case vs macdon flexdrapers (rant)
Most people know that macdon builds case's drapers and flex drapers and they are supposed to be identical other than the red paint vs black. But I just found out that even if macdon decides an update is supposed to be done on its headers, that the almighty case engineers have to approve the updates before case headers can be updated, and in talking with a service manager for case, it has happened more than once where case engineers have not approved the update or modified it from what macdon engineers deemed necessary. In addition if case does not approve the update if you ask the case dealer to search for any updates that need to be done, it will not show up, and you may know nothing about it, and because case serial numbers are different than macdons you can not just search macdons database unless you can find a macdon serial number that would be similar in date range to yours. So your neighbour may get an update on the identical header but you may not just because you have case, nice!!
I find this to be a bad joke, case feels macdons products are good enough to have case paint on, but then decide they know more than the engineers that design and build the product as to what should be updated.
does anybody else feel this is absolute bull, I am getting tired of penny pinching companies when it is at the expense of their customers and while the company is generating massive profits. Come on case if macdon product is what you want to sell with your paint on it then support the macdon engineers recommendations, you obviously weren't able to build as good of one cost effectively yourself so don't pretend you know better on what needs fixed or updated.
Bottom line if you are buying new and for the same price your can get a macdon i would suggest, not buying case because there is no upside only downside, unless you really really want a red side panel.
