Why would you pay to look at and demo there stuff they should bring it to you if they want you to buy it. Sounds like a marketing trick, let me guess they throw in a free lunch and that is supposed to make it worth it? Haha no thanks JD!

What's the catch? For me, I'd just drive but I'm close. I can't see them flyin' every Tom Dick or Harry to their plant for lunch and a lap around in the new 900 series. Now, if you're in the market for a piece of farm equipment ($100+) I could see it, but not for us little guys.

really don't know what the catch is, dealer called me up and asked if I wanted to go, said there was a seat open, I said what the hell, not much going on now any way, so thought I'd go.
