    30 series Mahindra is going to be called the 55xx series for Tier IV. So a 55 HP 30 series will now be a 5555, instead of a 5530. Confusing for a while I think.
  94. Re: What has happened to tractors? Help us choose another workhorse for our tree farm

    Yes we do carry them, so my opinion will no doubt be biased some. We sell a lot of Mahindra tractors and are very pleased with them. Mahindra has many models, built all over the world. I have...
  95. Re: What has happened to tractors? Help us choose another workhorse for our tree farm

    The Mahindra paint issue has been much, much better since about 2008 or 2009. They changed paint formulas and models built after that hold up much better. They still fade some, like everything...
  96. Re: I own a New Red tractor that broke 3 times and I have been without it for 6 month

    Comparison Re: Kubota BX25D. Vs Mahindra 22max

    Varmint, the Mahindra Max tractors are built in Japan by Mitsubishi. Quality is on par with Kubota in my opinion. I'm biased and could tell you why I like Mahindra better, but a Kubota guy could...
