A: We are importers and distributors
of fine quality power equipment from China.
What do we import?
A: The products include compact and
full sized diesel tractors suitable for agriculture, industry, construction
or even "weekend warriors" on their suburban "spreads". Trenchers, cultivators,
seed drills and other agricultural attachments. PTO powered wood chippers,
generators and water pumps. We also import a line of diesel powered standalone
pumps and generators.
A: For a number of years we have been
looking for a way to offer solid, basic and cost effective power equipment
in the U.S. There is certainly fine quality power equipment built in the
U.S., Canada and Japan, but it is expensive. We have spoken with many
hundreds of potential customers and the comments all seem to lead to the
same place. "Sure, embossed floor mats, colour coordinated
knobs and fancy paint jobs are nice, but what we really want is basic,
functional, durable and inexpensive equipment". We found this
equipment in China. Chinese industry builds more small diesel engines
(some 3,000,000 per year) and more diesel tractors than the rest of the
world combined. They have to! The Chinese represent 1 in 4 people on the
planet. By the middle of the next century it will be closer to 1 in 3.
Their very survival depends on these durable machines to produce food.
China is a developing country, they can't afford the luxury of special
tools and special equipment to service their tractors. They are SIMPLE,
they have to be. Anyone with a basic knowledge of diesel engines, mechanics
and a set of metric tools can service them.
Where in China do your products come from?
A: There are more than 60 clean and
modern factories in China producing Tractors alone, never mind engines
and attachments. We have done an exhausting amount of research to choose
the best factories for our products. We have also worked with these factories
to deliver our products in the configurations that our customers here
in the U.S. want. We have worked tirelessly with our Chinese colleagues
to build a product that "fits" our U.S. market, NOT import a standard
Chinese configuration that doesn't fit our market as some other importers
What about parts?
A: Dealers will keep a stock
of higher volume parts, such as filters etc. Bolton
Power Equipment headquarters
maintains a huge inventory of spare parts that can be shipped no later
than next business day to either you or your dealer.
do I purchase from Bolton Power Equipment?
a piece of power equipment such as a tractor or generator can be a daunting

yet. Just give a phone number and we'll call you to take the order.
What kind of Engines do your Tractors have?
AG-BOSS tractors have
3 or 4 cylinder, wet sleeved diesel engines fitted with high capacity
front mount hydraulic pumps. Other importers specify (2) cylinder engines
for their tractors, of course they do, they're cheaper. (2) cylinder engines
aren't as quiet or smooth as a 3 cylinder and most importantly they can't
operate for as long at high power settings as the 3 cylinder models. The
engine is the most important part of a tractor. We here at Bolton
Power Equipment chose the very best engines for our tractors
because we won't compromise on the respect we have for our customers.
If these tractors are such a good deal, how can
they be so inexpensive?
A: China has an enormous population.
As a result they have an abundance of labour. Couple this with a much
lower cost of living than in the U.S. and you get a much lower labour
cost. Because of this abundance of inexpensive labour the factories have
very little automation. Practically everything is done by hand. This means
the factories do not have to invest in expensive automated production
lines. In addition, the Chinese build their tractors to work, not to be
"pretty", like the Japanese manufacturers have taken to doing. If you
look very closely at a Chinese tractor you will see that their "fit and
finish" is often not perfect. Fit and finish is not important to the operation
of the tractor so the Chinese don't add to the cost of production by making
it look pretty.
if I'm interested in being a dealer?
A: Give us a call. We are always interested
in talking to people who are as exicited about these products as we are.
We offer (2) programs; (1) A full dealership where you inventory product
and service the machines. With this program we provide matching marketing
funds based on sales and flat rate warrenty support for the dealer. We
also provide sales support and territories based on volume commitments.
Prices based on initial purchases and ongoing volumes. (2) A partner program
where you purchase a demo unit and commit to be a reference site. We pay
you a commission for any sales leads that result in sales.
