    Let's briefly define equipment "Demonstration".

    For example, is it 3 minutes around the dealers lot, or??????????????

    CL--can it be defined in simple terms? I dunno.

    I have done the three minute thing and once or twice for 30 minutes?

    could it be best defined in terms of an "action" rather than a "time"?

    GEO :confused:

    My demos here have always consisted of actual field time. When I got our new Standers in June, we had a brand new(7 hrs) Stander to demo on all of our accounts for a little over a week.

    Field time is great--the only real way!

    You can never know 100% what a machine can do for you until you get to use it in "real world" conditions. Expo and GIE are two great places to demo anything under the sun. If you are privleged enough to have a great dealer to allow an extended demo, all the better. I like to know exactly how a machine will perform, save me time, and ultimately, make me more money before I open my checkbook. Increased production means fewer hours and fewer employees, which puts more money in my account each month.
