The company name should be considered in machinery selection. Manufacturers spend years and multitudes of resources establishing a reputation. A company's reputation is based on the quality and durability of its products, service to its customers, or a combination of both. It is important to know if a manufacturer will stand behind its product and warranties.
The importance of selecting tractors and machinery from reputable companies cannot be overstated. In some situations, the best economic decision would be to choose one tractor or machine over another, even though it did not have the better durability record, just because the reputation of the manufacturer was better.
An important factor to consider on brand name is the availability of parts. A low cost tractor or machine that has an extended down time each time it needs a part is not a good investment.
