    I read a lot on three other tractor only nets.. These Jinma's, AKA Iron Horse, Homier, Northern hydraulics and probably a host of other names, have their share of problems. I know one guy who bought one in the crate, took it home, and all but tore it down and rebuilt it as it came out of that crate,. To my knowledge, he hasn't had any problems. Most owners are heavily mechanically inclined and therefore are not afraid to get their hands dirty now and then. My suggestion to you is, find a Jinma dealer close to you as possible and try them out. Then, purposefully, go try others like Kubota/Deere/NH/Kioti/Mahindra/Long/Branson and others,. This, ought to help you decide.
    Where in Mass are you?

    Was just out your area last week.. There are just as many variables of buying tractors and tractor types as there is needs for the same... Rather than take up band width here, PM me

    I suggest that you run. They are made inChina and that only means one thing..............JUNK. The Chinese can't even make high quality hand tools so what makes you think they could make a decent tractor? :)
