I know there has been a tremendous amount of acquisitions and mergers in the construction industy. This has resulted in equipment being made by one name and branded by another. For instance, Hitachi (not to be confused with Fiat-Hitachi) was making equipment for Deere. Now Daewooo is making a few loaders for them. And the CNH merger incudes Case, NH, O&K, and Korbelco. I bet there are a few machines that are just different colors. I believe Cat even outsourced some machines here and there. So who makes what? What machine is just painted a different color or has only minor differences? And should it matter? Who wont buy a machine because it is made by another company?
