 whats the latest story w/the demise of RHINO tractors????

I have several customers who bought them RHINO tractors instead of buying a good used japanese compact. Now, they don't know where to get parts since the departure of RHINO International. anybody know who took over the product line?

 whats the latest story w/the demise of RHINO tractors????

Rhino is being partially resurrected. Someone is reintroducing the RHino under another name. They are supposed to have a $1.5 mill. parts inventory. They will only be marketing 8 models of the tractor. The models that were poorly designed or built they won't be selling. I can get them through my dealers association, but taking a wait & see attitude. I would assume I can get parts. If any one needs parts, feel free to contact me at sheaftractor@coiinc.com or 815-284-3226From what I understand, Alamo Group was distributing them, but wouldn't invest money for parts inventory, dealer support, etc. When Woods wanted to buy part of Alamo they didn't want Rhino, so Alamo just dropped Rhino. Don't know how true that is.

Rhino was a copyrighted name the Alamo group used on Chicom tractors built by several different factories. You needed different parts books for the "same" model # if it was built by a different factory. The "resurrection" is marketing, pure and simple. Someone thinks they can get hungry dealers and dealer wannabes to buy the things on the promise of 1.5 mil in inventoried parts. Well, guess what...my local NAPA inventories damn near that. That isn't squat. And it may simply be the leftovers from the Alamo collapse. Don't plan on long term support. You can't take something poorly built and make it good with parts support. Guess who makes the parts? Think they make a crappy tractor, but good parts? Beware the Chinese tractor.....(I'm sure the 22 people nationwide who got a good one all read this board and will flame me...but I've heard too many horror stories, and talked to too many people who sold them)

Hi Wayne, thanks for your response. I share your opinions 100%.I had heard someone bought what was left of the company to give it another shot.Not that I care to see them back on the market. I'm tired of people trying to trade them in on good used jap & domestic tractors I have.Jim
