    We sell parts to OUR customers only.

    If you didn't buy from us, I can't sell to you. I have to make sure there is enough parts in stock so I can provide my customers with exceptional after sales service.

    Kei King, here in the good ole USA we have the Japanese tractors called Kubota. There are Kubota dealers all over, and most all of them will not sell parts for the " grey market " kubotas either Kubota tells them not to). But there are some dealers who will, by having their parts department as a separate shop, these dealers are literally swamped with business. Our local Kubota dealer would not sell me a clutch and pressure plate for my tractor (grey market), and gave me a real hard time about it. Because of that when I did find a dealer who would, just across the state line in Alabama, when I needed a new mower for my lawn company, I went to Ala and bought it. Got good service, a great price, and by word of mouth ( that traveled extremely fast) our local dealer has lost tons of business and money to the Alabama store. So, if your satisfied with your limited business, fine. But, unless your independently wealthy, you might want to reconsider. I refuse to do my business like you do, or business with people like you. I go out of my way to support the companys that support me ( a customer). Danny

    In the long run, the Kubota brand name has been severely damaged by this practice. Short term gain but long term pain. A dealership has a parts department to support it's customers, not to help out a chinese competitor undercut them by 50%. They are basically digging their own grave... well the brand isn't, the rouge dealers are that go against the company policy.

    Jeezus, you "nucks are a tough bunch. :pop:

    So that I'm clear, did this King guy sell anybody some bad stuff? Rip anybody off on their truck? You guys show a ton of animosity for a place that you didn't even do business with?

    Eye, I get what you think you're doing. But when somebody Googles and reads this, he pretty much stayed professional and civil and you come off looking kinda like uumm, well... you really helped his rep more than hurt.

    I guess I must be missing something being a hick "neck from the states.:confused:

    The one thing I did learn, Z is bogarting all the good weed! Talk about somebody bein' a douche!:sly:
