Rear blade will work fine for snow etc. front blade, if available, is preferred because you do not have to keep looking back. The Jinma tractors hp is generally rated at the PTO. Japanese tractors give the horspower rating in the name, for example a Hinomoto E222 is 22 hp at the PTO, with the third 2 representing that it is a 2 wheel drive. So if the third number were a 4 the tractor would be a 4 wheel drive. Minimum for bailer is 30hp, go larger is you can afford it. With parts readily available for these tractors, recommend that you shop for best price, as they are all the same, and lowest cost shipping. Have fun

That's the very reason I passed up the Kubota, NorTrack, and others. My New Holland TC35D has short throws on the direction pedals and I have spent as much as 12 hours a day working it.

If you want to save a few more bucks, and are a little wrench happy, you can save about $1500 on one of these Jinmas by buying them unassebled in the crate. You can handle the shipping a couple different ways, at your door, or delivered to a nearby port. There are several importers that offer this service, and it isn't very complicated. They take care of all the importing hassles.

I have heard that there are usually some assembly problems you may have to overcome, but support is available. If I remember the importers, try looking at Chinaimporters and maybe Best-Used-Tractors.

 NorTrac Tractor Quality Review

We have a dealer here in CT taht sells "Iron Horse" . They look identical to the Nortrac. I believe it's a father and son shop and they are pretty straight shooters. He more or less verified everything that has been said on these posts that they aren't finished as good, could use some better grease fittings and they are old school but they have proven reliable. The guy was pretty honest with me and told me he only had one with a bad engine and the guy who blew it up pushed it real hard in superlow and he really overdid it. He had on in the shop today needing a u-joint and it had 700 hours on it and it was the first time it was in for something that broke. They offer a full 1 year warranty parts and labor. I never though i'd do it but for the money and a 1 year warranty it's hard to pass up a 4x4 with power steering and a loader for around 8500. I have about 5-6 weeks of solid work to do around my house. with the rental companies getting 200-250 per day for a tractor and york rake around here I'll be way ahead of the game if it runs for this time and I can sell it and even get 50% back. Just my opinion on these.

I also have been keeping an eye on the infomation shared here. I have heard several people having good luck with the 20 to 25 hp models, but I have heard more people that have had problems with theirs. I agree that the price is a great deal, but I still am not sure about reliability.

I have been thinking of buying one of the Nortrac tractors with hopefully both the rough cut mower (bush-hog) and the front end loader. I think they will equip a tractor with both. Has anyone had much experiece with these attachments?

I have seen on this website some disagrement on who builds these tractors for Northern Tool. Is it Rhino or Jimmin?

Before I can give an informed answer, it would help to know what size (horsepower) tractor you want - and 2wd or 4wd?

They're rebadged Jinmas

the dealer is right off route 8 in derby / ansonia. It's called derby ave auto sales. I ended up buying a used Kubota BX2200 2001 model with 180 hours for $6,000 and am very happy with it. I was ready to buy the iron horse and then came across this deal. Good luck..Jim
