Does anyone have comment on Mahindras? Heard they were made by same company that makes Massey Ferguson?

Sorry if this gets posted twice.
I believe Iseki makes the MF tractor (I think they are Japanese) The Mahindra appears to be Chinese from the pictures, but I can't be sure. A lot of dealers of off-brand tractors will tell you stories like that, but you need to research it. A lot of Kioti dealers will say that they use the same tooling as Kubota. (I guess 'cause they are both orange) The prices I have seen for Mahindra in the newspaper were only about $1000 less than comparable "name brand" tractors.If you stick with a name brand, it is likley to be more reliable and you have a much better chance of getting parts and service 20 years from now.

OK, first I am no expert at this and been awhile since I have looked at who manufactures what. First Massey is owned by AGCO which is an international corporation with tractors manufactured in many diffeent countries one of them India and that being the Mahindra. Wether a Mahindra is labeled MF and sent to the states, I do not know, I do know that we had one fellow from Pakistan who talked about Mahindra manufactured MF's in that country.
Sorry I couldn't be more help and likely only muddied the waters.

Take care....Jerri

Yes it is built to an IH tractor or at least the one version is. It matches up to the old B-414 IH tractor.

Kevin, the Mahindra compact line of tractors is manufactured in South Korea, I believe by the same company that makes the Long compacts. They are not Chinese. I've seen them and they look like a good machine; good fit and finish, metal parts not plastic, standard live pto and hydraulics, remote hydraulics...items considered options on many domestic brands.

Well I will never cease to be amazed and enough said. Go to the Mahindra USA site and click on "Their Story". They are an India company and mention nothing about any Korean connections. They do discuss connections with Steyr, Austrian I believe and AVL which maybe Korean, just don't know. Anyway have attached a link below.

Thanks for the help. In futher research I heard that MF and Mahindra are made by the same South Korea company, but have different engines. Look at a Mahindra
2810 and a MF 1233-4 they are very similar. What you think?

The Massey Ferguson 1200 series are made by Iseki in Japan. They are fine tractors. I feel that you get more tractor for less money in them. I have a MF 1250-4 and have put almost 600 hours on it in the last 13 months. It has been great and I would buy it again.
Mahinda's larger tractor are made to IH designs. The smaller ones are made in Korea. TAFT in India is the company that is now using old Massey Ferguson designs. TAFT has been making MF tractors under licence from Massey for over 30 years. Some of the licences have ran out and that is why they are now able to sell tractor with those designs in the USA.

Good morning to all... Smile This thread is so interesting that I took the liberty of sending a copy of it to Mahindra at their web site - after first abbreviating the names a bit. Maybe they can undo our confusion. Copies were sent to their President and to their Marketing Department. I thought that we ought to give them the opportunity to speak for themselves.
