    long wait for a 260 hoe

    well I ordered a 260 back hoe for my 1025 on Wednesday from my local deere dealer,, they called me today to tell me that the ship date is January,, I can't imagine it taking 3 months to get a back hoe,,, I guess they are waiting till santa delivers it to them,,,

    Well at least it'll be ready for Spring. Is the dealer doing the install?

    For whatever reason, it seems like whatever isn't sitting on the lot seems to take forever to get ordered & delivered. When I was shopping for my 2032R this spring I was told that if I ordered in May it would be delivered in October. Crazy!

    The Color of Money

    I learned long ago the color of my money is GREEN. If I have it and they want it Then they must earn it. How they earn it is by giving me what I want, at the price I am willing to pay, and now, if not sooner. Just look at the site vendors, they are a perfect example. Let me see, Forks and Hooks and Springs off hand, that I have bought . These people have been a pleasure to deal with, going above and beyond what I ever expected. I will buy again because of this? If your dealer is telling you 3 months wait, what he is really telling you is . Business is really good ,we don't need your green stuff. Look else where....

    I imagine a lot of the backhoes being produced are going out on the FILB tractors.

    I agree with the others, trying some other dealers can't hurt but I suspect you'll find this is a manufacturing delay as opposed to a dealer delay.

    I waited 2+ months for my 1025r Filb. Ordered 7/26 and delivered to the dealer on 10/1. Should be delivered by the end of the week. Seems like mother Deere isn't shy about making consumers wait.

    Either it is a manufacturing delay OR dealer is waiting to order with spring order so HE can get a better price ,not the buyer. Either way if another dealer near I think I would check around. Well depending are your needing the hoe right now or if no rush OK to wait the 2-3 mos.
