These trasctors are built in Coventry England and are the US version of the 4245, same tractor different emissions and drawbar. Due to a problem with the undercoat/primer used many of these tractors, including my own three had to be repainted under warranty, quite simply the paint flaked off them!. The price they make over here tells of how good they are In fact they are nearly as expensive now as when they were new. I find them to be excellent tractors, but for better gear ratios I prefer the 18x 6 gearbox, the 12 speed manual shuttle box has quite a gap between ratios, but if you are used to older tractors this will not be a problem. The tractor sounds very cheap to me. Sam

The 4243 is NOT the US version of a 4245. Both were available for sale here in the US. We sold some of both here at our dealership. A 4243 is really a cheaper version of a 4245. They were produce in big batches with basically the same specs and features, intead of being a "built to order" tractor, which made them cheaper to build. They were good tractors, but we didn't feel they were quite as good as the 300 series they replaced.
