OEM Vs Aftermarket Parts - What's best for your tractor?

Whether you own a tractor for work or for fun, to keep your tractor in prime condition you know it's inevitable at some point you will have to replace some parts. But how do you decide what's best for your tractor - should you choose OEM or aftermarket parts?

What are 'aftermarket' parts?

An 'aftermarket' is the secondary market of the agri parts industry concerned with the manufacturing, distribution and retailing of parts for a tractor that are not sourced from the original manufacturer. OEM parts are made by, and for the manufacturer.  Aftermarket parts are replacement parts that are designed to match the original but are not made by the manufacturer of a tractor.






OEM parts will usually come in one type, which makes it easy to identify your part.


OEM parts are often more expensive than aftermarket parts.


OEM parts are sold via the original manufacturer or selected dealers and will be guaranteed to meet a set standard.


OEM parts are sold through limited suppliers.


OEM parts generally have a warranty.





Aftermarket parts can be considerably cheaper than OEM parts. 


With an unknown brand of aftermarket parts you cannot be confident of the quality. Some aftermarket parts may use lower-quality materials. Choose an aftermarket supplier that is well know and trusted with good reviews from independent sources (e.g. Google, Trustpilot).


The aftermarket parts industry offers a great deal of choice so you can shop around for the best quality and price.


Too much choice can make it difficult to identify the part you want and find a like for like alternative.


Reputable aftermarket parts suppliers will offer a warranty.


Aftermarket parts can not only match the quality of their OEM equivalent, they can often be superior.
