Fecon has recently updated its web site by adding a Dealership locator tool. This new functionality allows viewers to search for attachments, tractors, rental or any, within 10 to 250 miles from a desired zip code. The results are displayed on a map which shows locations of dealers who meet entered criteria, along with their contact information.
