    Tractor Loaners from Your Dealer

    When your tractor goes in for service work, will your John Deere dealer supply you with a loaner
    tractor at no charge while your unit is layed up?

    My dealer has a sign posted on the door leading to the shop stating due to insurance regulations they can't loan equipment.

    Hmmmm I wonder why that wouldn't be the same as a demo ride, unless that isn't allowed either.
    Either way insurance has to be a concern here.

    Mine will for Ag but not normally for lawn stuff. If you really needed it, they will send you home with a used unit, but that would be a special situation.

    If they did I sure wouldn't broadcast it on an internet forum. It probably would be in the repair bill some way.

    The used pickup business is pretty sleazy when it comes to one owner. It can be on the dealers lot, get taken home by the employees, used by the owner to haul a big camper on vacation and it is still one owner. I would hope one owner at a deere dealer means what one would think it means. It isn't like you can car fax the hours when it got into the dealer's posession, at least not that know of.

    I never asked how the farm insurance works for tractors on public roads. I know I have been on roads with totally no insurance.

    "you" used for lack of better word below.

    Oh you tore up your transmission jamming it in park before it stopped rolling and you want a loaner?

    If you bought a used unit perhaps you should have discussed a no questions asked return period and loaner issues at that time.

    Wouldn't expect it for only a service... now if your buying a new $80,000 machine and need a loaner while the other is coming in, the dealer will be more willing to talk. But expect it to be a high hour used machine.

    I agree with this^^^^^^^
    I can vouche for what has occurred at one Kubota dealership. There was a nice sized Kubota with cab and one time I inquired about it. The dealer owner/manager wanted me to test drive it. It was advertised as new, but the owner had been taking it to his farm to plow and bale hay with. This was not something he just did one time. There were other machines on the lot that were for sale with the new price, but the owner was using them too at his place and bringing them back the following Monday.

    This question is slightly off-topic maybe, but how many hours would you expect to be on a new tractor when you took delivery? 0.1 hours? 0.5 hours? 1.0 hours????

    I was able to Demo a 1026R from our dealer. It had 1.x hours on it. It was setup for me and sold to me so I ended up with the same machine. This was a smaller town dealer so maybe in the city it'd be different.
