Consensus about China (Hardy) Diesel tractors:

Purchase price: very good
Ergonomics: poor
Fit & finish: poor
Reliability: fair to poor
Parts availability: fair to poor
Serviceability: fair to poor
Resale value: poor
Overall satisfaction level: very low

Your mileage may vary, but I doubt it.

Matt,

I wanted a China Diesel in the worst way. I have about 30 sheets of information on the machine. You should do your homework on "Grey Market" tractors. Not much warrenty, if any at all, and part supply, good luck.
You can get a 254y for around 6,500.00 or so (might be 6900) and have a reconditioned used tractor, or spend a little more and get a real name Kubota or John Deere. Think about it, if a tractor like the china Diesel was that great, why would so many people buy Kubota's and JD ect....

I spent two years thinking about buying the 254y, I know am a proud owner of a JD 790, and never look back on my desicion as being a mistake.

The guy on the phone at China Diesel sounded to be more of a Salemen, then a tractor buff. And out of all of NJ/PA/NY only a few people were given to me as references. When I wanted to know about JD satisifaction, all I had to do was drive around the area and see a John Deere in just about every Farm. Never once in my life have I seen or heard anything about China Diesel until I saw them on the WEB.

You can get a GST 4100 or a 790 John Deere for around 10,900.00 or so. Brand new, lots of support and you know that they will be around for a while. good luck in a couple years when you have a bad machined part on your China Diesel.

A couple points as an example:
Why do they ship the machine with a complete engine rebuild kit?
What happens if the one and only company importer to the US goes under?
And, oh yes, can you say you know anyone in your state who has one of these machines?

I am sure these machines are strong and solid, but like I said, what support do you have if something should go wrong. I like to see what happens when you want to ship your tractor back to CA. becuase you are sick of the way is runs, or something like the power steering pump goes, and the guy says "We'll ship you a new one"

If you really can't swing a new machine, look into used JD 755,855,955, Around the same price you can even get a Kubota 7300 (loader brings price up to 9,000).
Many other machines out there.

Sorry If I went on too long, just hit a sore spot with me.
