The Chinese tractors don't come close in quality and build to something like a 2210 or a BX2200 or 2350 but they cost half and in some cases less than half as much as the green, orange, or blue tractors and even close to half what a Kioti sells for. If you are good mechanic and don't mind fixing or upgrading all of short comings and problems of these tractors they are a good choice for a buyer who wants to spend less and still get a tractor with 4WD, a FEL, and 3 pt. hitch. They are also very good for extreme high hour applications such as running a pto generator or operating a pond aerator. They are definitely not for everyone but they have quite a large following with the CTOA.
You were right about the pics, I worked on them some more tonight. Someone else told me it looked like on of the tractors had 6 wheels!. I also made the picutres a little bigger.
Since you are right next door in Missouri (We're in Arkansas), maybe you will get a chance to come and see these tractors in person. Coffee is usually on!
Chief, Same goes for you in Tennesee, stop by if you get in the area, and thanks for the PR! I showed a few hits on my site from here so I thought I'd check it out it a nice site. Have you been to the new CTOA board yet?
How far are you from the state line at Memphis? Memphis is about a 2 - 3 hour drive for me.
I have been following both of the CTOA boards and Hal seems like he has been having a bit of a tough time with them. Is there a new board? I check the World Crossing board and the the b5 board which seems to be dead at the moment.
Hey......thanks for the plug! Do ya hear that Andy????? angel arty: :cowboy: :smiles:
I just may take you up on the offer for a visit sometime! Would nice to come by and take a looksee.
BTW, I just edited the mileage in my previous post, Its about 3 hours not 300 miles, west of Memphis.
Its funny you get "under construction" at the CTOA site, I tried it before I put it in the post. There are about 75 registered users now on the "new" CTOA, but not much tractor info being posted there yet.
hey artrac, can you give me an unbiased opinion on the longtrac vs. the chinese tractors. i think you sell both. i am very interested in the new longtracs or farmtracs 555 to 675 with fel and grapple, but do not know enough about them.
