The introduced Job Ready™ program from Vermeer provides a new solution for the pre-owned equipment market. Job Ready equipment receives a detailed inspection from a Vermeer technician, and comes with comprehensive parts and labor coverage for major components.

“We’re pleased to offer a program that provides farmers and ranchers confidence that the pre-owned machine will be productive long after the initial purchase,” explains Bob Martin, Vermeer Solutions Manager.“This type of coverage is standard with a new model purchase, but is not easily found in the pre-owned market.”

Job Ready service contracts cover parts and labor for major components for 12-months or 10,000 bales from the date of purchase – whichever occurs first. Currently, the Job Ready program is available on select baler models that fall within a 7-year model range and have baled less than 20,000 bales.

“This isn’t about a full bumper-to-bumper warranty,” says Martin. “It’s about making sure that the failure of a significant item during the contract period won’t add financial stress to the equipment owner and it’s about providing reassurance that they can bring their machine to any Vermeer dealer for a covered repair.”

Prospective buyers can find Job Ready equipment listings on their website, a marketplace dedicated to Vermeer dealer inventory listings and providing the assurance of a vendor with the experience and knowledge to support a used equipment transaction fully.

“There are lots of places to buy used equipment, but few can offer the knowledge, experience and reputation of the Vermeer dealer network,”continues Martin.
