I've only had my 160 since March, but do enjoy it. You are correct, that it is foreign made. That means that everything is metric on it, which is a bit of a pain. It starts very easy, has nice hydraulics and three point. I've had to work on the brakes, which is a common problem with them and the transmission slips out of high gear when going downhill, so have to hold it in gear then.

Dan, Some depends on what you want to use it for and what condition the one you are looking at is in. I like mine a whole bunch but it is a city tractor. Just gets used for a little loader work and some tilling. Plenty of power and you couldn't ask for an easier starting diesel! Good manuverability too. Nice size and weight. Brakes are only so-so.
The downside is that parts are getting harder to get. No problem ultimately so far but if time were a factor the crops would have suffered! Not my first choice for my only farm tractor but a heck of a good machine for a loader tractor. From a collectable standpoint I think they are unique. Allis' first import tractor. Kind of the first of their breed. Look at all the tractors built offshore today and painted to match a line and you will understand what I mean. Hope this has helped some. Let me know if I can give you any more info.
