    Does the computer chips shortage impact the price of the tractors?

    I really didn't get that far. It was december build dates. Or were into January 2022. Pete's are supposedly easier to get , but I didn't call pete.

    That depends on the dealers I guess. It impacts the supply of tractors one way or another, either because there's fewer tractors built, or fewer computers made for replacement parts, which would theoretically nudge x% of people toward buying new. Whether the dealers allow the supply to affect their pricing is up to them. And even if it doesn't affect the actual sticker price, it can still affect how far they're willing to drop their drawers.
