John Deere Extends Warranties

October 2010 Vol. 65 No. 10

With a down economy still challenging Deere’s customers, the company has responded by increasing standard warranty coverage on new construction equipment in the U.S. and Canada.

The free, basic warranty has changed from six to 12 months – protecting customers twice as long. In an industry-exclusive, Deere’s basic, no-deductible 12-month warranty actually “travels” with the machine if the equipment is sold to another party. This unique traveling warranty increases the re-sale value of the equipment and gives the buyer ‘like new’ protection if the iron is sold during its first year. Deere and its dealers also offer strong extended warranty packages for even greater protection. The John Deere StructurAll warranty for excavators is one example. The StructurAll warranty provides three years or 10,000 hours of free service coverage on factory-installed major machine structures, including booms, Rollover Protection Structures (ROPS) and mainframes. Extended warranties also travel with machines. www.deere.com
