    Has anyone had any experience using a Montana Tractor? Their 88 hp machine with a Protech I think would do well.

    hey brad, was talking to a dealer today about the montana tractors, turns out that the branch that builds montana is LG (lifes good) makers of TV's and electronics. Also turns out they have a parts distributer in Red Deer, and a North American head office in Indiana, these might be alright

    Yeah I was going to say they are LG. I think what I heard two years back is you (dealership i mean) patent a tractor name and paint colour and sell the LG tractors under your invented name (i.e. montana). so I think there may be a few other "brands" of the same LG tractors our there. Don't quote this information as being 100% fact though. That system may also be the way of selling a Chinese? Japanese? tractor as a North American one? I don't know...

    The tractors are made in South Korea, which is far better than the Chinese stuff. My understanding is that they ARE made by LG (Life's Good). I get delivery of my first one today.
