What model did you demo?
Spoken like a true salesman.
You aren't (close) and I'm not interested.
I own utility FWA tractors for forage operations. I'm a custom grower/harvester.
I don't buy any power on price alone. It's a consideration but not a deal breaker.
I know you'll tell me that JD has the best haying equipment too.
I'll tell you the NH was building hay tools before JD knew what hay tools were.
It's the Ford versus Chevy syndrome.
No, I don't have NH tractors, nor do I have Case. Lets just say, a European brand and the dreaded orange brand your company likes to compare to. Flattery is the best competition......
I have a close friend who works for JD in Mannheim, Germany in engineering. I know whats under the hood.
If I wanted the European look and feel, I'd own a Fendt. Not a JD.
If JD was the best there is, there would be no others sold. Thats not the case.
Like I said before, fill in the blanks.
I do find it interesting that for replacement parts, JD is exponentially higher than the other OEM's. I guess it's the color.
