    The Dong Feng in Australia is sold as a separate brand by the same importer/dealer as the East Wind. It is sold with a parts only warranty.
    As I suggested to the OP he should do a search on Dealer names and see what he comes up with not only on here but on Google Australia.

    The reason they changed their name is that Caterpillar took a strong reaction to certain practices and launched a law suit.
    Ah. New name and new supplier. About 10 years ago, Agricat was essentially driven into bankruptcy here in North America. John Deere sued them for "certain practices" as well, and the judgment prohibited them from selling an apparently considerable inventory. They were marketing rebadged Jinmas at the time.

    In all honesty please forget about an Agricat FT304.

    The ONLY way you will find a tractor that won't bind in four wheel drive is to find one with an inter-axle differential with a lock out. Usually you will only find this feature on high end equipment. Ask the sales people if it has it.

    Bob think in this case it may be a confusion in terminology between USA and Australia. I know Bridgets full story and it goes a lot further than what has been said here. Think the op wanting to buy one of these tractors would be wise to read all postings in this thread and follow some of the advice given.
    Bob look back through the pm's I sent you many months back and you will understand

    Jinma 204

    Default

    Thooster. Hi. In mid north coast of NSW. I have had a Jinma for 8 years. Have about 600 hours on the clock. A few issues but nothing worse than my neighbors with the usual range of brands like NH or MF etc. Parts can be a pain but with the www never too far away. I service myself. I only have a 20hp but looking to upgrade to 35-40hp. I cop heaps from the locals about my little red Chinese tractor but for the price I've been happy.

    Since the GUI change here at TBN, it was a little challenging to find the old pm's. Forgot about that, now I understand.

    Hi
    Did you get one? I was watching a Jinma 454 on e-bay, brand new but no warranty, went for $10K.

    Agrison 50HP Turbo

    Default Re: what to buy

    thooster - i dont have a Agrison 30hp, but I do own the 50HP Turbo and a friend of mine owns the 90HP Ultra. ive been really happy with my 50hp, it does exactly what i need it to do & the service is good- moving hale bales around, using my post hole digger, great in 4wd function. i dont know about the 30hp i imagine it would be a much smaller version of mine???
