 origin o4100

I am new to the board and have some confusion on the 4100 tractor. I am seeing from many posts here that the 4100 is made in Japan by Yanmar. A JD dealer told me that the 4100 engine & trans. are built in Japan but the tractor itself is assembled in Augusta, Georgia. Anyone have any further information to clarify this?

Your dealer is right. The 4100 IS made buy Yanmar of Japan (which is a GOOD thing, meaning quality), and it is Assembled in Augusta,Ga.

As of last summer the 4100 was designed and assenbled in Japan, and shipped here in a crate where it was joined with its tires and wheels. The sales brochure for the 4100 I bought last May is clear that the 4200 and up are from the plant in Georgia. All 4000 series engines are made by Yanmar.

Thanks for the info. So, does this mean that items like the ROPS, seat, hood, fenders, and other items are added after they get the tractor engine, trans.,& frame to Georgia? Sorry for my ignorance.

To the best of my knowledge, the 4100's never see georgia, they are put on the market out of a california warehouse.

So, the 4100 being built in Japan is a good thing?

Yes, It is a Quality thing. John Deere should have allowed Yanmar to design and build the entire 4000 series. We owners would have had many less headaches.

I owned a 4100 the first year they were out. Not a bad tractor at all, was just a bit too small (read HP) for my use. The nicest part about the machine is the ease at which the attachments come on and off. The 60" belly deck is perfect for it and the machine is a nice blend of steel and composites.

Sorry guys, I was out of town for the last 6 days and forgot to bring the laptop with me. As far as Japanese quality and engineering, in my experience they are the best in the world. Several years ago Consumer Reports published an interesting article. They looked for the best, most reliable American vehicle and came up with the Ford pick up truck. It averaged only three warranty claims per vehicle. They compared it with the worst Japanese vehicle they could find and found that to be a Subaru. The Suby averaged one warranty claim for every third vehicle and the Toyota, like the Corolla at the time were off the charts at something like one claim for every twelve vehicles. I think it is because the Japanese government imposes testing standards that would make American manufacturers scream for mercy. They simply will not let any product out of the country that isnít damn near perfect. With reasonable care almost any Japanese engine will go 200,000 miles and still run like a Swiss watch.

Mark;
The Toyota Corolla's sold here are made in Freemont CA and Cambridge Ont. I believe there is also a plant in Europe. Of the plants making Corollas a few years ago the Canadian plant had the highest rating. I don't know now.
One of the main Toyota design studios is in California.
Subarus are only made and designed only in Japan.
According to the team concept diversity of people improves the thought process. American Auto Companies compete quite well in Europe and provide a much better quality car than here.
Maybe the problem is the monolythic american culture in the auto industry not the workers that is the problem? I know of a few talented people that have been bumped through the big three only to get discussed with the whole American based industry.
