Have no idea what you are talking about. These were light angle iron frames that formed a box over the lawn mower/tractors, I'm guessing covered with a plastic film. Never saw them arrive, only saw the frames sitting in the field behind his business. Hunter's would deck them for stands.
If Deere wanted these shipped back, I'd be surprised. The cost of freight would be far greater than the value of the frames.

Must be different than the shipping "crates" they're using now. The ones they use now are probably near a couple hundred pounds. Meant to be picked up with a fork lift. The base is the part that is quite heavy. The super-structure is light weight angle iron that collapses after the tractor is unloaded. That part just pins together.

Don't know about that, he sold the business over ten years ago to the local Cat dealer and the L & G portion didn't go with it. The business was primarily a construction rental business, the L & G was a sideline orginally taken as a bit of a favor to the district J D rep. There was no coverage in the area, and he had been a J D Industrial dealer from the early sixties to the late seventies then sold that business to retire. Buyer (big regional) went bankrupt, defaulted on the note to him, so he had to start again. So they talked him into taking the L & G line with the new (rental) company.
Can't ask him about the return issue, he passed away a year after he sold the business.
