OMG. That guy is looking for a new job. And I bet that tractor gets replaced with a new one. How sad.

Stuff definitely does happen, that probably shouldn’t have though.

A couple weeks ago we had a salesman demonstrating the auto park feature on a new expedition. Well the driven expedition auto parked itself into another brand new expedition. Two $80,000 rides were married lol. I’m sure that sale didn’t go through lol. And it wasn’t the first salesperson if ever seen back into something trying to use the auto park. Then it instantly comes to service because there is obviously something wrong with it :rolleyes:

From the last video he posted, they are bringing him a new tractor.

I can't believe the guy that delivered it didn't set the ramps close enough to start with. I guess he was too worried about his kids and not what he was doing.

I wonder if Messicks will keep using him to deliver equipment for them? The comment that Messicks left on the video said that he was an independent hauler.

I guess when you get big like Messicks, you hire your deliveries out. My dealer delivers his own units with his own rollback. Lots safer than a trailer with ramps. He picks up units tooo. I've never had to haul my tractors to his shop, he always picks up and delivers.

Been around for a while, it does work if you know how to use it. The new trucks will even back up a trailer. Just sad where this is going. I’m not very old but I remember when you had to drive a car lol.

It's a terrible situation to be on either side of. I can't watch that man's videos. He takes too long to make a point. It just wears me out wonder what he's trying to get to!

The first one I skipped fast forward to try to get to the point. The second one I only lasted less than a minute, skipping to his desk to hear nothing but what the two objections were......

I would have been out there spotting for the driver to make sure my machine got off in one piece. Not filming a video.

Messick's has always delivered our machines with employees from their store and sometimes by the salesmen themselves.

shoving the back hoe up in the air automatically put the machine off balance. Idiot driver should have opened the rear window and maneuvered the hoe close to the ground to keep the machine safe.

The video was beautiful but thanked God that the tractor is not getting into significant damage. Hey guys, it's too late to make the point.

I couldn't make it through the video's either. I was wondering though when the guy was delivering why he didn't position the rig so he was unloading uphill? Wet day, minimize the effects of gravity, slick surfaces and Murphy?

My dealer has their own fleet of delivery vehicles. Rollbacks for the smaller units and goose necks for the larger tractors. Not much worry about deliveries on hills around where I live.

AMEN!

The whole thing was probably a set up for everyone’s amusement.

Yeah, I have a hard time with videos like that. And little respect for the posters. Same thing with the people filming someone hurt verses helping them. I have a sudden urge to want to box their ears for being stupid.

Daren nailed it.

If your pride and joy is about to roll off the trailer, why stand there in the rain like a useless boob, filming the delivery? I'd be there spotting him on the ramps and making sure it came off unscathed. Can't count how many times I have stopped a friend or delivery guy from doing serious damage because they couldn't see a clearance issue. Not giving the delivery guy a total pass but, this owner is a boob. An to think he owned a small machine before the Kubota. (Can I say boob?:))

he explained his thoughts on that in one of the video's real well.

oh and Messicks is replacing the tractor.
