 Avoid Equipment King

If I were buying a used "as is" tractor, I would inspect it with a fine tooth comb. However a factory reconditioned tractor I would expect to be in full working order or at least close. I received my first tractor from Equipment King Inc, formerly PDA International a, Mitsubishi MT21D in June. It fell apart within less than an hour. Several cotter pins were missing from the mower and it almost came loose, also the temp and fuel gauges were not hooked up. I repaired myself to keep working. Then later in week the rear end got stuck in 3rd gear. I called they said keep using till I could bring it in. End of week rear end locked up all together and the front end was barley working; useless tractor. I, at my own expense returned the tractor, said I wanted a different one. They got me a Yanmar FX24D, when they delivered it; it seemed much better than the first and worked pretty well for a week. However, no headlamps, blinkers also bad, low on dirty oil, rusty water in radiator, leaky front differential, Bad tube in flat tire, several lose or missing nuts and bolts, Water temp gauge not hooked up, loose stripped treads on linkage to mower, melted and exposed wiring near voltage regulator " Caused by their technician hooking the ground for the electrical system to the radiator that is floated on rubber and can not ground properly", and more.
They picked up and agreed to fix. Twice i have made the 120-mile trip to inspect at their request and both times still problems. They agreed to have it to me on Sat. no show, then after calling them, they said 1st thing Monday or your money back, no show again. After calling they said they would let me know Tues. When I asked for my money back on Tues. afternoon they refused as soon as they knew I was on my way to get it and had asked for confirmation that a check was waiting for me. They finally showed up at 6:00pm with the tractor in almost as bad a shape as I delivered it to them in. Still had melted and exposed wiring and had over filled the front differential to the point of overflowing. Most of the repairs were cosmetic.
They do not seem to be able to keep the commitment in their advertising.

They said in their AD "Extensive process of reconditioning" &"Quality control technicians inspect the tractor for any problems" I find this hard to believe. Please help this from happening to anyone else.

Where are you from and where's the dealership located?
When one makes this kind of statement, you should show your e-mail to show you stand behind these words. The Dealership my be on this board and want to respond. This message is going to be seen by Hundreds maybe thousands of viewers and they all want to know this is a true statement (FACT) not just someone PEE'D off at some small problem. I'm not trying to SLAM you if this is a real complaint but we all would like to see some Validity to the statement. Without showing who you are, you may be hiding for a reason.
