Or a neighbor that bought a $1200.00 seal kit for a rear wheel assist motor on his 2388 combine. Our local CaseIH dealer is bad about gouging on parts. I started pricing around and will drive the extra hour in some cases to deny them the opportunity to break it off in my hind quarter.

They are making these parts "gold". That means they will carry them, but make them the price of gold.

I believe they are just making them profitable. It really does costs them money to keep these parts on the shelves for years.

I'm surprised to see it was made in USA, or at least the bag was.

how about NH wanting $1900.00 for a third gear shift fork on an 8600!, or wanting over $400.00 each for differential spider gears on same tractor but only needing $80.00 if they were for an 8670! same basic setup!

For years, I've noticed "trends" that business's go through. The current trend seems to be: "Grab all the cash that you can before the economy collapses". I've seen others on the Nightly Business News saying the same thing. Also rumors going around that "business people" are predicting that the economy will tank in the 3rd quarter of this year - and they all want to have lots of cash by then.

All my life I've heard people talk about repairing instead of buy new. I think that the margin between repairing and buying new is getting narrower.

You can probably get them relined at a clutch/brake shop.

Not sure I agree that the margin between repairing and new is narrower. It seems like the pricing on new is continuing to grow at a "healthy" pace.

One of the joys of business consolidation. Look at the legacy parts that
CNH and Agco both have to deal with. And since in most cases they've
driven the local dealer out of business they really aren't worried about
customer relations, after all what are you going to do buy a John Deere?
This type of behavior is what has me convinced one of the problems in
our country today is to many businesses run by business majors who have
very little to no understanding of the products and services they
deliver to customers that they also don't fully understand. Same for our
teachers, they spend more time in education classes than learning the
subjects they'll be teaching.

Also understand that with the current legal climate that exists in the
US they do have a vested interest in getting you to move away from older
equipment, it helps minimize potential liability if bad things happen.
That and our government keeps passing laws making new equipment cleaner
and safer but a lot more expensive (same thing they did to the auto
industry). They need to put additional pressure on you to upgrade before
Barry & the boys puts pressure on them or use the media to assault them
and seize them much like GM & Chrysler. That and someone has to pay for
the additional taxes and healthcare costs they will soon be paying.
Remember corporations don't pay taxes, they simply increase the prices
of their goods and services to their customers or reduce their costs to
maintain their margins.
