Two Hawk - 2/11/2019 15:56 Same here, bought out by a chain and everything goes to auction now, seems like the only thing on the lot are 2 or 3 year old lease returns. They used to have equipment for everyone but now only new or a few years old.
This is common, if you think about it, how can a dealer back a 40 year old tractor on their used lot. They would rather it be down the road and sold elsewhere.Even the newer used tractors get flat tires and leak fluids, while sitting on the lot. They are not putting those older ones through the shop at $140.00 per hour.
