Last year, the state legislature of Wyoming started considering Right to Repair legislation for farm equipment. But we need your help to get the bill passed.
The Right to Repair Farm Equipment Act is simple. It requires equipment manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair businesses with access to service information and reasonably priced replacement parts. So you can fix your equipment by yourself or at a repair shop of your choice.
Manufacturers like John Deere don’t like that idea. When your tractor breaks, they want to be the only ones who can fix it. And they get to charge whatever price they feel like for parts and service.
It’s your tractor. You bought it. You own it. You shouldn’t have to beg the manufacturer for permission to fix it. In fact, we think that the bill should cover more than just farm equipment. An even better bill would cover all digital equipment—like computers, mobile phones, cameras, and appliances. We should have the right to repair every single thing we own.
If you want to protect your right to repair farm equipment, write a letter to your state legislator and say so. And if you think the 2017 bill have gone even farther and should be amended to include all types of digital equipment—tell your representative in the Wyoming state legislature that repair should be available to everyone, for all kinds of digital equipment.
It’s time to fight for your right to repair and to defend local repair jobs—the corner mechanics that keep getting squeezed out. Tell your rep you support the Right to Repair Farm Equipment Act.

Right to Repair is simple. It requires manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair businesses with fair access to service information and affordable replacement parts. So you can fix the stuff you own quickly—and get back on with your life.
Well, manufacturers like John Deere and Apple don’t like the idea. When your tractor breaks or your cell phone stops working, they want to be the only people who can fix it. And they get to set whatever prices they want for parts and service.
Nope! We already have right to repair for cars—that’s why you can take your Ford into a local mechanic. They have all the same software diagnostics and service manuals that the dealerships have. This is the result of decades of auto Right to Repair legislation—laws that have been a resounding success.
It’s time to fight for your right to repair and defend local repair jobs—the corner mom-and-pop repair shops that keep getting squeezed out. Write or call your legislator. Tell them you support the Fair Repair Act. Tell them that you believe repair should be fair, affordable, and accessible. Stand up for your right to repair in Wyoming!
