Textron is a defense contractor, why mess around with the public on a 22K machine when they can add a turret and other kewl gadgets to it and sell it to the military for 100K.. They also own Howe & Howe, they buy the assembly line not the low paying customer base.That makes sense because I tried to give the dealer money to reserve a machine and they wouldn't take it. I'll say that again. A dealer wouldn't take my money.
I had my wife call around and she found the dealer in Butte MT just got a new 2022.
There were a couple in California but they marked them up to almost $30,000.
If there's demand for these machines, why aren't they cranking them out?
I don't understand any of this.
