bought a big JD around 2005/2006 for work, I forget the model, but we pulled a 12-15" batwing with it. Even back then, it was made in Mexico, or at least a crapton of the parts were.

whatever model this is, I was very surprised Mexico was all over that thing.

My smaller JD870 was actually a yanmar according to all the yanmar labels on it. It was just painted green. Have no idea where it was made.

It worked great, i was just very surprised. When i purchased it i just thought it would have been built in USA. I was pretty naive i guess.

They have a huge plant in Mannheim, Germany and I used to haul the smaller JD's out of Horicon, Wisconsin.

With a little research is sounds like several of the JD compacts are still built by Yanmar but are assembled by JD in Georgia.. At one time the JD were Yanmar, Ford New Holland was Shubaura and later LS and the Case IH were Mitsubishi. Read at one time that all tractors under 100 hp were made overseas across all US brands.

All these jobs lost to overseas workers, to bad.
