Sec. § 57.301
Coerced Orders, Deliveries, or Refusals to Purchase


A supplier may not coerce, compel, or require a dealer to accept delivery of equipment or a repair part that has not been voluntarily ordered by the dealer, unless:


the equipment or repair part is a safety feature required by the supplier or applicable law; or


the dealer is otherwise required by applicable law to accept the delivery.


A supplier may not coerce a dealer to refuse purchase of equipment manufactured by another supplier.


It shall not be considered a violation of this section if the supplier requires a dealer to have or provide separate facilities, financial statements, or sales staff for major competing product lines if the supplier gives the dealer at least three years’ notice of such a requirement.
