 Terraplane tractors

Anyone know of the background and reliability of these tractors? How do they compare to Jinma etc.

 Terraplane tractors

The Terraplane name has been on several tractors over the last couple of years, Futian/Foton, KAMA, and DF, seems currently they are just using the DF tractor. This is a decent tractor and has been sold in the US for several years. It is also the same basic tractor as Taskmaster. Cosmetics, especially fiberglass work is better than Jinma. Last I checked prices on Terraplane tractors are higher than typical Jinma selling prices.

DF tractors are imported under an exlclusive agreement meaning one company controls distribution of tractors and parts in the USA. This helps maintain brand value by limiting competition from "fast buck" type competitors who don't make the commitment to plan for the long haul by stocking parts, etc and so can sell at lower prices then move on when the easy money is gone. It also means that parts will have to come from that same restictive channel. and can sometimes result in higher prices. I don't have any knowledge of Terraplane parts prices or thier availability, but the rules of supply and demand still seem to work the same as I learned in college 30 years ago.

My advise is to go see both, drive both if possible, and evaluate the dealers ability to support you after the sale, assign a dollar value to differences you discover and then see which is the best value. Might want to look at KAMA too!

 Terraplane tractors

Dragon tractors were built by Feng Shou, I believe, which became Jiangling, and is now Mahindra Jiangling. Lenar currently imports Feng Shou/Jiangling tractors, so you may try them. Also, the Dragon Tractor Corp, of Trion, GA, became the Branson Tractor Company. So, Branson may be able to help as well.

 Terraplane tractors

DFAM or Dongfeng is building the line for Lenar, Mahindra is using the Jaingling in its own product mix. We tried to see if they would sell us some JL254II last summer and they declined. I am still waiting to see a new Mahindra model from China. They did get EPA certifiecation for the engine so they must be planning on it to go to that expense.
