couldnt get a front mount snow blower since November lol. That’s how I ended up with a 3pt one.I've been reading about a lot of people getting lenghty wait times to get their tractors. All I can say is that I guess we are lucky here in Ottawa. I walked in the dealer, picked a B2601+backhoe+thumb+loader. The sales guy told me the only thing that was missing was the backhoe but there were a few of them in Toronto. I got everything delivered 10days later.
This week I was placing an order for some fab work and the guy said a friend of his has a business building storage sheds. He told me his friend buys lumber by the train car load and cannot get pricing until the lumber is offloaded at their shop.A friend went by the Kubota dealer earlier this week, and told me that they were unloading at least a dozen BX23S tractors, and some larger tractors. It appears that the bigger tractor dealers are getting inventory, and the smaller dealers are still waiting. There is no doubt that production has been cut in half due to Covid.
I called to get a price on some lumber today, and they said that they couldn't deliver for a few days, because all the armed guards that they hired to protect the yard, don't want to go out with the trucks. They all have said that it is too risky to escort such a high dollar item. The armored cars can only handle the 8 footers.
