: I can tell you the main difference: they're cheaper to buy and that's why Bob doesn't want you to buy one. This mumbo-jumbo about parts has gone on long enough, call 1800-700-Grey. We can get almost any part you could want for a Grey Market tractor, be it Yanmar, Kubota, Mitsubishi, or Iseki. Let's stop the lies gentlemen, the truth is these are high quality almost identical tractors to the American models and cost considerably less.

: Can anyone tell me what the real differences are with grey market tractors.
: : I have learned that the Kubota B6000 pto turns in the wrong direction but even on the north american models it does
: : And rops well whats with all the hype cant that be installed on any tractor?

R.O.P.S. ( Roll Over Protection System ) can they REALLY be installed in any Gray Tractor????

The rear axle shafts very on each tractor make and model.

Two U-bolts would work great drilled thorough two
flat plats wrapped around the rear wheel drive axle.

BUT each tractor varies in size and shape, and distance between the Rear Tire
and in side shield. Some of which give very little
room to fit any thing to the axle.

Each Tractor should be custom fit.

Very expensive idea for a company to provide to the public.

I do wish a State University Ag Dept. or Mechanical Eng. Dept. would try for a government grant to develop a universal
fitting GRAY market R.O.P.S.

That's my two cents
