 IND vs. compact tractor

I don't exactly know want you mean by a deere industrial machine but thats not what we were comparing. We were comparing compacts. I found a used JD 870 with 400 hrs. so we went down to the kubota dealers and compared it with a L2500 and B2400. There was no comparison. The deere was a much heavier machine--I think about 800lbs. worth and that was obvious in the axels and castings and mounts. Much thicker everywhere. Go see for yourself. A simple look underneath will reveal what I am talking about. Even the 4000 series which I have never seen states in the literature that they are way heavier than the equilavent kubota. I feel they are both equal tractors as far as quality. But my contractor friend influenced me to get the deere over the kubota because of the heavier wheight/contruction.

 Any info on Long and TAFE tractors?

A dealer who was trying to sell me one told me that the TAFE is made in India and he said that except for the injection system (he said TAFE uses Bosch) they are identical to a MF.

 Oil Choices Recommendations

11 years ago, FRAM used to be a good filter. Now FRAm puts money in their advertising instead of their filter.

Go to the auto parts stores in your area and get different brands and cut them apart. See which iis the best brand.

 Any info on Long and TAFE tractors?

Long currently sells three lines of tractors. The "original" line is builtin Romania by UTB. It is basically a Fiat design, updated by Long for the US market.This line has been imported since the mid '70s or so. They have lately picked upthe Farmtrac line. This is a Ford Design built in India, if I'm not mistaken. They most recentaddition is the Farmhand line (I may not have the name just right). This is a compact tractorbuilt in Korea using a Mitsubishi 4 cylinder engine. This is one of best equipped compacts I've seen. It comes standard with remote outlets and live PTO. The castings are also very beefy. The RomanianLong tractor is fine, if you know a few quirks. First, never leave the PTO clutch engaged. It's like standing on the foot cluth continuously. The thrust load on the crank is tremendous, and will cause thrustbearing failure, wrecking the block. The fuel injection systems are not always the best. However, theycan be rebuilt with real CAV parts, curing all problems. They will leak some oil. It's a combination of rough machined surfaces and poor quality gasket materials. Long has fixed the major leaks with improved (non-Romanian) seals. As far as the rest go, buy a quart of oil once in awile. It's a lot easier than trying to fix them all. All in all, not a bad machine. By the way, if you know of any used units for sale, let me know. I'm looking for one. Can you get more of a reccommendation than that?Hope the info helps.John

 Any info on Long and TAFE tractors?

I have a 560 long that I am in the process of doing a resurface to one of the heads. I am in the process of finding information now. The is a long dealer in South Carolina, Midway Equipment, I found on Yahoo. There is also a dealer here in Hanford, California that I talked to today that used to sell Long tractors and he is looking to see where he can get parts for me. The tractor seems to be a good tractor, I paid $1700.00 for mine and it has standard bolts and nuts so it is easy to work on. Good Luck,Richard
