    Was just looking up some tractor companies on Google. I was surprised when I clicked on the Montana Tractor website. As of Jan. 2011, they are no longer selling any tractors or machinery. Now, they exist only as a parts and warranty supplier. I guess the economy got them.
    If you have a Montana, you had better dump it before they quit supplying parts. Or, find a good source of aftermarket parts.

    I think it also was in part driven by the fact their supplier (LS Tractor) is now marketing directly under their own label in the US. No different than what Yanmar Tractor did with CC.
