Vermeer's new Job Ready program boosts used-equipment guarantees
“We’re pleased to offer a program that provides farmers and ranchers confidence that the pre-owned machine will be productive long after the initial purchase,” Bob Martin, a Vermeer Solutions manager, said. “This type of coverage is standard with a new-model purchase, but is not easily found in the pre-owned market.
“There are lots of places to buy used equipment, but few can offer the knowledge, experience and reputation of the Vermeer dealer network,” Martin said.
Job Ready service contracts cover parts and labor for major components for 12 months, or 10,000 bales from the date of purchase, whichever occurs first. Currently, the Job Ready program is available on select baler models that fall within a seven-year model range and have baled less than 20,000 bales.
“This isn’t about a full bumper-to-bumper warranty,” Martin said. “It’s about making sure that the failure of a significant item during the contract period won’t add financial stress to the equipment owner, and it’s about providing reassurance that they can bring their machine to any Vermeer dealer for a covered repair.”
