    AKtractorMan.
    I don't think that you will get any of the big 3-4-5 companies to ship unassembled, I may be wrong. Your best bet to ship that way will be a Jimma. Try www.Agract.com I know that some of the small dealers donít like them. Itís because they are taking so much of the market in the lower 48 and Hawaii. I have know the owner Charlie Foster for about 20 years. Talk to him. He is honest and will tell you the good and the bad.

    Agracat tractors, just like the other Chinese tractors are not on the same level are the Japanese tractors. The fit and finish has a lot to be desired. They do have some small problems but they are a very used tractor. If you are good with tools and can do things yours self they are a good option for you. If you buy from them and need parts ask for Allen. I have known him as long as Charlie.

    "I know that some of the small dealers donít like them. Itís because they are taking so much of the market in the lower 48 and Hawaii. "

    Jerry, the don't like doesn't come from Agracat beating them in the market. Just compare Agracat pricing with other Jinma dealers. I have heard numerous things, but can't post them here. The small dealers don't want the legal problems or to be cut-off by the factory, so they comply.

    I maintain a list of Jinma dealers that use to include Agracat. [http://johnstractor.homestead.com/fi...ealerPage.htm] Agracat was removed from that list, after receiving the email below. It was sent by Dean Peer and copied to Jim Steele. Maybe you know them, as well.

    &gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; start of email

    I found your web site this evening. Among the Dealer
    listings I was surprised to find my company - Agracat,
    Farmington AR.

    No one here is aware of the listing nor has anyone
    here given permission to use our name on your list.

    Please remove our name from your list. If our name is
    not removed within the next seven (7) days I will take
    additional steps to have it removed.

    Thanks for your help

    &lt;&lt;&lt;&lt; end of email


    PS: I thought Agracat did not sell by the crate, anyway.

    I have read stories about 18 wheelers driving across the ice to go into oil wells North of the Artic circle.That would be a bit unsettling to me driving across ice in a semi.

    Location/ Location/Location:

    I'm guessing somewhere along Norton sound, possibly Kotzebue? Maybe Icicle Fisheries?

    I have been up in that area during the Red Crab openers of the early eighties. Aboard the FV's Seleif and Sea Quail, out of Kodiak. Its a very large small world.

    Just an idea, if you are knowledgeable of the fishing industry. Maybe you could have this tractor brought to your area by fishing boat out of Kodiak, Dutch Harbor or St. Paul.

    Well good luck with the kubota. When you get a chance drop us a line or two. I personnally will be curios as to how your tractor makes its journey to Dahl Creek. I suppose that you are already starting to batten down for winter, keep warm.
