 New Chinese Tractors Board

Guys,

I have added a new Chinese Tractors Board, please let me know if I have made any misstakes on brands that should have their own category, or if I have some none Chinese tractor stuff in the index. If you see a message that should be relisted to one of these forums let me know by sending me the message number.

Thanks,

Dennis TractorPoint

 New Chinese Tractors Board

Thankyou Dennis,the c.t.o.a. board has been ....up for about a year now,3 of them,no way to retrieve info,can't post pictures for help with repairs,all the info goes off the bottom of the board when its full,and repair type info is important for these tractors,[no its not that],its just that we don't have you neighbor hood johndeere garage to take it to,to get the fluids changed,we got to do minor stuff our selfs,and some major stuff,if the truth be told,so we need more info related to basic maintance and repairs then your big three owner. You will also find if people start using this instead of the c.t.o.a.,that you have a lot of first rate mechanics on their and could possably help out with other brands problems,a motor is a motor,hydro systems are hydro systems etc. I posted my experiences with this board on the c.t.o.a.,[one of the boards,the temp. one],all of which have been positive, I'm not a paying member yet but that could change,somebody said it cost 20 a year?I don't like the idea of paying to talk but......... Richard

In regards to your comment " I don't like paying to Talk, But..."
I am relatively new to this board and went through alot of the discussions as a non-member and don't feel that the money I spent to become a member was to talk with other tractor folks. It was to get advice and feedback from others who have been there. I would rather pay $20 here and save $200 going to the dealer for work on something that someone here has experienced and could help me repair myself, because I didn't think it.
To be honest, just the feedback I received on purchasing a CUT from this board, probably already saved me a couple thousand.
You sound as though you are already well versed in the tractor world and may not need the help, but for folks like me, I can't Thank Dennis enough for setting up this board.

Thank you Dennis! This should be a great opportunity for all of us to learn a lot more about Jinma's.......at least speaking for myself. I got my first look up close at a Jinma at Rural King yesterday. They had some Agpro Jinma 254's and a model I have not yet hear of. I didn't get a chance to actually demo one.......the store was pretty crowded. Hopefully we will see alot more Jinma owners posting in this section!

At the risk of ignoring a hint of sarcasim I may have detected, I'll stick my neck out and offer that Chinese tractors are arguably not GREAT, however they are pretty darn good, and the price really IS great!

Seriously, the quality of Chinese tractors, as with most other products from China, is improving as they continue to embrace the world market. That can only be a good thing overall. The factories are responsive to market input and make continuous improvements based on feedback provided.

THe tractors are typically very basic, not as well finished cosmetically and are most often purchased by DIY types who enjoy tinkering with basic, if somewhat outdated, technology. These tractors do work, and are excellent value especially for those who need a tractor only once or twice a week around their place. If you need hydrostat, cup holders and silky smooth paint than these are not for you. Some guys drive Hyundais, others drive Lexus believing you "get what you pay for".

Many dealers, such as myself, stock a good number of parts and as a result a network of parts support exists independent of any factory sponsored or controlled program. Comptetition exists so parts are much less expensive than brands who maintain monopolies on their parts.

These tractors are often as little as half the price of a "name brand" tractor. They may only be 75% as "good", but they are an excellent value for the right buyer.
China is well experienced at building Diesel engines and make more of them than anybody. The basic engineering on these tractors is for the most part sound, with a few minor problems resulting from less than attentive quality control. Once they have been tweeked by an attentive owner or experienced dealer, they can provide hundreds of troublfree hours. Chinese tractor owners do the majority of thier own repairs and utilize the internet a lot to share information. Like our tractors some of us may be a little rough around the edges, but we do have a good time with our toys and that is what it is all about!

Outdated technology?

If that was a detriment people wouldn't be buying Deere 790's and Kioti 1914's.

I like simple tractors.

Me too! That is what got me into this business, I started out serviceing and then selling machine tools, and have always tinkered on "collectible" cars, the chinese tractor business just seemed natural. Now we are handling everything from Farm Pro (Jinma), KAMA, Lenar, Long and Kioti! Sometimes your dreams unfold quicker than you can react! Truth is not everyone needs the same thing out of a tractor, now we have a little something for almost everyone. My only question, is how long till spring!

Kubotaguy, got a 224 Jinma(22 Hp 4wd)but not from Nortrac but same machine. Put together from a crate sale. Lots of power, simple to fix if needed(real simple technology). I've had NO problems. Best purchase I've ever made.Would go it again in a heartbeat.Even have a few friends with Kubotas and JD's that after trying out my 224 out now have a different opinion than they used to. They are saying, although the fit/finish leaves much to be desired they are impressed with how it works and performed. Just the truth, Harry Goodwrench

O.k.,now that we all know each other,lets just basicly,keep this board open for chinese tractor talk. And hold the bashing of said tractors down,any questions about these tractors will hopefully be answered in an honest way. I'll start with myself,I own a nortrac 254 tractor,they are made by jinma to northern tools specs,but they are a jinma,and basicaly the same as any other jinma tractor.I have 170 hrs so far in about 14 months,so far a few little things,[leaks,etc],have come up,northern has paid for all such parts,in an overnight way. SO so far so good. Richard Gauthier
