Usual question

Looking at a machine advertised by this firm in Scotland, has anyone had dealings with this firm good, bad or otherwise?

Replies via PM if preferred

Thanks
 
Haven't we been down this road before and ended up talking about 2 Gordon's??
From the other thread of the same name in October 2013:
Gordons is a main Class dealer. http://www.gordons.claas-dealer.co.uk/

Gordon Agri is not a main dealer. http://www.gordonagri.co.uk/index.php?route=common/hom

Two totally different companies.

Another thread of the same era, there are more quotes:
basically the tractor is more or less just welded together and never should have been sold, it is scrap. We bought it from Gordon Agri in Scotland and after 2 days it started giving trouble but they will have nothing to do with it!

Gordon Agri tend to buy at Lanark paint up and move on
Not to say that all there tractors are lemons but you can guess why most tractors go to machinery auction

Thanks guys, think I'll be avoiding this one. The benefit of TFF!

I did actually search TFF for this company prior to posting, but surprisingly no results came up.

Think I posted this on the other thread.
Without any prior Knowledge I'd probably buy something of Gordon agri. All the kit seems similar 100hp semi classics generally with loaders. Looks tidy and is always well presented.

Price is largely irrelevant. If something is tidy and well presented you can pretty much ask anything on older gear.
The problem comes when it doesn't work and the customer complains
Well thinking about it that is a fair point, paying a couple of grand too much for a nice tidy well looked after classic is probably actually cheap compared to buying a lemon at what would appear a good price

Still though, it's amazing just how much people value the look of an item over another, there is plenty of stuff out there that is perfectly straight and serviceable and will always be overlooked compared to the sprayed up one.

Presentation is one thing, but it actually is possible to polish a turd.
