tractors we sell were sold new overseas in Japan. There is a plethora of them because of laws that encourage the tractor owners to upgrade often. They are then restored, mostly overseas, and then inported. We have an affordable product to sale with consistant quality and reliability.
Here at Big Little Tractor we try to keep a good variady of units from 16 horsepower to 52 horsepower. The 16 hp tractor are just a bit larger than a riding lawn mower, although much heavier. The 16 hp tractor will lift 6 to 700 lbs in the bucket. The 52 hp weighs in at 3600 lbs including loader and can lift 1600 lbs in the loader bucket.
The restoration on the tractor is extensive and covers a new clutch, new piston sleeves and rings. There are some differences in tractors built for the USA market versus those intended for the Asian market. However the differances are small and there are advantages both ways.
1) The Tractor Power Take Off (PTO) in Japan has several speeds, but in the USA market there is only one speed (540 RPMs). The Japenese tractors we sell come with multiple PTO speeds, including 540 RPMs.
2) ROPS (Roll Bars) are not required on Japanese tractors, so we add them for the US market.
3) The fuel throttle on a Japanese tractor pulls down for more speed. The opposite is true on the USA product.
4) There are guards requierd in the USA market that are sometimes left off the Japanese models. We make sure they are added on the tractors we sell, as well as seat belts and ROPS.
As I mentioned earlier, we replace all clutches. We have competition that neglects to replace the clutch. These tractors come from a very humid area and the clutch and presure plate see rust and must be replaced. So we always replace them.
The loaders we sell on our tractors are of high quality and built over seas. They are engineered and built to fit the size of tractor and model; not a loader made to fit many different size of tractors. Our loaders are always a perfect fit and don't come looking like a horse saddle on a pig.
We are an Internet sales company and therefore we don't have a regular store front. That being said, call anytime and make an appointment and I will do my best to meet up and show you the product we have in stock. We always try to leave Saturdays open for showing; but call for an appointment for anytime during the week as well.
