You have been an equipment dealer long enough to learn, your customers know the
difference between right and wrong. More importantly, they also know the difference
between right and almost right. Aftermarket service parts companies provide “almost
right.” The truth is, no aftermarket parts provider owns the original design, engineering
and test requirements needed to make meaningful, original quality claims.
To prove that idea, we recently performed a detailed physical study of aftermarket
blades very close to the OEM equivalent in appearance. The results revealed a story
the other guys don’t want us to tell. Five out of six blades evaluated fell short
of the original specification in one or more of the following key areas:
- Sail height
- Blade tip offset
- Tip to tip tracking
Most pros know bad blade geometry robs your cut quality, but the spec fall-out was
not limited to geometry. Looking even closer, we found that even the metallurgical
properties had been cheapened. A notable reduction in carbon content in competitive
blades meant more brittleness and premature wear. The deeper we looked, the more
we learned that aftermarket, will-fit blades appear to be right on the surface.
To get an Exmark quality of cut, almost right just isn’t right.
With Exmark Original Parts, you know that every blade, belt, and bearing you sell
or install has been qualified as the very best. That truth cannot be ignored. So,
since your customers matter, help them maintain their machines to the highest standards
with Exmark Original Parts.
