    After seeing where it's final destination is I would assume you would like the simplest tractor possible with just the basics. Manual transmision, lights and hydraulics and four wheel drive. The bachoe may be purchased from independant manufacturer. I also assume there is a maximum # limit per crate if it is air delivery and also crate size may be important.

    Just thoughts;
    contact Chinese factory direct for purchase and delivery. This may save having it go thru Seatle. You would probably need a broker for all the legal aspects. The Factory may also be able to put you in touch with West Coast dealers. Anchorage Freight Companies will be able to give you all the freighting advice you need.
    As to assembly problems I know little but could forsee hydraulic connection points and gaskets where/if required. Maybe worst would be instructions that are hard to follow. Thread type on nuts and bolts may also be an issue if some are lost or missing.
    Wish I could really help but this is the best I can do.
    Best of luck.

    Perhaps Harv, or even Steve Carver, could recommend a reputable West coast dealer.

    Clutches should have been adjusted at the factory. Most crated tractors only have the wheel/tires, 3pt linkage and the ROPS removed. Maybe fenders and some smaller items too. Loaders and backhoes usually come banded to their own pallets. Their are a few dealers just north of the border in British Columbia that specialize in Chinese and Grey market tractors. I beleive Yanmars and grey market kubota's are fairly common there. Will contact you with more info regarding these as I receive it.
