    New tractor,machinery price tracker

    Just thinking why do ppl not put on the price they pay for tractors and machinery. Think it would be quite interestin and helpful to keep track of and compare diff brands/dealers prices

    It is called "sticker shock" - if you see the price and just drive away, the salesman doesn't have a 1 in 100 chance of convincing you to buy anyway.

    The other thing is, there are so many "features" which can be "dealer installed" to make the tractor fit your needs - down side is all these "dealer installed features" cost money, so the final price is not reflective of the "base" price.

    Case in point for automobiles, 2 years ago I bought a new 4x4 truck - base model $38k (Canadian - only $1k in options) if you paid in full (no financing). Most trucks, with electronic this and that other option were selling at $55k.

    Just a comment, agricultural machinery is too expensive.
    Case in point, MAN four wheel drive truck cab with 380 HP pto about 95000!
    Agricultural tractor, about same HP, anywhere around 200000 to 300000, or even more!
