 TYM and Terramite Tractors

Hi all, I'm new to this forum and from the content here, I found the right place for help. Appreciate any insights you all can provide on TYM or Terramite tractors. I'm looking for a 30 HP 4WD tractor to work 6 ac, mostly on hillsides in Northern Cal. Wife and daughter are tired of boarding the horses elsewhere. :- ) Anyway, like many of you, I'm on a very tight budget and can't afford JD, Kubota or NH. I'm also very leery of the totally off-brands, but I ran across TYM which uses Kubota and is Korean-made. Also ran across the Terramite T9. Both are about $5K less than the comparable JD. Anyone know anything about these two brands. I'd like to be educated before buying. Thanks much!

 TYM and Terramite Tractors

I don't know anything specific about the grays but I think some of them are pretty good and some have developed significant N.A. presence and dealer networks.

The question always seems to come down to who's going to work on it, where do the parts come from and are technical manuals available. I think that some gray owners in some areas are served very well but others end up a doing overseas mail order parts business and having no technical support.

Unless you're in an area that has dealer support for a particular tractor I think of the higher big 3 or 4 prices as a kind of insurance. You expect a decent tractor to be reliable and durable but it's good to know that help is available if needed.

Tractors, horses and hay sometimes go together. If you'll be buying hay it might be good to find out the size bales available from local suppliers. Big round bales are heavy and awkward. Most 30hp compacts would have problems managing the big ones. I solved my budget problem by going with a used 24hp Ford (supported by NH). The story from my dealer is that the tractor was a trade in for a farm tractor by someone found that it wouldn't deal with big bales very well.

 TYM and Terramite Tractors

I am a TYM dealer and would be glad to talk with you about them. About the only thing Korean on them is the bodywork and assembly the rest are known components (Kubota, Eaton, Massy ect.)from other manufacturers. A five year warranty standard makes it much easier to look at also.

Never heard of TYM before but from what I looked at and read on the web site, they seem like pretty nice tractors for the money. Kubota pretty much makes a bullet proof engine. Would be interesting to see where the rest of the power train comes from. I thought I saw Eaton mentioned.

 TYM and Terramite Tractors

The TYM is a good tractor, as are the other South Korean models such as Branson (I sell Bransons in Northern California) Century, Kioti and the smaller Mahindras. Very good quality. I don't know anything about the Terramite. Good luck in your search, and let me know if I can help.

I guess the TYM is as good as some Malhindras or the Branson or the Century or the 5XXX Deere as they make all of them. From what I have looked at they are comparable to the Kioti.

 TYM and Terramite Tractors

About the only common thread that binds TYM and Kioti is the country they were assembled in. Kioti is a totally Korean tractor. The only parts built in Korea for TYM are the bodywork and misc small parts. Transmission is Eaton, Engines are Kubota and JD and drive train is Iseki. If it is close to any tractor it would be a TA model Iseki. Absolutely nothing wrong with Branson, Kioti ect they are great tractors that I would be lucky to own. TYM isnít godís gift to tractors (They all have one or two things we wish were different) but they are working hard to make it a real American machine.

 TYM and Terramite Tractors

Hello
Terimite Tractors are American built but are not what most whould consider compact untility tractors. They are a small backhoe loader commonly seen at rental yards. I have never seen one with a three point hitch or a PTO. Good unit for what it is but doesnot compare to a CUT except as a backhoe.
As for the TYM I may be wrong but I thought alot of the tractor was Korean. TYM is Korean. I know Scorpion and Mahindra compacts use the same platform but with different engines and I know on the hydros they use eaton. I thought most of the rest was Korean. (including the shuttle tranny) I have heard remarks the alot of the componets look like Iskei but I had not ever seen the verified. Can anyone comment factualy on this?
Thanks
Chipperman

If you look at a compact Mahindra and then look at a MF 1200 series(Iseki TK models) you will notice that they are a like. The Mahindra compacts are Iseki from the fire wall back. The engine and front axle are of some other orgin as far as I can tell.
