  What is a Gray Market Tractor?  

DEFINITION: In some parts of the world the word gray with an “a”, is spelled grey with an “e”. Whether your question is about gray market tractors or grey market tractors, the tractors are the same. Tractors built for use in the country of manufacture, but imported to a second country for use there, are considered gray (grey) market tractors. Although one might conclude from the word “gray” that there is something shady about used imported tractors, they are entirely ethical and legal to import (except Kubota).

WORLDWIDE MAKES: Tractors made for foreign countries all over the world manage to make their way to the United States. If those tractors were made for use in the country of origin, and the version brought here was not intended for use here, that tractor is a gray market tractor. You can find gray market Fords from England here, as well as other makes in versions made for foreign markets all over the world.

JAPAN: The largest number of grey market tractors coming into this country are from Japan. That is why when most people in the US refer to gray market tractors, they are talking about used, compact, Japanese diesel tractors. Therefore, the best known makes of grey market tractors are Mitsubishi, Iseki, Shibaura, Hinomoto, Satoh, Suzue, Zen-noh, and Kubota. Used Kubota tractors are no longer imported to the USA.

PRICE COMPARISON: So many used Japanese compact tractors have come into this country in container after container that they often have very reasonable prices. As long as people buy easy parts access models of gray market tractors in sound condition, those gray market tractors are often a better buy than used domestic tractors. That is why so many grey market tractors for sale can be found from coast to coast in the US.

DOMESTIC COUNTERPART MODELS: The Japanese build compact tractors for the big name tractor companies in this country. Mitsubishi has made Cub Cadet and other small Case-IH tractors; Iseki manufactures for Massey Fergusson; Shibaura makes Ford/New Holland compacts; Hinomoto built for Massey Fergusson and Allis Chalmers, etc. The Japanese make the best compact tractors in the world, and the big US tractor companies discovered that decades ago and took advantage of that knowledge. Imported Japanese tractors can be found all over this country with domestic names and also with the names of their Japanese manufacturers.
