    Default Who makes AGCO tractors?

    Someone told me AGCO used to be Allis Chalmers, is this so? Are they American, Chinese, Korean, etc made? What is the quality, dependability, parts availability, etc.?

    AGCO did indeed used to be Allis Chalmers. Their compacts are made by Iseki of Japan. They are of excellent quality. AGCO is a big multi-brand company. They also own Massey Ferguson. The MF compacts are also made by Iseki as are the Caterpillar compacts. My brother has an AGCO, It think it is an ST30 or 25. Anyway, it is a quality tractor.

    The AGCO name is short for, Allis Gleaner Corporation.

    Not to be confused with <font color="brown">ARGO Industrial Group</font>, home of McCormick, Landini, etc.
    Also, not to be confused with <font color="blue">ARGO ATV</font>, home of 8X8 and 6X6 atvs.

    AGCO was formed in 1990 to purchased the Deutz-Allis and Gleaner brands from KHD (Deutz-Fahr) in Germany. (DF is now owned by Same Deutz-Fahr, an Italian company).

    AGCO later bought White (Oliver, Cockshutt, Minneapolis-Moline), White-New Idea (New Idea and White equipment), Hesston (hay tools, not the tractor portion), Massey Ferguson, McConnell Tractors (built the MF 4WD originally, and then the AGCOStar), Fendt, Valtra (Valmet, Valtra Valmet, Volvo, BM Volvo), Spra-Coupe, Tye (Glencoe, Farmhand), Deutz Argentina (Deutz-Allis in Argentina), Willmar, Caterpillar's Ag division (Challenger) and Ag-Chem. Tractors are sold under the Deutz-Allis (Argentina only), AGCOStar (S.America), AGCO, Massey Ferguson, Challenger, Fendt and Valtra brands. They previously have distributed Landini, Same, Deutz-Fahr and still distribute some Iseki tractors (Australia).

    They own 24% of Tafe of India. (Tafe just bought the Eicher tractor company of India)

    Tractors are built by AGCO in USA, France, Brazil and Finland. They are licensed built in several other countries. AGCO has or does buy and relabel or license tractors built by Iseki, Same Deutz Fahr, ARGO (Landini/McCormick), Carraro, Tafe, Ursus, Uzel, Millat, Farmwell, IMT, MTF, ITMCO and VenIran. (probably missing some).

    Combines are built in AGCO factories in USA, Brazil and Denmark, and by Same Deutz Fahr (Laverda) in Italy.

    How's that for a "brief" run-down?

    This company seriously looks after its brands. I am planning on getting the McCormick TeleTrac for the multifunctionality etc. Because the smaller A.Carraro
    Any brand is only as good as the service given when severe issues need resolution.
    Please check all the info on rangerdaves Carraro TRX transmission casings snapping with others withe same problem.
