Machinery Scope is proud to offer risk management solutions for your Ag equipment investments. One of your most popular services we offer is our extended service plans (A.K.A. extended warranties). As popular as they are we receive a lot of questions about them, so here is your one stop shop for everything warranty!
What type of equipment qualifies?
- Compact and utility tractors
- Row crop tractors
- 4wd tractors
- Skid steers
- Forage harvesters
What manufacturers are covered?
We warranty most major manufactures, including John Deere, Case IH, New Holland, Massey Ferguson, Challenger, Versatile, and many more.
How old can my equipment be?
We have coverage options that can be extended on equipment up to 10 years old and with less than 5,000 hours.
Does it matter if I am the buyer or seller?
No, either can purchase an extended warranty, as it adds value to the equipment and benefits both parties.
Does the policy transfer if I sell it?
Yes, the policy follows the covered equipment, not the owner of the policy.
Do I always need an inspection to get a warranty?
Not always. Some coverage options do not require an inspection, and some do. An easy way to know, is if the equipment is over 5 years old an inspection is required to be eligible, while equipment less than 5 years old can be inspected and often times can lower your premium.
What advantages are there to having an inspection done?
Inspections are a great tool. They limit your risk by having an experienced service mechanic take a look at the equipment before you buy. We have faith in our service techs. If they are confident in your equipment, we are too, and we can give you the best premiums available. Check out our Inspection FAQ for more information!
Are there multiple deductible levels?
Yes, depending on the level of coverage and the program that you enroll through, deductibles range from $0 to $500. We want to give you options that work for you, so whether you choose a lower premium/higher deductible plan or you want to completely fix your costs and choose a $0 deductible, that choice is up to you!
What is the difference between Powertrain, Powertrain + Hydraulic, and Platform coverage?
Parts covered is the main difference, click this link to see a breakdown of what is covered by each level of protection.
Can I get a warranty from my local dealer?
We are always adding new dealerships to our network. If you would like to find out if your local dealership is part of our network, send us an email and we will look them up. If your dealer is not part of our network and you think they should be, make sure you tell them about us!
Where can I take my equipment if I have a claim?
Any local OEM dealer can service your equipment. Even if you buy a red tractor from a green dealer, you can have it serviced at your local red dealer.
What types of parts are used to make repairs?
We prefer that OEM parts be used for all repairs, but we will make exceptions as long as we are contacted prior to installation and a valid reason is given.
How long is my warranty good for?
It depends. If your equipment qualifies for protection under “New” coverage, it can be extended out to 60 months from the original purchase of the machine. If it does not qualify as “New,” we have options that will cover equipment for as little as 6 months and up to two years old.
How much does it cost?
It depends. If we could tell you we would, and in the future we hope to, but right now there are too many variables that have to be calculated to give you a definitive pricing structure. We strive to bring you value without sacrificing quality. One way we do this is by taking into account as many variables as possible including the age, the type of use, make, model, and the number of hours on the equipment. Having as much information as possible will give us a good place to start. If you have questions or need a quote, the best way to connect with us is to fill out our online form. We will get back to you ASAP!
What are the benefits of having a warranty?
There are numerous reasons why having warranty makes sense for your operation including mitigating risk, protecting your bottom line, and adding value to your equipment, just to name a few!
