AGCO Launches Site for Used Ag Equipment with Certified Second Life
DULUTH, Ga. (Mar. 3, 2015) — AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO) was one of the first leading manufacturers to stand behind its tractors, combine harvesters and other agricultural field equipment with a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program. Now, AGCO has launched a website that allows customers to shop for equipment they need among the growing list of CPO equipment that participating dealers are selling on-site and posting to the new website.
“It is important that farmers know that an ever-increasing quantity of AGCO-certified used equipment is now available from most AGCO-affiliated dealerships, and it’s also important for them to know that searching for what they need is fast and easy on the new AGCO CPO website,” said Eric Lescourret, AGCO director of Commercial Strategic Initiatives. “The AGCO CPO program provides cover for a wide range of equipment. It gives our customers more choices for premium used equipment with the latest technology and best features at the right price point.”
With the release of the new website for finding CPO machines, AGCO has rolled out the full Certified Pre-Owned program. The program has been in development for more than a year. Starting in 2013, the AGCO CPO program was pilot-tested by 16 dealers and then rolled out to qualifying dealers in 2015. To qualify as CPO, equipment must be thoroughly inspected and reconditioned at 100 to 200 points, depending on the type of equipment.
All AGCO-certified equipment includes an AGCO Protection package. This means any piece of CPO equipment purchased will come with at least one year of comprehensive extended-service coverage that relieves CPO customers of risk from costly repairs. AGCO confidently stands behind these units because of the thorough inspection each unit must undergo. Once it has been inspected, certified, AGCO-trained dealership technicians recondition each piece of equipment as needed.
AGCO equipment available includes models from each of the following brands and product categories:
- Challenger®, Massey Ferguson® and Fendt® high-horsepower tractors
- Gleaner®, Massey Ferguson and Challenger combines
- Hesston® by Massey Ferguson and Challenger self-propelled windrowers
- Hesston® by Massey Ferguson and Challenger large square balers
- RoGator® sprayers
With the AGCO Certified Pre-Owned program now in full operation, CPO machines have already been sold to customers. Participating dealers are replenishing the equipment offerings on www.agcocorp.com/CPO with multiple new posts every week. Potential buyers are encouraged to check back regularly.
AGCO’s Certified Pre-Owned program is only available in North America.
