Deere salesmen are starting to look like a bunch of used car salesmen on this site. Trying every little tactic or gimmick to make their product look better than the rest. Get some class please!

I'm not going to throw the Deere guys under the bus for this as DeereMan85 said it best in his quote.

I guess you guys have never seen the guy pulling a Boeing 747 by himself ?

So that means that guy is stronger than that machine?

I don't think a Deere salesman posted this video link thread up.

If your referring to my comment about the anti-work valve nick name, understand I did not mention the brand of said nick name belonged to. However, I'm quite sure you can find threads on this site asking how to adjust said valve so the unit WILL at least preform. I did not initiate the comment about the anti-work valve either, just stated what one of the Deere guys nick named it. I don't follow how this has anything to do with the class of someone.

I could go on how one of the Deere guys nicked named a couple different brand track drive sprocket a Squirrel cage / hamster wheel and a couple different brand CTL idler pulleys Pizza cutters. Do these things offended you in some manor? They are not intended to, they are just intended for humor. I'm sure the competitors have nick names for things on the Deere machines and if I heard them I would more then likely laugh about them as well.

I have pushed tractor trailers around in the snow with my t200 bobcat. I have no idea how much weight they had in the trailer and obviously the tractor was spinning its wheels too. I just went behind the trailer and pick up a bit on it and away we went. I have done it numerous times because I plow at a large warehouse location. Never had a power problem doing it.

I remember when we had plastic engine side covers and the competitors would tell customers to come down here and tap on them...LOL...I would take them off on run over it with my truck and show them how the did not break.

I wouldn't say that nobody has done something like this. I know ASV even produced a video of their PT80 pulliing a chain and a scale against all of the other 80hp CTLs. I can't remember the exact numbers but I think the PT80 pulled the same amount as the 332 even though it weighed over 1500lbs less.
