MSRP vs retail pricing. How do you know whats a good deal

I personally frequent internet message boards and Facebook groups for tractor owners and buyers, and one of the things I frequently see done is guys taking a look at what a company's MSRP is and the quote that they were given, and trying to work through that to figure out if they're getting a good deal or not. Now, frequently you'll see guys saying, "If you're buying tractor brand X and you're getting 12% off, you're doing pretty well." And from our seat, that seems a little silly sometimes.

Understanding 3pt hitch categories

So as you work through a tractor spec sheet, you're gonna notice a section on there that's gonna have the category of the three-point hitch of a tractor. What that category is telling you is the size implements that are really made for the back of that machine. Smaller category numbers, zero or one, are typically gonna be your smallest implements, and as you work in the larger categories, you're gonna go to bigger, heavier implements. And what that category is telling you is the size of the ball that's back here on the three-point hitch. And these run anywhere between about five-eighths pins up to full 2 inch pins for the largest tractors that we sell. And as you move up through these categories, the pins are gonna get bigger, and thus the implements are gonna get larger, and the linkage that's attached to the back of the tractor is gonna be heavier as well to support those bigger, heavier implements. So, the category of a three-point hitch is really very simply referring to the size of these balls on the back and the size of the pins that go into them.
