Haven't heard of them but that doesn't mean much since I don't look for any either. There are quite a number of companies that started up the past serveral years and specialize in supplying parts for older tractors that no longer have dealer parts support.

I wonder how well an on-line store actually competes with dealer parts in general. Many parts on a tractor are OEM rather than made by the tractor manufacturer. Any wholesaler can buy OEM parts, but maintaining a parts system is a lot of work. OEM manufacturers come and go or change their specs. Tractor manufacturers come out with new production changes and upgrades, and then different OEM parts have to be identified.

It'd be a lot of work to keep up with a significant number of models, and then there'd be inventory costs unless customers are routinely back-ordered. I suspect that to do a decent job an independent on-line company would about have to stick to generic parts where cross-reference tables are already available and likely to a limited range of parts for a small number of tractors.

If the tractor market ever gets to be the size of the automotive market, then we'll likely see after-market parts associations like NAPA spring up. The thing about NAPA is there's reasonable certainty that a part will meet factory specs, but I doubt that there'd be the same certainty dealing with an on-line parts company. However, with the same cautions when doing any on-line buz, you might give them a try and see what the prices and delivery times are like.

I just ran across the link below today. I haven't seen as long a list of tractor salvage yards before.
