Thought some of you who are considering buying an Ollie or taking a factory tour, but haven't, might get a kick out of this pic I took in Hohenwald, at the OTT factory-showroom. Why, yes, it's an entire field of Ollies! Taken from across the lot from the OTT factory-showroom. Just thought it was kinda cool.

Cool, I count 11 but were there more to the right? When we collected “Mouse” in May 2017 there were just 4, parked on a scruffy gravel back lot....

That looks like demand is slowing or price is too high for market...both maybe

Or they are all sold units waiting for pickup. If the build time is into the next year I’m sure the waiting customers would have snatched all of those up already.

In this day and age I have a hard time believing folks.....dealer In particularly ....lol

Could be also service vehicles...or maybe they are finished but waiting on a common part  coming from china....the stopper in the canal a while back may have back logged alot of parts....

There were more to the right and maybe a few around the corner on that side.

Two weeks output and either service or waiting for a buyer pickup.  Demand definitely not decreasing yet with orders placed now being delivered in Feb 2022. 

Yes. And remember the weather last January and February? A number of people had to postpone pickups late Jan/February.

When I was there for delivery, there were 19, all sold waiting for pickup. Mine was ready, on the lot, for more than 2 weeks prior to my delivery date.

Last fall I observed similar - most were sold awaiting pick-up, the rest  - service related. 

It is all a matter of perspective - I get a kick out of the Oliver business model - they get paid upfront for most  -if not all of the material and process costs, and have a very elastic pricing scheme. They raise prices, the wait list grows..... material planning - Covid excepted - is simple. Every manufacturer would love the model.

As for units on site - a place I once worked built 1000 + units a day, shipped that on most days, and worked to a finished,  but not shipped float of less than 20 - very hard to do.

Now - I also did some work for another Asian manufacturer - who ended up with 18,000 units on site - not shippable - it was an amazing experience. 

Oliver with 20 or so, ha.
