I just love the term "grey" market on these compacts. "Grey market" started as tractors not made for export to the US. A lot of folks got used grey market Kubotas that were imported used and resold. Then people started calling the cheap Chinese imports as grey market. Now everyone is calling anything not JD, CaseIH, Kubota and toher major brands. Last time I looked Yanmar was alive and well and has dealers here in the US.

Oldtanker- At least among the Yanmars, "grey market" still has the old definition. There's an outfit, Hoye, that specializes in parts for them. Went on line to look for a manual, and they have it split into "Japan" and "US" models.

I remember when the grey markets started making it to our shores- dire predictions of no parts, inferior tractors, etc. Turns out the main difference is that the companies could build virtually the same tractor for their domestic markets for less money, because THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO CONFORM TO ALL THE *^$#% US REGULATIONS. As soon as some outfits started importing parts (which was legal), end of problem.
