my opinion probably is not needed here but i have not been very impressed with the promotion they were running. maybe they should throw a bone at those of use that have been customers for the 25 years they have been in business instead of giving away $25k worth of equipment to someone that has had no desire to do business with them until now that its free. sorry i had to get that off my chest.
Lol. At first I was going to let that go but as a supporter of capitalism, I have some issues with what you said.
For 25 years AgLeader has been creating stuff that customers have found useful and profitable to their operation. AgLeader set a price that would be profitable to them and the customers chose to buy at that price because they felt the value more than offset the cost. This is how things are supposed to work.
AgLeader chose to give away some of their profitability. That is an entirely separate matter from their history of selling stuff to help farmers. They can give their profits away however they see fit. Long term customers are not owed any special treatment when AgLeader decides to give stuff away. AgLeader fulfilled their part of the agreement every time by providing precision parts in exchange for money.
I would be fairly irritated if someone questioned the manner in which I chose to give away a portion of my profits.
