    Thanks Aaron. We did not want to respond to the nay-sayers. The nice thing is that the good guys will be left standing and end users will have a much clearer understanding of the market and have access to high quality tractors with a real warranty, still at a very attractive price.

    Thanks Aaron. That Google list led to an article with an explanation for the same thing in Texas. I also saw Oregon mentioned.

    Yanmar YM2000

    Default Re: Yanmar lawsuit.

    So it sounds like Yanmar America is sueing anyone who is selling yanmar tractors that is not an Official yanmar dealer?


    The way around this is for them to sell "japaneese tractors" that just say deisel tractor on them. They wont sell to those who dont know but recognise the Yanmar name but the little imports will still sell.

    You're right......they can sell them as "Japanese" tractors and they legally can even say they have Yanmar engines and parts. They just can't call them Yanmar tractors. Will be interesting to see how the importers change their marketing.

    What a stupid law lawsuit. Like someone couldn't buy a old BMW and restore it and call it a BMW because it doesn't have airbags in it after restoration. What we need is a good judge to through this out, and pass some tort reform. It's Yanmar and there is no changing that, just like cars.

    Maybe kind of? Zen-noh is (you may know this) an ag CO-OP in Japan. They buy huge numbers of tractors and then either sell or lease them to farmers. The tractors have the zen-noh lable where the make would normally be. Every one there knows there not a "zen-noh" brand tractor but from the co-op. These can be kubota's or yanmars or Isekis, but sinnce yanmar for years was the #1 tractor brand there, may still be? They just had a large amount of yanmars. So when these tractors were bought and sold here the old ones had nothing done to them when they first got here, just rolled out of fields into containers. Thats why many still say zen-noh.
