Dealers have the option to charge customers 4% of the equipment contract sale for set-up plus a delivery fee of $1.80 per loaded mile for golf products only (reel mowers-G10, special application mowers-G15, special application vehicles-G20, aeration-G25 and debris maintenance-G30). The 4% set-up is in lieu of any/all Government Sales reimbursement for set-up. Miles are to be calculated using mapquest.com.

Allowed. The John Deere Municipal Lease or a third party type municipal lease (if applicable) where the customer makes payments and then owns the equipment at the end of the term is allowed.

The low interest rate, low cost John Deere Municipal Lease, is a type of financing that is specifically designed for qualified state, government, and educational entities which allow full ownership at the end of the lease term.

Allowed. A True Lease/Operating Lease where the customer makes payments and the equipment is returned to the dealer at the end of the term is allowed on this contract.

Multiple unit discounts are permitted. The contract discount plus the multiple unit discount equals the total discount. Discounts are based on the following schedule:

Quantity Additional Discount
3-4 1%
5-6 2%
7-8 3%
9 units or more 4%

Sales of 3 or more like self-propelled products sold on the same purchase order are eligible for the multi-unit discount. Self-propelled products, with the exception of our utility vehicles, must be listed in the same tabbed price book section.  Compatible implements sold with such products also qualify for the multi-unit discount, but do not count as a unit.

Frontier Equipment is excluded from the Multiple Unit Discount.

Allowed. Non-contract equipment may only be sold in connection with the sale of a contract item. Items must be clearly labeled on the purchase order or quote as Non-Contract. The total cost of the non-contract equipment must be less than 25% of the total cost of the contract item (including options and attachments).  John Deere extended warranties (commercial) may also be sold.

Example – If an item on contract has a total cost of $100,000 (which includes all options and accessories which are also on contract), then the non-contract equipment (and its non-contract accessories) must be less than $25,000. Non-contract items are John Deere manufactured Order Zone products, implements, attachments, accessories, parts or bundles that are not currently on contract but are requested by the customer to complete the purchase of John Deere equipment awarded on contract.

Not allowed on this contract.

Any orders received directly from Member entities should be immediately faxed (1-800-211-5454) to the Cooperative. If by chance an order is sent directly and has been unintentionally processed, please fax it to the Cooperative and note it as RECORD ONLY to prevent duplication.
