What size? The CUTs are Korean (LG), the larger line is Indian (Escort). I read where the 7 series will be Italian (SAME) next year. At least I "think" SAME is Italian.

The Escort Group built tractors for Ford in the far east. With the NH-IH-Ford-Case-Fait merger something had to give to avoid the combines acts in the US and in Europe. Part of the IH was sold in Europe and is now building as McCormick. The Ford Genesis line was sold and is now Bulher with Versitile. Part of the old IH alliance in India is now Mahindra. The Escort group bought Long which was buying old European Fords I think. They had Long Farmtrac for a while and are now using only Farmtrac name.
Greg said the CUT are LG tractors. The LG are also sold as Montanas.

I have seen them up close and they look like they were made with Ford's old dies and tooling (and probably were). Quality isn't bad though. But that doesn't mean that they used the same materials Ford spec'd out with the originals, so durability and reliability over the long term is anybody's guess.

Check out this thread, "Old Farm Buddies Bought Farmtrac". I have heard good things about Farmtrac.

loghouse; Have you compared your machine to Fords as far as sheetmetal styling, and drivetrain appearance? If there is direct Ford heritage, Ford would have been wise to insist they make them a certian way if only to keep selling Ford-brand service parts. But that's my opinion.

Escorts made tractors sold under the Ford name from 1969. The owners of the factory chose not to sell out to NH in thier acquision of the Ford tractor division. There likely were some Escorts built ford tractors sold as Ford in USA (just at JD has some Indain built tractors now). Farmtrac can supply new replacment engines for Ford tractors, reportedly cheaper than a rebuild from NH. It was not "old tooling" the factory is the largest tractor plant (one location) in the world (so I'm told). with most companies building CUT tractors, the Farmtrac is a good alternative for a utility tractor. Many parts are interchangable with Ford. they have inch fasteners. engines in most models are updated versions (EPA) of the Ford designs.
