  4. Limitations on Warranty Coverage:
    Coverage under this warranty will be effective only when a copy of the original invoice, showing the date and location of purchase, accompanies any claim for warranty.

    Warrantor has no liability whatsoever and this warranty is null and void if any Demco Agricultural Equipment has been subjected to neglect, negligence, misuse, accident or operated in any way contrary to the operating and maintenance instructions as specified in the Demco Owner’s Manual for that model. This warranty does not cover any Agricultural Equipment that has been altered or modified so as to affect adversely the Agricultural Equipment’s operation, performance or durability, or that has been altered or modified to change the intended use of the Agricultural Equipment.

    In addition, the warranty does not extend to repairs made necessary by normal use or by the use of parts, accessories or other equipment which in the sole judgment of Warrantor, are either incompatible with the Demco Agricultural Equipment, or adversely affect its operation, performance or durability. This warranty does not cover:

    1) Normal wear and tear
    2) Road film or gravel damage to paint
    3) Paint
    4) Rust damage

    The only warranty provided for this product is the limited warranty contained in paragraph 1 above. All implied warranties are expressly excluded, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, implied warranties of fitness for a particular purpose, and any implied warranties arising from course of dealing or usage of trade. There are no warranties that extend beyond the description on the face of this warranty.

    Some states do not allow limitations on implied warranties and this limitation may not apply to you.
