Hinomoto C-144

Postby Indy4570 » Sat Sep 19, 2020 12:46 am

picked this up the other day with a Cimarron 4ft brush hog. cleaned it up a bit, it was running great when I bought it. seems to be one powerful beast. Some site claim its only a 14hp. I tend to believe the sites that say 18/20 HP. it is a 3 cylinder diesel. Hinomoto can trace its roots back to 1863 and a plow design, the first tractors were made in 1959, they won an award for the Japanese prime minister for excellence. They have made White, Allis Chalmers, Deutz-Allis, and Massey Ferguson tractors. Toyosho is the maker, bought by Hitachi in 1990 and the name was changed to tiera? something like that, but a wide line of hinomoto models are in service ( and filling boneyards) all over the world. this one was too cheap to pass on and has already done a ton of work. I have WIX numbers for air cleaner and oil filter, need to find the hydro filter and she will be drinking fresh oil and breathing clean air.

Nice. I heard of them, but I haven't ran across one in person.

The site I trust most states it is a 20 HP. I have a similar Kubota that we mow the acreage with, it's only rated at 17, but these are strong little beasts. And 4 wheel drive to boot! Great if you have some muddy or boggy conditions like I do.

the hinomoto has been a very good tractor, I have brush hogged with the 4ft hog it came with, pulled trailers, york rake. if starts every time, it has power to spare.
