Sorry if this is old news, I didnt se much in the search. I had no idea.

Who makes the tractor?
Our tractors are made by Tong Yang Moolsan, the largest tractor manufacturer in Korea, at their new, ISO 9001 certified factory. All tractors in these HP ranges sold in the U.S. originate from outside the U.S, including those of all the leading brands. The 3-pt. implements are all made right here in the U.S. by King Kutter, and the tires & wheels are made by Midwest-based Titan International, the world’s leading provider of high quality agriculture tires & wheels, and industry-leading Carlstar Group of Tennessee, long-respected for their cutting-edge technology and product performance.

Same manufacturer who makes the Mahindra sub-compacts. RK is using a Yanmar engine, an upgraded seat, and a few more changes...

TYM makes (or has made) lots of tractors under a bunch of different brands. Most recently, they were building tractors for the Cabela's brand. Apparently Cabela's couldn't sell enough of them top make it worthwhile and they've gotten out of the tractor business.

They offered me the opportunity.
However, they insisted that I get rid of Johnny.

I turned them down.

TYM doesn't build engines (or transmissions) so they've used different engines over the years.

When TYM was building tractors for the Allmand and Millennium brands they used Kubota engines. The machines that built for Cabelas had Mitsubishi engines for the smaller machines and Yanmar engines for the larger units.

Compare the Rural King RK55 models vs. Cabela's LM55 models vs. TYM's T554 models. Same engines, transmissions, dimensions, capacities, ratings, etc... The only differences between them is paint color and labels.

How does that work? You sell your machine and keep the money? They "loan" you a tractor for 2 years? How does that loan work, is it a $0 lease, so that you have some sort of rights?

Sorry, Dan. I don't think I should go into that.

Or really?!!?!?!??!? I’m pretty sure I’ve seen posted here many many times that all the new R series SCUT’s, MCUT’s and possibly even the CUt’s from Deere are made and assembled in US plants, now mind you yes they do have Japanese engines (yanmar), transmissions (TuffTorq) and parts and castings sources globally but they are definitely not what this info from RK claims.....

JimR About the same as possible Branson, MF ,AC and possibly a couple other brands in the larger HP size.
Can't remember the brand I seen yesterday but it looks exactly like my neighbors MF 90-95hp except for different color and a few decals.

Biggest difference $$$$$, my friend told me there was no way he could have bought the MF he was looking at , somewhere around $20-25000 just so the hood had MF, he said no way. His is still Red same engine ,transmission ,everything the MF had. He was told (can't remember the # of brands) all came down the same assembly line and at the end of the line painted a different color or the painted items were done coming down the assembly line. :dunno:

It's interesting (or is to me anyways) to really take a look at the tractors we have available to us here in the US. When I was looking for a new/newer compact tractor and was asking questions I was told by a few folks to take a look at some used Bobcats a local dealer had. The Bobcats those folks was so fond of was produced by Daedong (Kioti) and although there is nothing at all wrong with a Kioti tractor IMO when I tried to explain to them that Bobcats was imported tractors with a name on the hood sporting Bobcat colors they basically looked at me as if I was a fool. It's very similar to MTD and riding mowers, design a tractor and tweak things as needed to manufacture what the customer is asking for. Anyways, it's interesting to take a close look into who makes what when your ready to make a tractor purchase. You don't have to look very far into something before you realize it might not be what you first thought it was.

The styling resembles the TYM brand quite a bit. There is a shop in town that has had some TYM for sale at times, and they look pretty nice. That shop primarily sells Branson tractors.

Yanmar is the final Parent company of Tuff-Torqs Parent Company So Yanmar is making a killing either way :bigthumb:

Not to tough to figure out. "Our tractors are made by Tong Yang Moolsan...". "Tong Yang Moolsan" = TYM. :laugh:
