Funny. Back in the spring of '07 I went looking for a new 60-70 horse tractor with FEL, 4wd, and cab. Shopped all the local colors and nothing suited me. Gave up looking.
That Sept. I was rubber necking as usual and a row of red tractors caught my eye on the interstate. I investigated and found just what I was looking for. Really nice, extremely well built, functional, well thought out, and some really convenient whistles and bells.
Bought it and have had one problem with it and it was caused by the assembly people in Georgia (POE distributor) when they installed my air seat. They plumbed it into the nearest electrical service which just happened to be the AC feed. Popped fuses when operating both simultaneously. I fixed that and no more issues.
2 years ago I was mowing a neighbors meadow and my drum mower hit a rock and shot it into my right door. The glass shattered. I called the nearest dealer and had him drop ship me one. He said that the warehouse in Plainview, TX. had 7. I got it in just a few days at my door, UPS.
The thing that sold me on this guy, besides everything else is that it's powered by a naturally aspired 3.3 Liter Cummins 4 cyl diesel putting out 65 ponies. Can't tell you how efficient this engine is. If I told you you wouldn't believe me so I won't. Grin
Name is Branson, made by Kukje mfgr. in Korea. They make another badge also but not sure as to the name. Montana comes to mind.
