I am pleased to hear you had a good experience with the old Case company. In my interviews with old line Case dealers the vast majority were unhappy in their dealings and the way things ended. Some of this was their own doing and some was the company's fault. My point was they almost always maintained their loyalty to the Case brand, something you cannot say about the new company at all.
Your situation changed because Case IH was made up almost entirely of IH failed management people. The joke was 1 vice-president short of a full deck. IH brought 51 VPs to Case and they really favored the big IH dealers.
Being pushed out or even voluntarily retiring as a Case dealer was a traumatic experience for many. I'm pleased to hear you are doing well. Don
