Farmers created their own nightmare by being cheap and doing improper repairs on their equipment, which then lead to larger failures and wanted it covered under warranty. Farmers need their equipment during harvesting and will often rig something to get the harvest done and cause far more damage to the unit. John Deere may have gone overboard to protect the equipment from such repairs, however farmers brought this nightmare on themselves, somewhere there is a happy middle ground but both are going to fight for the extreme opposite. Also farmers are horrible about ignoring equipment in the off season and then worrying about it 30 seconds before harvest season. There is a lot going on that lead to this problem and why farmers are screaming the loudest about it.
