John Deere program aims to ease parts stocking

August 22, 2013 -  By

John Deere is expanding its John Deere Parts OnSite program, a comprehensive parts stocking and replacement system that in some cases removes the task of restocking altogether.

Landscape contractors meet with their local John Deere dealer to implement the program and discuss the specific needs of their business. The program includes everything from belts to blades, to oil filters, spindles, deck wheels and PTO clutches and often places a John Deere parts cabinet at the contractor’s location. This allows maintenance crews to simply take the parts they need when they need them. The dealer will then restock the cabinet and work with the customer to account for and manage the inventory.

Dealers also may design the program to stock certain parts on crew trailers or trucks, which makes it even more convenient for the contractor. Payment and financing plans are also customizable.

“Parts OnSite is not a one-size-fits-all program,” said Jim Goldschmidt, parts product line manager for John Deere Turf & Utility. “By working closely with their John Deere dealer, contractors can have a parts management program that’s customized to their business needs.”
