Tim Main operates a farm in Altona in conjunction with his brother and their father. Primary crops are corn and soybeans, he says, and a portion of their operation is devoted to finish pigs. The agriculture and real crop production is extremely seasonal, as he says, and the equipment must be in top condition when they need it. It's not only an expectation, but a requirement. He relies on Martin and the trained service team to make it so.
He says that the parts distribution aspect of the Martin operation is "second to none," adding that the company's ability to network their stores with their computer system is impressive. The idea that trained professionals are able to examine and diagnose needs before something breaks has given Main a comfort level that his machinery will "be able to harvest another season."
Service recommendations come with a timeline that allows users to plan ahead. Main notes that it's "a good feeling" to know that someone else looks at a piece of machinery and that "there are no glaring issues as you get ready to start the new year with it." He appreciates the ability to plan ahead for a needed part replacement; he also likes the choices he has to do the work himself or to allow the Martin team to complete the necessary repairs. He likes the company for other reasons as well, including benefits like the bulk oil program that he says has really streamlined his operation.
