A loaner or not, they made you a promise, even if it means they have to rent one from SunBelt or someplace. An obligation is an obligation.Yes, before I bought the tractor we spoke about this. I told him that the only reason we were buying this tractor is for the hoe. He assured me that I would have a working back hoe by the end of December. I only need to complete 1 of the excavation projects this Winter so I can pour a slab for construction next Spring. I only need something for 2-3 days -- anything that can dig footings. Unfortunately, the dealer said he didn't have a loaner.
Never promise unless you can deliver.
