Got a question? Just saw a Boomer 8N this morning and sort of reminds ya of the old Ford 8N. Now the question. I have looked thru googles New Holland material and cannot find where it is made. They (NH) says it is assembled in Georgia. One of the designers is in India. Over 24% of India made tractors shipped out of the country are New Holland. The only company with more is John Deere. So do you think the Boomers are made in India? Len

They are assembled in Dublin, GA along with other NH compact tractors. The plant is about 15 miles from me. It looks like they also assemble small excavators there as well.

They were sure proud of it when they priced it but they can't tell you where it came from, sounds like this could lead to a political disscussion to me.

It wouldn't take much for the boomers 50 hp to out pull the Ford 8N. My uncle bought a new Ford when they first come out. His brother (my uncle) told him he would pull that Ford all over the yard with his team of horses. And he did, I watched him do it. He said the Ford was made to replace a team and that's what they did a good job of.

Might offend some folks here. The 8n was a big step up from mules, but Grampa always said "that thing couldnt pull a greased string out of a cat's arse!" The boomer looks just like a NH TC30 with different colors and hood.

Mmhmm. Had one. The only way it could pull was with at least half a ton of weight hanging off the hitch. Otherwise, those rear tires just spun on the surface.

NewHolland compacts are assembled in Georgia from components sourced from Shibura (ISM) in Japan. There's no doubt about that. Not even mabey.

Yes, I see Shibura is a Japanese brand but they do not say they make the boomer or any NH on their list. Maybe I got ahold of an old page.

No... I don't expect that they would tell you that information or any other of their myriad business arrangements.
Ford started dealing with ISM in the early 1970's to supply various models of compact tractors to be branded as Ford. Probably at that time it was as simple as rebadging an ISM model. Today I'm sure there are several proprietary features to NH compacts that Shibura doesn't have... such as SuperSteer, etc.
You'll also find that ISM's engines are widely sold and used by Cat in some of their smaller machines like skid steer loaders... and sold as industrial engines for stand alone power sources.
ISM is doing a lot of things in the background that many people don't know about...

If they don't know where their factory is they need some help in my opinion.
