Is the equipment shortage ending? Probably not, but look at this JD dealer's lot.

My local dealer has gotten in a bunch of tractors and loaders, so much they have enlarged the parking area!

Drove past the J-D dealer in Rutland Vt. the other evening. There were MANY units on the lot.
30 I would guess.

I just went to my dealer for filters. Compared to usual they didn't have much on the lot!

Unlikely. B2601 made in USA (for US market - mine was made in Japan but that's rest-of-world). Most likely a Grand L or two.
I checked with my dealer on 2601 because I want to order one and he said they are floated over here from Japan

It looks like the coasts and south are getting the inventory first. I see many more listed of what I ordered than last week and they are either west coast, east coast or down south Louisiana and Georgia. Nothing yet in the midwest. Now Loaders, still not seeing them other than the hoarder in texas.

There is a very large Kubota division/warehouse near me in Nor-Cal. One of the 4 in the US. I saw at least 300 backhoe booms over the fence yesterday. No idea what they were attached to, as the fence is high.

I have not noticed them before so have no reference if 300 was a lot, or not very many. But to me it seemed like a lot. Was surprised to see that many crammed together.

I did not drive around the corner, where the yard is more visible to see what else was there. I will be back later this week, and look more. The fact that there were so many suggests, they just are not sending all of everything to dealers. Or it was a recent shipment, and maybe they will all be gone in a week. :unsure:

Probably got a container or two finally from one of the ships out in the bay. Hope some LA805's are in that mix.
