    Well, I did it. Bought/Ordered my Foton 404 today and the Spirit sl-30 loader. $11,800 shipped to door. Also bought a 6' tiller at TSC out the door at 1399. Painful wait begins.Ordered from 300 mi. away, not across pond.

    We looked at one of those when looking at the 254... A very nice piece of machinery.

    Question... What colour are fotons over there? They're all green here...

    Can't speak nationally, but the ones in this region are all in the red family; ranging from a rusty maroon to fire engine red.

    We had a hard time for a while getting Foton Parts, I now have a good source and we are increasing our Foton Parts supply every month, we should be able to take care of you if you need something

    Well,I pulled the trigger................and the round was a DUD! Poor customer service in answering questions so I jumped up to a Kioti. Still may buy a crate jinma for my son in a year or so, if he doesn't take to likin the Kioti.
