Hello Moses
we work here in france a lot with the CUMA ( commom utilisation materiel agricole)
that means a groupe of farmers are buying a tractor with a loan of a bank after paying some money which is putting in a fund for the garantee, f.e. 1 procent of the prize.
all the farmers are owners, but not drivers, otherwise you have f.e. 10 owners, 10 different
drivers for the tractor which is not good at all.
i think the owners have to get somebody who is driving the tractor he is looking after the tractor plus machines he is responsible.
maybe it needs more discussion.
regards marcel de haas
