More tidbits, and they are always helpful.
If you cannot seem to find the one your looking for (sounds like a song)
There is a huge tractor yard in Fresno California. I mean it's the Mother-load of parts tractors.
You can probably find them online.
I personally, would be inclined to rebuild as opposed to the price tag you have been given.
Buy a couple junkers and then new parts, but that's just me.
Sure new is nice but who are they trying to kid with those prices.
Do you need to make it tier 4 compliant?
I'd think since your not using it commercially that you would not need to though you couldn't sell it that way.
That's not your intention anyway.
The reason I tried to deal with Sany was the companies own add on Alibaba.
Then today I finally had a reply to the last e-mail I sent from a direct address
and not through the Alibaba web message system.
It was from someone at their US corporate office.
He told me the Alibaba adds are incorrect and that all exports need to go through their distributors.
He said he would have a distributor in the Los Angeles office contact me.
So It's a dud, never-mind. Ha!
I read the enticements for getting a franchise from Sany and know what the markup is, roughly any way,
that's why I was willing to give it a shot in the first place, to avoid the dealer markup.
I'll be shopping for a used one now.
One of the things I have learned in my shopping is that the online sellers,
have their prices jacked up so high that you really can not use them as a realistic valuation.
That must be where the old used car salesmen wound up.
Oops, I'm not talking about Steady.
You know what I'm trying to say . . . . right?
Oh, one other thing I thought I'd throw out and maybe I'm wrong but I would
not worry about to much horsepower, as in excess.
It will simply not be used and sort of just be wasted.
If I needed 110 hp and a 140 came around I'd go for it, if it fit.
