The appropriate quality of equipment and endowed after-sales service can only be expected in cooperation with authorized dealers.
On the sites of many stores and catalogs, you can read that they belong to official dealers of a particular brand of agricultural equipment. The status of an official dealer means transparency of cooperation with the brand, the absence of a long chain of resellers, but the main reason that sellers are trying to emphasize the status of their cooperation with the brand is the confirmation of the authenticity of the equipment and the warranty, post-warranty service that customers can count on.
However, not everyone who writes on their website that they are official suppliers is in reality. Therefore, we recommend checking with agrozilla.com/ru - this is a catalog of agricultural machinery, which contains not only the characteristics of the equipment, but also information about dealers.
You can check the status of the supplier in another way: by opening the manufacturer’s website and going to the “dealers” section. But such a section is not on every site. The popular John Deere brand in Russia provides comprehensive information about official representatives, but other Western manufacturers rarely provide a complete list of partners.

How to distinguish an official supplier from a reseller
If you want to get a high level of service and a quality guarantee, you need to contact official representatives. But how to understand if a company is exaggerating when it says that it purchases agricultural equipment directly from the manufacturer: John Deere, Berthoud, Kuhn, Horsch, New Holland? Take an interest in documents that would confirm the fact of cooperation, as well as pay attention to certification and guarantee papers. Authorized dealers provide a long warranty, and besides, they are often engaged in service maintenance of equipment. Another marker that distinguishes an authorized dealer from a reseller: the availability of spare parts. Companies that work directly with the manufacturer purchase not only machines, but also related products: spare parts, parts, electronic systems. In addition, the supply contract involves a certain format of service: after-sales service and the supply of spare parts are often a prerequisite for a company to be called an official dealer of a particular brand.
