      trusted_customer_gold Gold: An active tractorpool trader for more than ten years


  • tractorpool is monitoring the activities of its advertisers to ensure high-quality trading. Yet, should there still be any reason for complaint, we will immediately initiate an extra review.
  • The quality seal serves merely as a guideline and is not a guarantee.
  • It refers only to the tractorpool trading site.

8. What does the symbol 'P' in an advert mean? What is the park ground and how is it managed?

  • The park ground presents a shortlist of machines that are of interest to you and that are marked for monitoring. To 'earmark' a machine, click the machine in question and then click the small 'P' in detail view.
  • The park ground will be available only on that PC on which it was created.
  • The system will instantly prompt whenever the price of the 'earmarked' machine changes.
  • Text fields are available to add comments to any machine in the park ground.

9. What is the price search function and what are its benefits?

  • The tractorpool price search function serves as an additional guideline for pricing a machine. It helps dealers when trading in used machinery and farmers selling a machine.
  • To make this function more powerful, we include all prices of machines that were traded at tractorpool in the past in addition to those prices and machines that are currently on sale. As a result, users benefit from a significantly larger and more powerful database to set the price for a machine.
  • Each entry shows the date when the machine was first posted and whether the machine is/was traded by a dealer.

10. Can I export data from my database into tractorpool?

  • We offer all dealers a data communication service, which allows you to transfer machine data conveniently from your system to tractorpool without having to enter data twice. As usual, you will enter and update all machine data on your own system and off-line. After that you will transmit the information to tractorpool.
  • The data transfer is made by help of a special file, which is generated by your warehousing system and a special export function. All data warehousing systems offer such a feature. Your software provider will be able to answer your specific questions.
  • If you are interested in such a tractorpool interface, e-mail us a test data file from your warehousing system to check system compatibilities. Please send this file to datenaustausch@traktorpool.de. At this e-mail address you can also obtain further information on how to set up such an interface.

11. What options are available to distinguish and promote my machine?

  • You can choose from two extra options to make your advert more attractive:
  1. Top Advert: Book this option to rank your machine at the top of the match list.
  2. Highlighted Advert: Book this option to highlight your machine in the match list.

12. How to use RSS Feeds

    • Like a news ticker, RSS Feeds are offered by websites as a service to keep visitors updated about new or changed information on websites. It's convenient since you don't have to visit the website itself to see the latest information.
    • RSS Feeds contain chronologically listed content such as headlines or news, which themselves link to the main website. If an entry catches your eye, you can read the full text simply by following the link to the original website. Feeds are automatically updated as content changes.
    • You can access RSS Feeds through your browser (e. g. Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer) or download special programs (so called 'feed readers') to read all your feeds in one place. Some E-Mail programs also offer this functionality (e. g. Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird).
