It has been a great product line for us,” Ron says. If you’re looking for a smaller tractor, Cox has you covered there too. Ron was a loyal and productive John Deere dealer for 33 years before a sweeping corporate change eliminated most small dealers across the country about five years ago. That’s when he found Yanmar and Zetor tractors, superior products with great pricing. “Yanmar tractors are very high-quality machines with fiveyear warranties, very comparable to John Deere,” Ron says.”The only thing they don’t have that Deere has is the brand recognition.” In fact, Yanmar, an American company, has been in business for more than 100 years, about as long as John Deere has been producing tractors. All Yanmar tractors are assembled in Adairsville, Georgia, just north of Atlanta. Zetor is one of the best known tractor manufacturers in Europe. More than a million Zetor tractors are in use in almost 100 countries around the world. Ron’s factory trained technicians can quickly and efficiently service any of the vehicles or equipment they carry. Along with their very competitive prices, Cox Automotive offers financing on most of the products they carry. The company has also offered towing services for more than 50 years.
