Re: Foton Tractors
No linkage between Foton and Massey. And the Perkins reference isn't completely accurate. Perkins HAD a joint venture in China called Tianjin Perkins, which it dissolved because of problems. The company has continued and used the Perkins name, even though they are not licensed to, and have no relationship with Perkins, (now part of Caterpillar). If you look closely, the engines don't just say Perkins, but "Perkins (Tianjin)" or something similar. The company has recently renamed itself "Lovol Engines", and is part of Lovol, which makes the Foton/Europard tractors. These tractors are sold under MANY brand names in the United States and abroad.
