FARMONLINE | Right to repair topical at Tractor and Machinery Association of Australia conference

Australia's machinery manufacturers and dealers have heard straight from three agricultural businesses about why the right to repair debate matters.

Andrew Weidemann, Sam Monk, and Paul Rakovich spoke about the hotly debated topic during a panel session at the Tractor and Machinery Association of Australia conference in Melbourne on Wednesday.

The discussion was facilitated by Case IH Australia/New Zealand general manager Pete McCann.

Mr Weidemann, who farms at Rupanyup, Victoria, and also has a contracting business said it was important to have reliable equipment, especially in cases where you were working 24 hours a day.

"We are very lucky and fortunate that we've got good dealerships that we've bought the equipment from and their issue is they are struggling to get people to help them in the business," he said.

"One of the key attributes of a good dealership is having good service; service sells equipment every time."
