That is what sold me on the Kubota, a three year old machine
with a couple hundred hours were selling for almost the same as new!

That's what I like about this , we can ALL voice OUR opinion!

 TYM and Terramite Tractors

I would say this to you Shelby:

Concerns about the dealer are valid, but that applies to any dealer selling any manufacturer. The Kubota dealer down the street could be gone tomorrow. The dealer I went to has been around forever, runs a nice, family-owned store, carries numerous different brands and comes from the agriculture business himself.
The Scorpion is manufactured by TYM a South Korean company that's been in existence since 1960, so today they have a solid 44 year base under their belt and they are a very strong corporation.
I'm hoping the link I provided works and you can read some stuff about them.
Their ag equipment comes with very reliable, proven components.

The world is obviously an uncertain place: being a GM dealer's son, I never thought I'd see the day when General Motors axed Oldsmobile-but they did. My point is;research all you can, demo all you can, ask all the questions you can and then go for it!!!!

Well, I can't get the link I wanted to use operable so try this:

Go to google.com
type in Tong Yang MoolSan
It'll bring up links,
click third one down
and remember to click on "English" because the page originally loads in Korean, obviously !!

For a long time now, Mahindra claims being the third largest tractor mfg in the world. I have now way of proving that right of wrong. I will guess that they have 8% of the U.S. market.. Of course any third world country or country that is jsut out of thrid world status and is making tractors left and right for their own needs, can claim being the third. Think of what China can claim, jsut in what they make for themselves. Never mind what is exported as the Jinma, Farm Pro, and however many other names is used..

I think you will find in compacts it is 4% +-. In ag utlity I do not know but my guess is it may be less.
Happy Tractoring

Hi Jay,
How's things going? I took a wild guess at 8% and really don't know any numbers. This started as some continuously seem to beat down anything that is not blue/green/or orange.. these Korean?Indian and other tractor makers I think are here to stay, whether one wants to admit it or not. Dealers may change, districts may a change a little, but overall tractor companies are here to stay and we just have to accept that fact.. More fish in the sea other than the same basic three colors..

Be sure and read some other tractor brand posts on this site
as well as other sites out there.
I always thought the local rental yard was a good source for
info on durability.
Good luck.

Just want to clarify the statement about "after WW2". Yes the Japanese were considered low quality back then. 8-10 years ago it was the same with the Czechs, Koreans and the Indians a lot has changed since then and they may not have as many bells and whistles as some of the Japanese models but the quality and fit and finish of many of the none major brands is second to none.
Again Happy Tractoring
Chipperman

All I can say is; Man, I love my Scorpion T450 (TYM) !!
Had 'er out today (was a sunny beautiful 50 degrees here in central Ohio) uses the loader and that tractor is just
s w e e t! South Korean-who cares. My Buick LeSabre has components from Canada, China, Madagascar, all over the freakin' world! But, it runs like a top and I love it!
