Holy Smokes! $$$$

So I headed to my local Case IH today for some things. I walked out with a five gallon bucket of Hy-Tran, a hydraulic filter for the 886, and the rubber O rings and shims to fix one leaky rear remote for the 886. I wanted to do both but they only had supplies for one side.

My bill was just a hair over $160.00. $77 for fluid, $21 for the filter, and the rest was for 6 rubber O-rings the size of a quarter and four fiber shims. I routinely do the remotes on the JD 4440 and 4020. The same pieces at Deere amount to less than I paid for just the filter today. I never thought I would think using the green machines is cheaper! It's a good thing I love that tractor.

I hate that dealership!!! I need to just get everything I can online. I do quite a bit but thought I wanted to talk to a live person to get all of the right seals for the hydraulics. I paid dearly for that friendly chat we had. Sheesh.

In our area JD, CIH, NH and MF have all raised their parts prices 40 % in the last year. So it doesn't matter which one you have. It all has to do with most of the parts being sourced from the USA and the US exchange rate.

TSC puts their five gallon buckets on sale for about half that price every winter. I get a summary of what I bought over the year and a bunch of coupons. One is always for five gallons of (fill in the blank). Funny thing is, I think I pay the same amount the rest of the year.

Since Fiat took over CIH has gotten really proud of their parts.

Just like back home, at the John Deere dealer, it has changed hands 4 times in the last 40 years, Every time it changes hands the parts go up 35%, and shop rate go up, because they know that's the foundation of the business, they need that money to get a return on their purchase price!

I go through certain sizes a lot, and buy from a place such as this in quantity. They have a variety of material available. Ships fast through the mail. I ordered a bunch of Viton o-rings back in august for 300 thru 450 hydraulic valve blocks. 13 cents a piece.

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory.

This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong. ... [Read Article]
