They look like the New Holland tractors, just painted a different color! They are probably built in the same plant. They sure are nice though, I almost bought a TC33 New Holland, but a Farmall red DX33 would get along much better with my cub! :wink:

I was told Case bought out New Holand and that its now called Case New Holland. Anyone know if this is true? And if so that would explain why they look so much like the New Holland tractors.

I was allowed to tour the Case Plant (Dublin, GA) in December where these are being manufactured.
They are Case Models with Farmall Emblems.
Smaller models are scheduled to start production shortly.
They are Farmall Red. It's a great start to get back to Farmall.
I'm looking forward to the future with new and more Farmall badged products.

Case-IH merged with New Holland. The company name is now CNH Global. They own the brand names: IH, Case, STEIGER, New Holland, Kobelco, Concord, DMI and a few others.

The DX Farmall tractors are a "new" series from Case-IH. They range from 18 HP to 55 HP. The literature on the DX Farmall is a VERY nice piece!!!!

rondellh is correct, at the dealer intro of the new jx/jxu series tractors they told us that New Holland ( owned by Fiat) bought Case,, CASH not stock trade. That was a BIG check!!! Billions!!! :shock:

I worked for a Kobelco dealership. New holland bought 85% of the American stock but Kobelco kept the majority of the Asian stock. They will market some of the Hew Holland products in Asia.
Fiat is a huge company. One of the largest manufacturers of construction equipment in the world. It may even be the largest now.

The dealership I worked at began selling New Holland products around 1999. Except for the backhoes and skid steers it all seems to be made in Europe.
