Abstract:
In peak periods, producers lose valuable time due to tractor breakdowns because of parts availability and service problems. A survey of 200 producers was conducted across the Province of Saskatchewan to determine problems associated with service and availability of parts. The results show that the dealerships were becoming more responsive to the producers needs. The number of repairs per year and the cost of dealership repairs were high since 14% of respondents were using private mechanics. The number of tractors per producer nearly doubled from the 1960's estimate of two. The hydraulic components were a concern since the cost of repairs was high, and breakdowns were more frequent.
