what is the deal on taskmaster tractors? they look to me like a dongfeng. Am I correct? Does anyone know about customer support from a parts standpoint? Around here I have only two options: John Deere or Taskmaster. Talk about two ends of the spectrum. There are other brands further away but because of my heavy community involvement and being in business I want to keep it local. I'm looking at the 26hp with a FEL for $14,900 CDN (roughly $11,400 US).

A number of tractors have been branded TaskMaster over the years, but I'm reasonably sure that you're correct in assuming the current batch are rebadged DFs. While having no personal experience with them, I haven't heard anything overly negative either. Like most recent Chinese tractors, performance and reliability usually parallel that of the selling dealer.

thanks for the offer Terry, but I think driving 30 hours away may not be keeping me local

I just saw an advertisement for the 4wd JD790 with JD419 FEL and LX5 rotary cutter for $15.2K, so it stands to reason you should be able to deal a 790/419 down under $14K

Hi Scott

I have never heard of such a beast unless like others have stated maybe an early venture before the current DF units.
I would think twice before bidding as for not much more you can get a newer China tractor maybe not with backhoe for that price but at least you could get parts and have a clue what you have purchased.
Have fun and hope you get what you need .....

Terry
