    I was in South Korea 20 years ago for work & that's what so many of the farmers used, basically a gravely on a small plot of land. They have attachments for everything. The carts are the coolest though

    If it were cheap enough, that would be nice for a small garden. There is a huge price jump between walk-behind tillers and small tractors. @Haroun is right, it looks a lot like a Gravely.

    I lived and worked for five years in South Korea the first time in the early 80's. These single cylinder knock off's of an earlier Japanese design, were affectionally known by the Expats as Kim-Chee Cadillac's. The trailers were made out of the beds of the hundreds of Russian trucks that were abandoned when MacArthur cut off the North Koreans and Chinese after landing at Inchon. Whole families would travel down the roads in these things. They actually were perfect for the terrain. In the early 80's, 60% of the population lacked electricity and running water. Things have come a long way since then... Joe

    These are all over East Asia. Both Kubota and Yanmar make them as well just not for the Western markets. The engines are used for just about anything you can dream up and some are modified to insane levels. They even have special racing classes in just about all forms of motorsport.

    I appreciate the links to the videos. And the Norton you use as a moniker. They don't make them like that anymore... Joe
