A new STEYR Selekt programme, which ensures the highest standards are met for approved used tractors held by the brand’s dealers, is being introduced to allow buyers of pre-owned machines to benefit from many of the same advantages enjoyed by customers of new STEYR models.
STEYR Selekt, which can be applied to all STEYR tractor models up to five years old and with a maximum 4,000 hours, is designed to ensure used machines prepared by the brand’s certified dealers meet the highest possible quality standards. At its heart is a 100-point check of key service and quality areas, performed by trained STEYR service technicians, plus a service history check.
Selekt units also undergo the next engine/transmission maintenance due, meaning customers of Stage V tractors do not need to return for further servicing until 600 engine/750 transmission hours have been completed. A voucher for a 10% next-maintenance parts discount is also included, as are the latest software upgrades and a dynamometer test to ensure performance meets the expected model standards. All parts used are genuine approved STEYR items.
Warranty and Premium Service support
The reassurance this provides is backed by a dealer-supported six-month breakdown warranty, which can be extended by further dealer warranty, while STEYR Selekt tractors are included in the Uptime programme for one year from the sale date. This means that, in the case of a breakdown, STEYR Premium Service will support the customer by interacting with the dealer to minimise downtime via complete process-tracking, from parts orders to technical requests and the repair follow-up. A STEYR Premium Service toll-free number can provide additional support if required.
Under STEYR Selekt, customers can also benefit from the same retail finance schemes enjoyed by buyers of new STEYR tractors. This is designed to help bring the premium quality and technology for which STEYR is renowned within the reach of a broader group of potential customers.
“STEYR tractors have long held a strong reputation for the highest levels of quality,” says Peter Friis, Head of STEYR Europe Commercial Operations.
“Now, via the Selekt programme, customers of pre-owned STEYR tractors can benefit from many of the same advantages as buyers of new models. This will bring them the all the benefits of STEYR quality and technology at a pre-owned price, but with the guaranteed premium standards expected of a new STEYR tractor. For customers, that means cost-planning benefits and reliability reassurance.”
