    There is a thread in which this is mentioned by an L4600 owner, I have no knowledge beyond that: http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/k...w-l4600-3.html

    Frankly I did not see anything wrong that caught my eye as far as fit and finish. I think it's just cheaper labor. For me it was one time opportunity to make the purchase so I opted out on 4600 not to ever second guess myself. I don't know if the engine is assembled in Thailand or whole engine manufactured from japan for sure. My dealer said all he was told was it is all assembled from Japanese parts in Thailand.

    JC,

    ps: I have bunch of pictures side by side with next rig pretty close and slightly better than L4600. I can post them if it helps you with decision making.

    I just purchased a L4600 and they are assembled in Thailand. I don't think it's a big deal, the parts still come from Japan and I'm very happy with it.

    I have an L4600 assembled in Thailand. So far it has been a good machine,very happy with it's performance. One other post on TBN stated that they are made at a plant that produces kubota tractors for the Asian market.I don't think it's a big deal,quaility is the same as the other Kubota's I have owned.
