FT200A, is not a Kubota model number. Is this a loader frame number? No numbers on the hood of the unit? Any numbers on the mower that may help identify the unit?

Hi Curtis. I discovered of course that it is a Europard (Foton?) from China!! Its priced at €5,ooo ono and looks to be clean. But Chinese? What's your thinking?

Nothing I am familiar with. Foton is Chinese government tractor brand. What comes to mid to me, is the lack of parts support. Do you have a source for basic parts, filters, etc?
