More parts, faster delivery for less downtime

Agco makes a big investment in a new parts facility in California designed to enhance service to that part of the country.

By Harlan Persinger

Equipment is only earning a farmer money when its running, and downtime is the bane of any successful business. Farm equipment companies know this and they're constantly working on ways to make sure each dealer has the parts needed, and when they're needed. Given the complexity of farm equipment, this can be a challenge.

Equipment companies invest in parts depots for that very reason. While your local dealer can carry most parts, matching in-house repair inventory to what may break down in the field is no easy task. But parts depots can make a difference.

Recently Agco opened a new parts facility in Visalia, California. In this gallery, we offer a look at how this improved location provides a more expanded offering of parts to a wide range of customers throughout the Western states
