    Question about JD dealers inventory on lot?

    is there a way to tell what amount of stock of gators, tractors, etc., is sitting on there lot for sale.

    like they show what's for sale used, but can i see what they have for sale new?

    or is that a no about that?? or am i missing something on their websites? some dealers show what type they sale new--but not how many pieces they have sitting there.

    i'm planning a small road trip here in the next few weeks-hopefully--and i wanted to map out the dealers at certain areas as i travel along my route-so i wanted to see if i could see what they had sitting there NEW for sale. but am not able to achieve this.

    is this because it would eat up too much space on there website?? thanks for any feed back on this.

    I haven't seen anything like that on the dealers websites I've looked at yet.

    Good question Jim.

    I've never seen anything that would allow people to see a dealer's full inventory. Some dealers list everything they have on MachineFinder but it's only a handful that do that.

    Good question Bigjim. Car dealers do it, wonder if turn over is too hard to keep current. It would be nice to see what dealers have. Might prompt a road trip.

    I have a hard time believing tractor turn over is as frequent as new cars. Especially given how common it is to buy a tractor now for example and have it be a 2017 or earlier manufacture.

    Auto dealers list their current inventory as the manufacturer requires them to. It has to do with inventory replenishment policy along with finance floor planning, promotions and advertising. Many if not most dealers these days have dedicated personnel to handle web postings and internet inquiries and sales opportunities. This is an expense that might be difficult for a JD Dealer to justify.

    Additionally, not posting current inventory may assist with getting qualified "buyers'" into the dealership as opposed to "shoppers" or "tire kickers" who aren't as committed to making a purchase.

    Then again... a few JD dealers around here take advantage of the freebie postings that Facebook provides. They are constantly posting photos of their used equipment on Facebook. It's free and requires no overhead... the salesman walks out with his phone, snaps a couple photos, enters "Call Bob for info" and presses the button to post to Facebook.

    There's no real reason they couldn't do the same with the new stuff they have on the lot.

    What is missing there is the motivation to do it.

    Auto dealers didn't just start taking pics of their inventory and building websites. 3rd party developers saw the chance to make money so *they* developed the software to extract all the data on each vehicle from the dealer's computer systems and convert that into web sites. They sold that software for a song to the dealers so the dealer had no real reason to object to the idea. Then once they had enough dealers on board those same 3rd party developers took all the dealer's data and sold it to Autotrader, KBB, Edmunds, Autobytel, etc...

    The auto dealers do pretty much nothing to get all of those cars and trucks listed on the web. The 3rd party developers did all that because they thought they could make money for themselves by doing it. Everyone seemed to benefit from it so the idea took off and no one complained that the developers skimmed a little off the top in the deal.

    I don't know if the same incentives work in the tractor market. I don't know if companies like Deere would give 3rd party developers access to their computer systems for a start.

    thanks for the info. i had no idea what to think about whether i could see what a dealer has sitting on their lot for sale.

    sounds like a day sitting on the phone calling each dealer along my route-then deciding if i'm stopping there or not.

    in the old days-didn't deere have a way to truck a machine between the dealers--kinda like interwebbing thingsif A-had such and such and E-wanted one or that certain piece could be sold--they would get it from that A-dealer. now this was over 20 yrs ago-i was told this then.

    like i said just looking for the easiest way to see what's at certain dealers. always great to learn new things. thanks

    It seems that a lot of tractors differ by things like lift capacity, horsepower, and other "work-related" things. Tractors are also generally less of an "impulse" buy or "have to have it right now" type of item. So, ordering one and waiting is pretty reasonable for a lot of folks.

    With that in mind, they don't have to have your exact tractor on the lot in order to help you understand what you'd be ordering. That actually happened with me as they showed me the 2720 for size and I ordered the 2520 because they didn't have any.
