Just so nobody misunderstands, this is not a thread meant to taddle on a dealer. It's just something that at times I can't help but wonder about.
There is a Kubota dealer where I stopped to look at tractors only once. At the time, I was looking to buy a new cab tractor and was just curious about what new things Kubota was offering on their machines. While there, I checked out the interior of the largest cab tractor on the place and made small talk with the owner of the dealership.
It was then that I noticed how when the place is closed at the end of each day, several new tractors are started and moved to block the two main entrances and exits. There's a low pipe fence that surrounds the place, with matching low height pipe gates at the entrances/exits.
When you think about that some of those tractors sit there for quite a while before being sold, all that use just to use them as blockades will eventually add up. I'm not suggesting that the minimal use is harming them, but instead it should make the price go down, yet you know it won't.
Think about it, some of them are started twice a day, 6 days a week, for months.
I don't understand why the owner doesn't just spend the extra $$$$ and put up proper fencing and gates. Now I realize that if a determined crook wants something bad enough, no fence or gate will stop them and certainly parking high priced cab tractors in their way won't either.
