Jinma tractors are a pain in the butt. I bought a backhoe, a backhoe pump to attach to the tractor. THe backhoe has 22mm hydraulic hose fittings, the pump has 227mm hydrauic female fittings all 1.5 pitch. No dealer in the entire US has anythign that can connect the two. I spend more than 50 hours total trying to find something. I have to buy a new pump or tap out a stadard hole in my Jinma pump to fit my Jinma backhoe. TOo many dealers. One dealer sold me the wrong parts for $100 (circle-g tractors) with a ripoff 25% restocking fee when he sent the wrong parts. Buy a Jinma and you're at some redneck dealer's mercy looking to make a buck for a $4 part, sending you the wrong stucc in order to at least make 25% profit. SO I'm out $45 with shipping for no parts so far. Buy a Jinma and have fun spending the rest of your days seeking impossible parts. By the way, many dealers won't have the part because in order to order parts, you have to order a crateload of tractors, then they put the parts in with them...so, if your order goes through, you have to wait 'till his next shipment to get your part...and many of these "dealers" I've dealt with cannot speak proper English--one didn't have the capability to measure thread and pitch to match what I needed. He wanted me to send the original hoses. Yeah, right--I'm going to send him my parts to lose or be at his mercy when he inflates actual shipping charges 5 times more. theother dealers won't sell anything to you unless you bought your tractor from them. need a part? You're better off going to a machine shop and manufacturing it. Overall defeating any savings from buying a Jinma.
