I am trying to do some research on compact tractors. I now know that I will probably not purchase a "grey" tractor. I am very interested in buying a smaller 20-25hp tractor for my property. I know that I do not want to spend the $15K for a John Deere even though I do know they are great tractors but as much as I will be using it, it will not pay for itself. I have seen these Nortrac's new for $9900 witth loader and gannon. Is it a good option? Does anyone have any information or real experience on the NorTrac?

All I know is that you better run it through its paces before the 6 month warranty expires. My jd has a 2 yr warranty and I KNOW I can get parts AND service!!! Ever thought of buying a good trade in on one of the big three ??? A lump sum or three big payments sound nice but a resonable payment will leave you some funds to buy implements, say what you will but you will always look for more.

Nortrac is a Jinma tractor. You will find allot of info on Jinma tractor, at my website below. They are not JDs at much lower prices. They do offer allot of value to someone that can turn their own wrenches, if need be. If you are close to a Nortrac dealer, you can opt for longer than 6 month warrantee. A Nortrac rep has been active on the CTOA board, for some time. Also, they have just started some quarterly online newsletters.

There are a couple of smaller Jinma dealers that are in AZ. See the dealer list on my site.

Thanks for the info. I have been around heavy equipment for 10 years and we always have used Caterpillar machinery due to the fact that they are the best along with a great supply of parts and service. I normally laugh when I see these Japanese types of heavy equipment on a site. After my research it sounds like I should just bite the bullet and get a John Deere or New Holland, what is a few thousand more when it should last a lifetime. Thanks again.

Thanks. Are the parts easy to get your hands on? I live in AZ and the only dealers around here I am familiar with are JD, Ford, New Holland, Kubota. I can wrench with the best but if I can't get parts that is what scares me. Not that I want to be wrenching all of the time but when parts break or go bad I can do the repairs.

Thanks for the advise. I just found a Kioti dealer 40 miles from Prescott. They seem to be nice tractors. I will check them out.

Ricker,
Kioti has 3 distribution centers in the USA that I know of. Ca, TX, and NC. Parts stocks seem good, with as good of a turnaround as the major brands.

disclaimer. No business association with Kioti tractors.
Actually I have no business associations with any tractor companies other than to buy stuff from them.

I mentioned this in another post. I would check out all the Korean tractors. Century-Branson (twins except for loaders) Kioti and Mahindra. My local Century dealer had a 30HP 12x12 with R4 tires for $13,500. Anything decent used will cost more than that and you get a warranty with new. Kioti's are great in the 35 HP up range (except for the new CK20) Mahindra uses a Kioti engine and is a strong competitor. I personally don't like the loader as well as the loader and bucket are not quick attach. JMHO
