The Equipment Dealers Assn.’s Dealer-Manufacturer Relations Survey is a barometer of how manufacturers perform across 12 major criteria. The recipients of the Dealer’s Choice and Gold Awards were recently named and Rural Lifestyle Dealer is doing an in-depth analysis of the results in our summer issue.

If you’re a dealer, can I ask you to share your thoughts to these questions?

  • What is your take on this year’s survey and how your manufacturers performed?
  • How do you use the results of the survey? For instance, do they influence which lines you might consider taking on? Do you use the numbers in discussions with your manufacturers?

We’ll share comments in an upcoming issue of our eBrief Daily newsletter or print edition of the magazine.

You can email me at Thanks very much for taking the time!
