone you dont know at all makes a statement. What you have is a opinion.
