Ash Phrmc 125 Our dealers join us in making this frank report to THE FARMERS OF AMERICA JKTFUNATIONAT. Harvester is g«t- X tinj? back into production with all possible apeed. Extra shifts are being employed wherever conditions permit, to try to overcome the production IOKSCK of the recent strike. Everything is being done to get parts and machines to you. While we and our dealers would like to tell you that this means an immediate end to the shortage of service parts and machines, it is more accurate to s»y that it means the beginning of the end of it. If illness or bad weather delays you. seriously in the Spring, you know how much it throws you off your schedule. The strike has thrown our schedules off balance, too. There are many "chores" we must do before new machines reach you. Material shortages The preliminary chores of getting our plants back into shape for full productlonarefin- 'ished. But disturbances in other industries and :_ resulting material shortages may • affect our "-plans, i Light gauge \ steel sheets, brass and copper, fractional horse power motors, And many other items are all very nhort. The coal situation may also procc serious — we hope not. Refilling the well Both our dealers and our brfjiches have run dry on parts and new machines. So the biggest chore is lo Ret their working stocks hack to normal. H will take time to fill the pipeline to dealers—just as it takes time for you to refill a well or cistern after it has run dry. Stock and display rooms of our dealers represent not one, but ten thousand reservoirs which must r>e refilled. Thn most heroic pro- duction efforts will mean that your local dealer can expect only u small number of parts and machines at a time. Since we must play fnir with all our customers, there will be a sprinkle of parts and machines all ovor the cuun- try—not a downpour in any one stction. You will he glad to know* that all repair parts production schedules arc far beyond normal. No hoarding You may be sure, that every machine will be shipped to dealers as soon as completed. 1 . We do not and will not hold machines off the market. At the start of the strike we had on hand at all our factories and branches just 837 tractors of all kinds—less than two days' production—and405of these were not completed. Many of those on hand had one or inore important parts missing—principally radiator cores. Most of the rest represented the normal daily . "float" 'between the'end of the assembly line and the shipping ..platform.' .Naturally no tractors were made during the strike. What dealers may have for you Wecanreport to you that our current production on TRACTORS is good and we are shipping at a normal rnte. Even so, there will not he enough to po around. The situation on PLOWS INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER Distributed United Liquo CHICK THEATRE "Where Happiness Costs So Little" Week Daya: BUrte »t 7 p. •. c nnd DISK HARPOWS is reasonably good. On COMBINES, ' MOWERS,HAY RAKES,ONE- MAN HAY BALERS, CORN PICKERS and many other items, our schedules have been serin-sly disrupled. We must in furness say that many of our customers are likely to be disappointed on delivery of these machines. On MILKING MACHINES, STA- TIONARYENGINES.andsome : , other small units we arc hopeful of making practically normal delivery. We know you will understand the rcnsons why your dealer can- . not £11 your orders overnight. Ho would like to give you the kind of delivery on machine;' you would like to gel, hut hi! situBlion is a difficult one and not of his own making. Ha is doing the best he can. • No cuttU::-; corners on quality There is one thing you can be absolutely certain about: We will NOT cut corners on quality in order to 'increase production, in this kmcr- gc/u> For venrs we h!i\e said "QUALITY IS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR BUSINESS." Today we say it—and mean it—as much as ever. Wo know you need new machines—and need them badly. But we believe it will pay you to wait just a little while longer if you cannot get all you want immediately. By waiting you can be sure your new equipment will have the quality so rightly associated with INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER forso many years.
