§

4077a. Prohibited acts

No supplier

shall:

(1) coerce any

dealer to accept delivery of any equipment, parts, or accessories therefor,

which such dealer has not voluntarily ordered, except that a supplier may

require a dealer to accept delivery of equipment, parts or accessories that are

necessary to maintain equipment generally sold in the dealer's area of

responsibility, and a supplier may require a dealer to accept delivery of

safety-related equipment, parts, or accessories pertinent to equipment

generally sold in the dealer's area of responsibility;

(2) condition

the sale of any equipment on a requirement that the dealer also purchase any

other goods or services, but nothing contained in this chapter shall prevent

the supplier from requiring the dealer to purchase all parts reasonably

necessary to maintain the quality of operation in the field of any equipment

used in the trade area;

(3) coerce any

dealer into a refusal to purchase the equipment manufactured by another

supplier; or

(4) discriminate

in the prices charged for equipment of like grade and quality sold by the

supplier to similarly situated dealers, but nothing contained in this chapter

shall prevent differentials which make only due allowance for a difference in

the cost of manufacture, sale, or delivery resulting from the differing methods

or quantities in which such equipment is sold or delivered by the supplier.
